I had to spin it around like that a couple of times in the gully, the panniers made it a lot easier.
About those small fuel tanks. Pinon (15 miles away) had a non 24hr station. Cloudcroft (~50 miles away). Had one fuel station. Gas was few and far between. That is one benefit of the GSA. I had refueled near the edge of El Paso, but given it's effiency, it was still largely heavy and full on the forest roads.
Damn bike has twice the range of my truck, upon recovery I made sure to refill in Cloudcroft.
