But there are other means, like the side panels tanks. You can buy a side panel tank here... http://www.boano.com/special.asp?id=51&mod=no
which will help in keeping the weight low, while adding 17 liters of petrol.
Another radical move, will be to build a tank where the airbox/ or battery box resides, if possible. I've heard about this before but dont know if it is possible.
Not to piss on your parade, but aren't you riding a want to be Africa twin?
The rally bikes all had the larger tanks and the seat tanks for more petrol. So whats the big deal, the bigger tanks carry the fuel low on the sides of the motor. That looks alright to me.
