This won't work kuz it is sub 300 lbs. You get the 300 miles of range by doing this...twice... with the (3.4 g) 13 liter orange tank...



and for the lights ...

so if you do your map/math right, then those ass weights are an option if you need them, but i've never needed 300 miles but i only ride the western us... other continent vary i suppose. 200 miles, ya.

Acerbis has this one out. 5.3 gal. Quite new, some possible fit up issues. Looks nice, tho. I went with the 3.4 gal KTM tank to keep weight aft, not forward. Pros n cons...

I have the 3.4 on my 520 and I love it but I'll admit that I am always stretching the limits. Not quite getting harcus mileage about I think that 5.3 is the ticket actually. I did rotopax on the rear and it definitely did look cool and was functional but I still think that 5.3 is the ticket...

That 2012 EXC, again so cool...

You've never NEEDED a 300 mile range because you're planning the wrong fucking routes! Remember our friends in near Baker that gave us fuel?

If I had a 300 mile range, I'd purposely avoid gas stations. J-true, Pilo, and I did a loop last year that had well over 250+ miles before fuel. Of course, J-true breaking his arm, and Pilo's bike shitting the bed shortened it up a bit.

Taking a year off because of the new youngster and limited time. You can't leave a kid in a fenced yard, like a goat.


I'm still riding, just putting in more effort.

I'll let you guys know. The fires in Colorado have kinda stymied our plans for next week. We may head to Tennessee instead for job interviews and to look at neighborhoods.
