Here's a pic of the bike at Phelps Park in Decorah.
Yo scooter noob.

Get yourself an acerbis rear fender gas tank, drill holes in the TT rear fender rack to mount it and run fuel line under your seat and pipe it in to your main tank vent.

Just remember 2 important things. Always have your aux fuel tank vented and always check for fuel in the aux tank BEFORE you open the main tank. Unless you like to bath in gas.

I was getting 200 miles to 210 miles before my reserve light kicked on on my way to Darby MT last year.

That's next on the list. My friend is finishing up my Pannier rack for my soft cases, and I got a tankbag ordered.

2whlrcr...there is a gas station in decorah, in fact there's at least 2 of them. There's even a Wal-Mart, its becoming Big-Time.

Hot Damn, the tankbag I ordered gets shipped out on Monday, and I get my fender tank ordered on Friday. Things are coming together for my week of Northern Minnesota backroad vacations. Now...if I could only find my trusty old digital camera...
