I've got a Rotopax. It's nice to have a little extra fuel when needed. It's definitely a stout little can, but the nozzle kinda sucks. (press in for flow) and part of the locking mechanism has broke on it, but it still works, just doesn't lock. Also, I have it on my rear rack and I'm not worried about strapping stuff on top of it.

Having said that, if you really need extra capacity all the time, I'd go with a new/bigger tank.

Yep, the barley pop is good (home brew and micro brews), the sandwiches are really good, and Tiffany is not too hard on the eyes. Had a crush on her for years, but she likes girls as much as I do...

Well, as long as you get to watch, that's not such a bad thing!

Wow, these things are uber light when you strip off all that pesky bodywork and gas tank. I think it weighs about the same as the DR.

that makes sense then, since Mama Deans was closed, they spied the first place within proximity that served food!

Get both. I actually prefer the IMS tank on the DRZ as it also acts as a radiator guard. The roto paxs are nice because they can be left at home when not needed. But you don't always have to top off the tank either. I have both the IMS and some rotopaxs if you want to look at them before ordering anything.

Got free tickets to the razorback b-ball game tonight, so we are off to it. Won't be a thousand people there, just some exhibition. Anything Sophia enjoys that is free I am in for. Weather is always good at the B-ball games too.
