I know they get great mileage, but I worry about the small tank. Is there a bigger tank available?
I run LeatherLyke Contemporary style bags.

The Sporty does okay off-pavement, but I take it slow.

As always, a 500lb+ bike in sand is a handful. And the C of G of the Evo XL is actually higher than a BT, and the FE heads are even worse.

As far as a bigger tank, fattank.com sells a 5.5 gallon one, but it's REAL expensive. And paughco sells a 4.2 gallon tank that looks okay, but would need prep before use. And no telling how the aftermarket tanks will hold up under dirt road abuse.

The other direction is taking a 4.2gal Dyna or FXR tank and fabbing up mounting brackets or buying a bracket that allows Fat Bobs to be mounted. If I decide to go with a bigger tank, these last 2 options are the ones I'm going to consider.

I usually get close to 50mpg off-pavement, because I'm not out there trying to be Jimmy Lewis. That's 140mi until reserve, and another 25 until I'm walking.

Nice bikes folks!

Lets see some more!

I also like all the wierd Harleys.

Any Ameracchi (sp) Harleys? Those & the scrambler/tracker style ones are my favorites.

I also like the very very early sportsters and any prewar daily riders. Let see some photos of the oddballs.

Cheers

Yes, more scrambly, dirt-tracker, off-roadie, old sportsters! (PLEASE! I love them.)
