when im just cruising on a trip i can get at least 120 miles out of the tank before she goes dry, so the extra is just enough to get me to a fill up station. the furthest im ever from a gas station is maybe 20 miles, so no need for me to go overboard with huge tanks. plus i can strap some goodies on the top

2gal rotopax on a custom side rack made by an ADV inmate (emerson.biguns), now more or less the same as what Wolfman sells.





After upgrading to a IMS 3.1gal tank and doing several longer rides, I'm comfortable with just an extra half gallon most places with two MSR bottles. When I had a Kriega US-20, like this...


Now they live in the right side enduro saddle bag for nearly all rides.

I didn't know what in the hell that was... so I googled it... not sure how my bike looks like that.... but the term 'steampunked' cracks me up everytime I say it.

I keep seeing pictures of bikes with milk crates on the back full of gas bottles, with people poking fun at them. Means I probably shouldn't post a pic of my Enfield doing the same thing.

There was a similar topic a few months back on this subject with some really good set-ups for the R1200's.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=654812

A favourite within the pages was the 20L Adventure Extender. It is still under development apparently according to their website at: http://www.fastforward.ca/motorrad/a...extender.shtml

Too bad we can't just fill the tires up with gas and exchange it with air when we need it.
It would keep the weight down low.

I realise you're joking... but the only thing worse than weight up high is weight that's not being held up by the suspension.

Add the centrifugal force, and your wheels are the worst possible place to add weight to the bike.

That's why we fill our tires with air, instead of foam or solid rubber or whatever.
