It would keep the weight down low.
What makes you think you can't? There are a few bikes that do that. One of them is the two wheel drive recon or rincon. No sure how they actually transfer the fuel over though......

2.5 gallon plastic gas can covered with a nylon bag, plumbed into the fuel line with a plastic lawnmower fuel valve. The tiny tank on the CX500 custom was only good for a bit over 100 miles.



2 gallon plastic can attached to the hook on my Vespa Rally 200 for my Alaska trip on 1978.

Love this set up. So easy to attach to the rear rack.

One gallon rotopax mounted on the toprack -- needed it on this summer's ride to Alaska.

2 MSR 1 litre bottles on either side of the tail light under the rear luggage rack, a 1 litre bottle on both right and left passenger footpegs/brackets, 500 ml (could have been 1 litre as easy, but ran out of them before trip) for camp stove/emergency fuel in the tail bag.

So at least a possible 5 litres (1.3209 US gal.) of fuel, tucked out of the way in unused spots, for a theoretical range of about 85 miles @ 64 mpg.

Going to add a Rotopax 1 gal. vertically in front of the tail bag, for next trip.

1.3 gal Acerbis number plate can, mounted to the subframe, plumbed to be siphoned into the air-tight main tank by the bike running.

4 Litre Liquid Containment Fuel Bladder strapped to the top of my giant loop great basin. Coupled with my 13.5L Safari tank I can get up to 500kms. When not in use it I just slip it into the (red) Big River drybag so it takes up minimal space.
