I need some ideas for extra fuel for Alaska let see em
There's a proper motorcycle example there...scroll down a bit.
Here is a shot of my Transalp at the Relais on the James Bay road last month.
Here's mine..old street signs turned into something new. LOL
To this. :)
The '82 Suzuki GS1100G -
The '94 Concours -
The '02 KLR -
The '03 Gold Wing -
It's rather obvious I'm not satisfied with the stock fuel capacity of most motorcycles.
One on both sides.
The Kolpin looks like a Rotopac.
I installed it and was glad to have it when needed.
Only complaint - don't load it up with a heavy bag on top because the tank squishes and folds at the seam.
I don't know if it will leak because of that.
just enough extra fuel for out of the way adventures
Cool! They look like rocket boosters.
everyone that comes up to talk to me on trips or when i throw them on there just for the heck of it never know what the heck they are....i always start off by saying there my boosters for those's steep hills
they work great almost half a gallon of reserve.
Gives me another 200 miles.
I made one for my last bike also ! I had to look for it.
My old bike (F650GS - single) had these fancy "peg packer" things I could mount on the passenger pegs - one on each side.
Now, I've simplified and gone a little more basic - Kolpin mounted on a cutting board.
1 gallon on the back seat
12 litre fuel bladder behind the pannier
Jumbo 1.5 liter alu flask, only used on long treks.
Pick up some 4 or 5 quart oil jugs at a truck stop. Use them and the discard (properly) when done. They are heavy and designed to hold petroleum.
buried in my post upthread, here is my latest iteration of the RotoPax for scooter solution. Roughly 70 miles worth of additional range there...
