    Anyone know of any auxiliary fuel tank besides the camel tank. The only thing i hate about my bike is fueling every 2 or 3 days View attachment 1661728

    What's wrong with using the camel tank ? I have one on a f7 and f8 and they're great.

    I have a set of oem vario case side rack and I don’t think the tank fits with this rack on

    Also interested, my last few trips in the rural mountain west have pushed the limits of my fuel range on my F700gs. Was looking at the camel tank, but I also have the OEM Vario side cases which don't work with the camel tank.

    one option:

    another option is something like this (Plumbed for fuel lines for gravity feed into the gas tank, available in sizes up to 5g):

    and let's not forget the classic, strapped to the seat:

    you can carry gas many ways...I've used the Camel tank on my F800GS...and a gas can strapped to the back seat of my R12GS. I've even gone with a couple MSR .5 Liter bottles in a tail pack.

    It's just a question of how frequently you want to use it and how you want to manage it.
