Has anyone got any ideas on carrying extra fuel on bikes with small tanks, apart from the Moon reserve tank kit?
I rode that same stretch through Moab on my 883 hugger back in '93. I laid on my tank and sucked it in. Rolled into the gas station on vapors. **** to Sturgis and back with a 2.25 gallon peanut tank was certainly an adventure.I rode my new Triumph "07 T100" from San Diego to Grand rapids MI once. I planned the trip pretty carefully but there was one stretch I was worried about in Utah. I had about 110 miles or something with no services and it was up hill. I knew for a fact that with limited wind I can go 100 before hitting reserve. I did it strait up dirty style and just sneaked a ltr of gas into an Aquafina bottle and stuffed it into my tank bag. I don't recall exactly but I think I made it to green river without using it but it was damn close. I ended up puting 3.9 gallons into the 4.1 cap tank...
Yeah I know what you mean dude. I had my wide on the back with two bags and a tank bag clocking in at like 60 pounds since it was full of tools and guns, "don't ask" I think we hit a grain scale in Iowa and clocked in at 800 pounds or something. I never thought we would make it to green river. Awsome ride apart from the fear of being stranded without fuel in the Utah desert. I guess that's what the guns were for.I rode that same stretch through Moab on my 883 hugger back in '93. I laid on my tank and sucked it in.

I wouldn't trust that bottle from Ukranian Tire. MEC carries them. Ships out of Vancouver for cheap.i looked into the MSR bottles but with shipping to canada it doubles the price so what do you think about using one or two of these http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/brows....jsp?locale=en
