I'm 53. My bladder has a shorter range than the tank I have on it now.

This fuel tank is still available. It's the perfect gift for those wanting to put the past as far behind them as a tankful will allow.

There are a few places where gas is more than 225 miles apart.  I found one of them on the North shore of Lake Superior where I had to get a half gallon of gas from a good Samaritan to make the last 1 1/2 miles to a gas station at Nippissing.  I might have made it but for a 15 mile side trip to see some sights.

I recently bought a collapsible 5L container that I can carry for an extra 50 miles when I need it.  I wouldn't carry a full container all the time, in fact, when the situation dictates I would fill it and put the contents in the tank as soon as the room was available.  The price is low enough that I can carry it as a one use emergency fuel carrier.

I carry a little 30 oz MSR fuel bottle which fits in the tail section.  It is only good for maybe 10 miles or so but it does allow me a little extra reserve if needed

Well you're right, but at least I can still stop for gas, not have an ugly tank and still pee without gas. :)

Remember when we used to have Ironbutt types hanging out here? Gwen (Shoganai) had a great thread that included designing and installing an aux fuel tank on the back of her K1100. I'm gonna go look for that.

Here's a link to Reply #3 in her saga that includes photos and text describing the auxiliary fuel tank.

Here's a classic Gwen ride report that starts with a question from Gary (DRxBMW), who passed away this year. We had some cool people hanging around the joint:

Still looking for her aux fuel install post; kind of lost in her transmission rebuild post.

ANyway here's a taste:

Go big or go home.  You canít have too much gas unless you are on fire. I used to run Heinrich tanks on my R bikes (still have one left) and now have a 5 gallon aux on my R12GS.  Iíd buy a big ugly tank in a minute if i could find one for the K11RS..

  I too am queer for big tanks. Had an 8  Heinrich on a  R90S for many years. I've been ridingK72's for 15 + years and have a 8 gallon Randolf tank most of those years. Mr. Randolf made the K bike tanks that BMW should have offered :2thumbup:
