    Additional fuel capacity

    Has anyone experience with added fuel capacity ? For the kind of riding that I do now it probably wouldn't matter, but after I retire I might try some longer rides where limited stops are a plus.

    Thanks gang.

    Nothing fancy...just a 1 gal rotopax that I have left over from my adv/dual sport days.  The mount attaches to my rear luggage rack/top rack with a couple screws so I leave it off unless I really need it.  Here's a pic of it under a small Kriega bag on my 690.

    You can't teach pigs to sing - it only frustrates you and annoys the pig.

    I have a couple of these Desert Fox 6L bladders (https://www.nippynormans.com/camping-travel/desert-fox-folding-fuel-cell-6-litre), which you can tie down to the top of your panniers or topbox with cargo nets or rock straps. They come in 3L as well I think. They're flexible so they pack down really small when they're not in use.

    I have 2 of these:

    Inside 1 of these:

    Then strap it to the bike where you have room.  It actually fits nicely under the rear rack above the tail light.  You can see it a bit in this picture:

    Nice. Thanks. I like the hard bags. Mine currently has Mototech soft bags.
