Yeah, but that gallon jug let me run a great two track without sweating the fuel situation. The second one is water from the last store to stealth camping.

3 bikes in a 5x8 enclosed trailer?

Specifically a KTM 690, a superten and a BMW f800gs?

Anyone think it can be done?

I was thinking maybe with the 690 backed into the middle?

For "all surfaces", 19/17 works soooo well on the BMW GS series, I have always had the lingering thought to try it on the 690. I just have no real need for new wheels or cash to waste playing with it.

Gets even more annoying... I went a known mile down the street(GPS at 30, speedo at 170) and the trip 1 on the odometer shows 0.20.
