Jester, one thing to give thought to, 650gx riders probably ride the bike like that, but 800 riders quite often have panniers, so if the aux tank was in the rear you'd likely get no sales on it... I'm not giving up my beautiful $1200 Jesse on this 7,000 mile road trip to extend my fuel range, I'd just fill up a fuel can.

Also, anyone who is willing to spend two G's to extend their range (this is where I go on a tangent) can send me two G's and I'll send you fuel cans that mount to the bike/panniers and either keep the extra 1,950 dollars or donate it to some poor kid so he can get new clothes or some starving kid in Africa. Some big purchases are justifiable, some are just ridic.
