... can you say ironbutt
It takes longer to fill a tank from rotopax than it does from a gas pump, time wise. And iron butt rides, in order to get that many miles in one day, are mostly road rides - which have gas stations. There's just no need to carry that much gas (even the TT tank is overkill) when you are on regular roads.
