You must ride where gas stations abound, and the road is always smooth.
I have an extra fuel tank, and I have never noticed a detrimental effect on bike handling from having it-- even in mud or sand. I have noticed it's saved my ass a time or two.
I have also noticed my bike could benefit from the added travel of an S-spec suspension, if only just for the half-assed cattle guards & railroad crossings we have around here.
