by who?

for example, out west in WY there are remote ADV routes that you need over 200 mi range till the next gas station.
with a loaded with gear 800 getting maybe 40mpg (or less) you could be walking w/o extra fuel along.

for alot of our interesting ADV rides/routes we do a 200mi range is the safe #. sure you can find gas earlier, but that involves a boring & long out and backs just to fill back up. if you have the range, you can go the fun way. they guy w/o a 200mi range is not invited.
