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.
Don't forget new header nuts and crush washers
