Thanks much.
I put a 3.4 gal tank on when I went to Belize. If I travel 55 to 65 MPH I can get 150 to 170 miles before hitting reserve but this trip when cruising 80 to 95 MPH I once hit reserve at 107 miles. I always need to stay aware of where I am, how much gas I have and where the next fill station is. To me this kind of adds to the adventure, what fun is having a big cruiser tank where you don't even have to think about it (Yes, I know I'm warped).
