Speaking of gas, did you ever have to break into the reserve tank on the R2? I've about set on making it to Colorado in August, not sure if I want to add a gas can or not (right now I'm planning on using EB's rack for water).

Yes I got into the reserve part of the fuel tank often, found I had about 1/4 gal of fuel at that time and I was getting in the high 60's for mileage so would estimate about 25 miles max on reserve to be safe. I too have the rotopax and love it but sure could use the extra storage it takes up. Also I think the bigger tank will better distribute the weight on the bike. Supposed to be in stock on 6/22/09 so we'll know then I guess.

Vario Windshield

It is a Vario Windshield and I would not ride those kind of miles without some kind of windshield. You will find several options available, I like this one because of the versatility, you can raise and lower it depending on highway or trail riding and totally remove it in 30 seconds too if need be.
