Buy a Super Enduro and you'll be looking for fuel every 100 miles!

They were thoroughly tested during the Roaming Rally. Not even the slightest issue. The reason I ran out on the 80+ mile stretch through the wilderness was stupidity. Chose not to top up at the last fuel stop.

I may have done that

I've learned that, even with my 4.7 Clarke on the XR, when you get a chance to top up, Top The Fuck Up You just never know when you're gonna need that fuel (my buddy and I nearly ran out in the middle of nowhere in Gaspe because we didn't take the change to fill up before heading out into the wilderness....still not sure how we got back )

That looks real good Boats, it's got me thinking about my current setup

if your leash is only 100miles long, a liter of fuel isn't going to help much! personally i'd look to a perm. installed aux tank. even if you have to open a pet cock to access the additional fuel , the convience outweighs the installation hassels.

The super enduro only holds about 3.6 gallons...... usually not an issue unless I don't top off when fuel is available. The couple times I have run dry because of neglect, I've been no more than 5 miles from fuel. The 2 liters in that case are more than enough. I've been all over the hills of Moab and a couple Canadian trips and the stock tank was fine. I don't feel the need for the huge tanks people are installing on the rear and a safari tank is not my bag either. I found a company that makes 1.5 liter fuel bottles and will probably get them at some point.

That's a six gallon African Twin tank.
BUT wait there's more......
Hidden under the seat, where the air box was, is a custom made three gallon aux. fuel tank.

It would be worth checking to see...

The trailer was cheaper by half of the others I had seen... and I love it for commuting. I even had him make a bracket for my GS

You're welcome.

The trailer breaks down for shipping.It's simple to reassemble.It doesn't come with the box.You can source something local to your liking.

Here's the thread about the motomule.You can ask Mr. Bracket about shipping and other options.

Overkill, but has been used a couple times

Think I spent less than $20 for this extra bit of petrol insurance. Bike water bottle holders, metal backing plate on inside of ActionPacker..etc. So far it's been used solely for my riding buddies small bladdered bikes. This setup has survived some very hard riding.

Someone wanted pics of a Wee. Here is mine with a one gallon Rotopax mounted on either side to the Hepco-Becker Crash bars. So far so good with a few drops in the driveway and on the trail. No high speed offs yet. Seem to be holding up really well.
