I'd get the tank. It's easier to ad an extra bag for stuff, than a proper storage for fuel.
I only shared my experience)))
Actually mine was running lower, flat with the bottom passenger peg bracket to ensure complete emptying of the ADV tank.

Running the line outside the frame, fixed with the robust 10mm plastic ties and resting in the bend above the plastic frame protector has proven itself bulletproof!!!...unfortunately not so much the case with the right hand side main tank line getting burned on the exhaust one day, just because it got one of the plastic clamps around battery case opened and was sitting higher and resting on the exhaust header....almost set the bike on fire

Simple advtank lower bracket...

Of course I stole this setup from another inmate in years past. It secures the lower tank away from the swingarm path... and it uses the passenger frame mount as extra support for the weight of a full tank.

There is a better bracket I've seen for those who weld, but I've been using this for some time and it solves the advtank from sagging just as well.
