Fuel Pod Mod

In my quest to extend the range I am exploring some fuel bottle options ...
This was the first mock up that will carry a 30oz MSR fuel bottle ...

Looks good, but if want some capacity, check out the Roto Pak. High quality, doesn't leak, sturdy lockable mount and comes in many sizes. I had a 1 gallon on my dual sport and never leaked a drop. Good luck. Jevers

Im always intrigued by these.....its never really a big issue in the U.K. (as its not that big!), but imagine they can be helpful over there.

Tell me though - how is fuel decanted without spilling it all over the tank? Im a putz at the best of times, so would probably end up in flames! Is there some sort of spout, or filler, that comes with one? Youre transferring fuel from something that has, I presume, a pretty wide neck (to get the fuel in there in the first place), into the little hole in the tank, with lots of lovely paintwork around it - howd you do it?!

Do you understand half the **** he says? No, but I know what he means.

Slow and steady - the MSR fuel bottles pour like a champ - you can always use a improvised newspaper funnel if it’s real windy

I don't know if that ever happens in Michigan. My only method of extending my fuel range is dependent upon a passerby that is a Good Samaritan. Or a fellow rider that gets better mileage than my SCR.
It was under $10 and fits nicely on top of my underseat Stash Bag from @Krixtoph

Happens all the time out west. I use the Fuelfriend 2 liter bottle, same as the Touratech bottle. It fits, tightly, in a 200 round surplus SAW gunners pouch. I drop it in a saddlebag for long day rides, and when I tour I carry two on my seat bag, a SW MOTECH 700. The pouches attach on the MOLLE panels.

Gray is faster. Its science.

Hmmm... Less'ee, 167 miles from where I live (central CT), going west gets me to PA., North, just shy of Canada. East, Provincetown, Cape Cod. And South, about 100 or so miles into the Atlantic. You guys in the mid-west and west coast have got miles and miles of miles and miles to ride. To put things in some sort of perspective, the land mass of CT is 3.6 million acres. That of California is 101 million acres.
You can fit 28 CT's within California's boarders. It'd be awfully hard not to find a gas station in my rides. Just sayin'
