I never heard of aux tanks being illegal. Where would you look to find out what States have this law? IB riders from every state have them mounted on their bikes in plain site. AlWhat a lot of people don't realize is that auxiliary fuel tanks on motorcycles are illegal in almost every state. of of course some one outside of the US probably wouldn't have a problem.
It's not about the rush. It's about the challenge. And believe me, when you start doing 15 plus hours in the seat. You want it to be a comfortable seat!! :cheeky1:What is the rush?? The Wing ain't for hurrying, it's for touring. If I'm in that big of a hurry that I don't want to stop for fuel I'll take the minivan and let the Hag drive while I grab a nap! hahahahahaaa
WOW, 500 miles and 12 hours away from documenting one awesome ride, but Kudos from me on a job well done. 3000 in 3 is the best i've ever done and that is gruelling, 2500 in 2 1/2 days is one awesome ride too. One of the things that make the IB rides more difficult is documentation as was mentioned here. Every change of roadneeds documentation of some sort which puts pressure on and makes the ride more intense. As you get into certain areas of the Country fuel stops can be a bit farther apart than expected and this is where the AUX gas tank comes into play.With a AUX tank youcan plan to run 200 miles per stop, then start looking for fuel. I've done it and it was an extra 30 miles before I hit an open station at night and Aux fuel kicked in. Anyway, that had to be one great ride, congrats and remember you did it and got back safe and sound. AlI did 2500 miles in 2 1/2 days in one week end. Spartanburg, SC to Ft. Worth, Tx. Didn't keep track of anything, didn't know about IB runs back then.
