JSRJR!?

How did you fill up on the Cannonball? The tank is pretty puny and I'd like to extend my range so I don't have to stop every gas stop.

(Edit: I'm talking about the Lake Erie Loop here, not everyday, it's fine for everyday riding)

I was thinking of picking up a couple of those shockproof aluminum Coleman Fuel containers, so right now the plan is to fill those up when I fill up the tank, then pull over when I'm low, pull off the tank bag, and dump them in when I get low.

It seems like you can't open the fuel cap with the engine running, has anyone figured out a way around that?

Bb.

Duh, sorry. Embarassed I knew that, I don't know how I typed it wrong three times...

That seems so... inelegant, but clearly it works, ha.
