I have managed just over 100 miles out of the full fuel tank the other week before the reserve started flashing telling me how much fuel i have left and i might have bent my front rim slightly , but it was fun . if i ride it like a Sissy i can get 200 miles out of it so i WANT BIGGER FUEL TANK !

I think this number would be fairly close to the 340-360 km range to a tank that I get, that means that when its working ie a lot of 2nd 3rd gear work you are not going to make 300 km to a tank. Thats a real pain as it means that you have to start looking for gas every 150 km or so. Over here even on the inland highways gas stops are about 100 km apart (if they are open) so a few extra L in the tank means the difference between stopping 3 times on a ride or 6-7 depending on how you like to gamble. The XL1000s tank at 25 L was a real winner in that respect.
I think a 6 L tail tank would be a real winner here.

So your average speed is 40 km/h means you had to stop after 4 hours riding. Seems ok to me.

120 miles before reserve light comes on

I played a bit of Russian roulette and have risked another 15 miles with the light on.

So you are good with a 4 day trip were you would stop 27-28 times for gas compared to 15-16 times. I have to say I am not that excited about that.

I have done app. 3000 km now. Fuelage has decreased (as ecpected). At the moment the dashcomputer says 4,9 l / 100 km, just as promised! I'm not driving like a fool, but I'm not lazy either....

Out of interest, how do you input the data? I was using the gascubby app...

...just googled them and it seems fuelly bought them!

I always found it a bit of a pain to enter the data at every stop.
