YEP...I am in the middle of the God forsaken desert and everything is spread out to get to anything out here, plus I do not have to keep filling it every week...lol...It also gives me more needed weight in the front end to hold things down...These Phantoms have a habit of wanting to pop wheelies when you goose the gas...lol.
makes sense. I refill before every ride just to be safe, just like i check head bolt torque before every ride. I guess it depends on your destination and purpose for the bike. I know I can do at least 3 trips into town without running out of gas but I still fill her up every time just in case. Same reason that 'weapons' are on the ready in my home just in case.
I have the stock gas tank, in case anyone wonders. If I ever do my 120 mile trip (one way) (gotta figure out some things first) i'm sure i will want the larger tank....
Many of us are using 100% ethanol-free gas. However, only one place sells it in my town. Therefore, a large tank allows me to make longer trips and not have to stop at stations that only sell ethanol-added gas. I have a 5-quart see through tank.
