I am thinking about mounting a rotopax 2 gallon tank to the back where I have a givi rack attached.
I can go 130 miles before I need to find a gas station, and I am ready to stop and stretch by then. The problem with the 130 range isn't me, but I like to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway when I head north and I find that gas stations are few and far between and I don't want to run out of fuel nor do I want to have to ride 20 miles into a town and back. I wish they had put the tank capacity for the 1200 sport on the GRiSO.
I am headed to a COG rally in Pennsylvania in July and want to ride most of the BRP north and the range concerns me
I've ridden the whole thing and no issues at all on fuel. You will get a little increase in your mileage on the BRP anyways.
Also, Mark's map will extend your range some too. I Get somewhere between 10-15 extra miles per tank before the light comes on.

Mark's map was one of the first things I got when I got the GRiSO. I ordered a 1.75G rotopax today so now i won't worry about running the BRP and finding fuel

I ordered a 1 gallon rotopax to see if i could mount it on a tankring above my tank, it is doable, but looks too ugly. I am back to looking at modifying the tank,
Also my mileage went down with beetles map, but my avg speed went up!!

I was going to ask why not strap a Rotopax to the outside of the luggage for the times where you need the extra range. That is a simple, easy and inexpensive solution. Here in Colorado, there are places where the gas stations are few and far between. My wife and I have discussed that she'll be carrying the Rotopax for me if we decide to do a trip where I ride the GRiSO. It is a fair trade since I carry the Rotopax on the KTM when she is on her Beta 2T.
