Safely carrying extra fuel for me is all about convenience. I can stop or not and plan my stops when I want. The auxiliary tank on my Valk gives me the confidence to travel over 300 miles. Before adding the aux tank I was looking for fuel at less than 140 miles. Probably worse now because E10 hurt my fuel economy. I usually only carry a couple of quart canisters on the Vee and I've never had to use them. But they helped us push on once when one of our other riders got low on fuel. Traveling the back roads out west can put gas pretty far apart and several have closed due to the economy.
