with your pack on the gastank handlebars. 2 on both front and back of a tall "buddyrest" on the back of the bike, 2 in the saddlebag positoin. 33 gallons times 70 miles a gallon on pavement or some pasture-desert terrain, or 30miles a gallon off road. Say, 50mpg average. 1500 miles, without finding a SINGLE lawnmower, boat motor, weedeater, combine, tractor, car, etc with some gas in it , or in cans nearby? Not anywhere in the lower 48 states, count on that. A guy who's LOOKING is going to find such extra gas every few hundred miles, man. There's MILLIONS of motorcycles, so NOPLACE in the lower 48 states can't be reached, rather easily, in a day or two, from towns or cities.
