Have read through all the posts regarding carrying gas cans.
Because I'm planning some cross-country on my GTS 250, I stopped by a dealer's parts dept yesterday and looked at plastic thin-profile types, figuring to bungee-cord it down between my feet on the floorboard, probably using the eyebolts suggested in another thread.
Not to flog a dead horse, but may I ask what has been the real-world experience of folks who've done this? The parts guy opined that it was "insane", and a guarantee to become a moving fireball - looked safe enough to me, but what do I know?
Not interested in the heavy metal type plumbed into the fuel tank, and don't want to lose rack space needed for luggage - would just like a couple of gallons aboard for when I hit the long lonely stretches...
TIA, Dudes and Dudettes,
