    Extra Fuel

    Sometimes you can undertake a journey that is just beyond the capabilities of your bike or you can set off for a ride without realising just how much you have left in the tank.
    My tip is to buy fuel cans that are made to be mounted on motorcycles, manufacturers produce cans in a variety of shapes and sizes that can be adapted to motorcycles.

    This sounds like a good idea, though you have to make sure the fuel cans are filled and carried safely and efficiently. I never ride out far enough for this to be a major concern but it seems to make sense for the more adventurous riders.

    Extra fuel is important but I think it is always important to check how much you have left. If you have been riding a bike for sometime, it will be easy to estimate how much fuel can be used for a particular distance.

    I have never carried extra fuel for my bike because I normally prefer to estimate my usage based on the distance to be covered. However, it can be very beneficial to carry fuel cans, just in case something beyond our control happens.

    It is always good to carry extra cans of fuel just in case you have forgotten to correctly estimate the distance that you will run with the what you have in the tank. Also, you may be riding for a long distance and fail to get near a fueling station. Nonetheless, I have never run out of fuel even without the extra cans.

    It is always a good idea to carry extra fuel. I have never run out of fuel at any point because over time, a rider learns to estimate the amount of fuel to be used over some distance.
