I think to make it bigger the best way is to make it wider. If you change the side profile it will change the lines of the bike. Unless you are going for a Mad Max look. I carry an extra gallon in 1 qt bottles if I have any doubts about running out. My first 2 Vulcans would go on reserve at around 120 miles. But since it has tubeless tires, I don't have to lug around all the stuff you would need to repair a flat tube type tire. I have saddlebags, a T bag, a tank bag, and have room on the passenger part of the seat for another large bag, which also provides back support. I have always been "mission specific" I carry what I think I will need on a specific trip.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
