Most of the miles on my Vulcan 750 are from long distance interstate riding. There are almost always gas stations close enough together for it not to be an issue. I put gas in mine without getting off the bike. I just pull up to the pump, open the gas cap, stick the card in the pump, and fill the tank. I use a magnetic tank bag on longer trips, which I usually just remove and lay on top of the pump.
There have been times I needed to carry extra gas, and I did so in those one gallon plastic oil jugs. I can easily ride 500 miles on the Vulcan 750 without needing to get off. That is one of the main reasons I have bought two new ones, and why I still have one. This bike was built to ride, not to look at, though I think it looks pretty good too.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
