Good question. I don't know of any yet, but I'm sure a creative person could come up with a solution if demand if strong enough.

Many Iron Butt riders come up with remarkable auxilary gas tank setups. The slickest one I saw was a tank that replaced the rear cargo rack and still received the topcase. A length of hose and a switching valve connected it to the main tank. It's only 2" high but added several gallons.

There's quite a few aftermarket tanks out there, but most require you to stop and fuel the main tank vs. integrating with the main tank:

The subframe on my Husaberg 450 is an aftermarket part made by 70 Degree Racing that holds an extra gallon of gas. Creative minds at work indeed!

Default Mert was riding a Husky?

That's not the way I remember it. Maybe I should watch it again this weekend.

Yep, your foggy recollection of that iconic scene indicates it's been too long since you've last seen it!
