Hey Bernard,

Great write up!  Thanks!

With regards to fuel range on the CRF100L - This is what I will be fitting to my AT.  These tanks are being produced by Camel-ADV not too far from me in Canada.  I've been in touch with the owner.  Cory said that the brackets for my Bumot Defender pannier system are being worked on right now.

The Camel Tank is installed on the rear left side of the bike, opposite side to the exhaust. Occupying otherwise useless space, it adds 6.5Litres/1.7 gallons of extra fuel to your capacity for a total of 25.5 litres. That's an additional 100-150 km of extra fun before you need to start looking for a fuel station! 
For those not familiar with the concept. It feeds directly into the main tank whilst the engine is running. Once its empty the main fuel tank begins to be consumed.  You will see a 'full' reading on the fuel gauge until the camel tank is empty and the fuel in the main tanks starts to be used.

Note:  Does not fit when OEM panniers are installed!
