Welcome Fellow Albertan!

Several here have switched to a Speedmaster tank, a pricey but effective option. I have been watching for a used one, but nada so far.

Hi Marcel,

Welcome to the forum mate.

I'm one of those chaps that swapped to a Speedmaster tank (and headlight), pic attached.

Expensive but have no regrets.

Welcome to the group! As others have said, there are options out there, but they aren't cheap.

Each one matters.

Welcome. Where I tend to ride, stops between stations isn’t usually a problem but, for those longer trips, particularly in Canada, I would think it is so the larger tank makes a lot of sense. It’s just the $$$. I wonder if Triumph will ever offer a larger tank version?
