Give the LDRider community time and you'll see some aux tanks for the new Wang. Probably at first one that sits above the passenger seat but, eventually you'll also probably see a tail-dragger design.

And for the trunkless model, you'll probably see some that sit where the trunk would be.

the new Goldwing, nice looking bike with a fuel tank that's too small. I can get over 200 miles on a tank of gas on my 1500 wing. that said it is time to get a newer wing and I have been looking at the 2001- 2010 wings but not for more power but for much better brakes. as for stopping every 200 miles for fuel, just because your bike has a greater fuel range than 200 miles doesn't mean you can't stop it just means you don't need fuel

So right. First time riding into the wind in this area was surprised to see mileage dropping to barely 30 mpg on the ST! Strangest part is that you expect spectacular tailwind mpg on the way back, only to find out that the wind has turned around in the mean time and again forces you down to third gear (or doing stupid things like riding too close behind a large SUV!).
