Hi Craig,
the ol' jerrycan in the sidecar trick too low tech for you, eh?
Put the tee in the carb feed line. The gas will backflow through the 
gas tap and into the bike tank when the transfer pump is running. 
You will need a tall filler cap or a sealed one to prevent the main fuel 
supply flowing down into the extra tank and out onto the street.
Prevent overfilling the main tank during fuel transfer by making the extra 
tank no larger than the bike tank's main capacity and only switching the
transfer pump on when you run onto reserve.
