Link to one of my desert rides... I carried 55 litres for this 800+kms loop.

Stuffed if I know what I'll be "showing off" when I fit one those "elephant tanks" to my AT.
Hi Farcall, great pictures! Is the AT going to become the weapon of choice once you get the fuel range up or are you going to keep the DR for bush riding? I've got some Australian touring planned for July but not sure if I should bring the AT and just stick to the main routes or bring a XR or DR for increased versatility? -DR with the Safari tank obviously a popular choice for the outback. Any feedback on your own preferences? Thanks for sharing the amazing photos also Squily. Got an amazing country over there.

Sascha: great photo's on the web (not bad country through the Molesworth eh!?) and good luck with RTW....awesome!
