Kind of an accident, but I like the way this one turned out.

mine again

A quick shot with the Kolpin 1.5 gal aux fuel can, plastic tool holder (actually a hand gun case - $14 at Gander Mountain) and $18 horse saddle bags from Tractor Supply. Side racks are from Happy Trails. All worked just fine in a pinch - I was working from a tight budget.

BMW Dakar screen, and yes big Safari. It's great because it cuts out all the wind on the freeway, with the stock tank my legs would be blown open by the wind, along with an amazing fuel range it also supports you when standing up and leaning forward.

Cheers

Hey, this is an issue with me, the wind blowing my legs apart on highway. Anyone have a comment on how the IMS 4.9 tank helps this?

Before the Safari I would use passenger pegs at higher speeds, worked great.
