What happens when you park a big tank 950, with a 6'7" 275lb Ausie on it? The cute little bikes park very far away

Aside from the high fender, that'll basically be what mine will look like. Once pigs fly and the boat from Austrailia gets a newer outboard to bring those damn tanks over here.

I believe for 2012, the boys down under are making the 990 Safaris out of unobtainium.

Safari's looking bad ass

That orange fat tank on Jay's bike looks sooo right. Maybe just a good photo... I'm glad they don't make them in '04 Rally blue or I'd be into a big hurt on a set myself. I hope Safari sticks to the ugly clear color to ward off more potential buyers. Or have Geek shoot their adds to increase the heat.

I'm in the club as well!

My Safaris swallowed 13 US gallons on the first fill-up.

























I'm looking forward to getting more riding time this summer.

I am going to install a couple of Amber LEDs behind mine for night time riding. The blinkers illuminate the entire tank when they blink. I want to see what the LEDs will do. Visibility at night is a good thing.

The other day i paid the deposit on the reartanks(work of art) from Pete640.
I got the translucent safaris but they need welding before i can mount them up. The RC8 cooler is almost 8cm deeper. But soon i´ll be in da´club. All you guys/gals crusing around makes me itch for riding...
Keep the pictures comming.

Winter started to leave today. Couldn't help but pull the black bitch out of the garage and slide around a bit.

WOO HOO!



I just got the good word from our boy CJ that my black set will be shipping to me from the land down under on April 4th!



He also says to mention he's got a couple more sets with his name on them if anyone wants a set. Better hurry... they'll go fast. Email CJ asap if you want some!
