Well after doing the Rotopax soloution for the past couple of years and patiently waiting for the rumored redesign of the Safari tanks or some other brand to step up to the plate and offer a set of tanks for the 990 I ordered a set of translucent Safari tanks today for a couple of big trips later in the year. So now I expect the new and improved Safari's or the Acerbis versions to be available in the next few weeks just because they were waiting for me to commit to the original too big Safari's. Oh and just to be sure I couldn't back out, I got an email that they shipped two hours after I placed the order including a tracking#
So for any you of waiting for another soloution for bigger tanks or a 40% off sale on the Safari's, you're welcome.

That 4 foot diameter tree never stood a chance against a full throttle, going off the rails on a crazy train 990
That turn signal and the Jesse's took a beating but that Safari barley had a scratch
That incident was on my list of the pro's of buying the tanks
