    Anyone have a recommendation on a tank bag that will hold a few things, has a map pocket and won't be totally in my way with a Safari 30L tank? The Wolfman Enduro seems like a pretty popular option but I'm having a hard time visualizing how it could fit on without being obstructive.

    Thanks guys!

    I have the small Expedition tank bag on my DR with the Safari tank. The large Expedition is just too big

    I run the Wolfman Expedition Lite. Fits well and is not in the way.

    I had the same question. This is the answer from Mr. Wolfman himself:

    The Enduro is the best fit for many reasons, especially when standing up. So with that in mind the Explorer Lite would work BUT you will notice it when standing on the pegs.

    Thanks guys. Here are the bags under consideration and their respective dimensions (there doesn't seem to be a lot of difference besides width):

    I like the Safari overall. I love being able to ride for about 350 miles on a tank of gas and I have the color that you can see through so I always know how much fuel I have. The draw backs are that all of the fuel is heavy, you have to take the tank off to check the spark plugs and adjust the valves, and I have a hard time getting my tank panniers to sit right on the tank. Also, the wind shield I had wont work with the tank. But over all for my type of riding I am happy with it.

    I"m considering the Safari tank and am having to rethink windshields and seats around that one item.

    Which windshield are you talking about that did not work?

    Thanks,
