    Thanks for the compliment.
    I hope you can make it to CJ's that would be awesome and I will defiantly be there.

    I understand the work / time equation, I have been very fortunate to have been very very busy these winter months
    and I hope that means some nice long rides this year.

    I will be in Bend for my first KTM rally this year but who knows what else may be in my cards...Pony Express maybe..

    More photos as per request.

    I had mine in three weeks and Aqualine had to make and ship them. Call Francois and see if what he can do. He did say that there was a container coming over I think at the end of this month and that almost all of the tanks were already sold.

    Been going through the same thing. Be prepared to add on at least $250 bucks in shipping from Oz.

    Don't think I'm speaking out of school to say he's planning a run of them. I'm torn... they sound bad-ass!

    Apparently, Safari's make it easier to ride a front flat 45 miles back to safety. Unfortunately, they also make it easier to pinchflat the 3 tubes you carry with you. :lol3

    I got 400 miles, without touching a foot down, out of my 2001 Triumph Tiger with 6 gal std tank and 4 gal custom aluminum LDrider type of rear tank, when I did all my BC, Alaska, NWT riding back in 2003 but this is the OC thread so I can't post a pic of it here. :lol3

    My 990 only has 7.2 gals on it so I don't qualify unless I add a Rotopax or two.
