    Installed the IMS 17L tank. I'm really impressed, top quality product, easy install and I honestly hardly notice the difference between the stock and larger one. Even when going up some of the hills I used to tackle on the 300.

    I am really impressed with the bike. Only negative so far is the seat which is really painful on long rides. I've ordered a seat concepts through ADV Moto but have been given the usual 6-8 weeks timeframe which is really frustrating. I can't wait until we have a better supply of parts here. If anyone else is looking to buy a seat maybe we could order from the US and split the postage ?

    Took a bit of getting used to after the two stroke but I made it up. Even with the stock DOT tyres this thing has better traction than the TE when using the traction control. It's quite unbelievable.

    @Fearless Whetu that's a good looking hill and the white Husaberg looks pretty good too!
