Dead right...... of course with rear tanks the weight is carried low.

With rear tanks (22Lt) my procedure after filling would be to travel 100km with the rear closed. To lower the front levels to prevent syphoning, then run all 4 tanks at the same time till empty. The bike has a beautiful balanced feel to it. I do this on the road as well.

I also subscribe to the travel light line of thought. Very light!

This bike was born with 4 tanks to be ridden on the desert sands
