The Safari tanks aren't the only thing that showed up today

The tanks come in three colors: white(clear), orange, and black. Since my bike already has a "blacked out" theme going, the choice was easy.

If you aren't familiar with the aqualine safari tank design, basically it replaces your fuel tank and your upper fairing with one piece: a giant fuel tank.

I wanted to get some photos of them together to compare... the difference in size isn't that much and I wonder if the safari tank empty doesn't actually weight less than the sock tank + fairing?

You can see the leading edge thicknesses are actually fairly similar...
