The safari tanks may not suit everybodies needs. I need more fuel, but not hanging in front. My off road rides are soft desert sands where the heavy front is already a handfull. In the soft sands i get half the fuel mileage so the tanks will need to be full and more fuel in the front would only exacerbate it. Thats why i'm waiting for Pete640's Rally Replica rear tanks. Extra fuel goes on the back side and saves the front end from handling 40ltrs of fuel, which is needed when i want to ride even a smallish 200kms.
