I've had a bladder leak in my backpack ended up tasting it in the water.Good idea not fool proof.
Thinking of running somethin similar as you've suggested with plastic jerrys in the saddlebags and canvas bags of over the seat slung down low for water for my next trip.It has even been suggested i could rest a 10L jerry in my lap for one part of the trip.

I want to put one on mine and get some graphic's made (with breather holes) for the top half of the tank to make it look like the stock red shrouds with the Husky graphics. Is the Safari logo a decal or is it a molded in plastic part?
I will try to get the sticker off part of one side is already missing.
Once fitted it will probably end up with a screen mounted off it as well.If it's to big and black will make some fibre covers for the tank.Pics when it happens,collecting bits atm.

The logo is molded in, no removing it.

So how do you carry fuel for that distance? (1100km/680mi)

I'm still dreaming of crossing the Bearing Sea from Alaska to Siberia. Besides visas, marshes, frozen tundra there is 3,000KM with no gas stops in that trip...

Will_S,
Thanks for the picture of your TE630 with the black Safari, I like it very much
I just wish I could figure out how to add the graphics to it like this pic, then the black areas of the Safari tank would closely resemble the stock radiator shrouds that it replaces.
I have some ideas but the black tank is not available in the states....too bad they dont make the tanks so you could bolt the stock graphics shrouds on it.

You could make covers from fibreglass and paint.A mate has done some nice carbon fibre ones on a ktm to go over the plastic rally tanks.Worked well.I had planned to do the same but don't mind the look of the big black tank.

Exactly.

Works pretty well at keeping the air blast off of my chest and onto my helmet....
