Yes, Qwik attacked me and didn't leave me any options.. His left side kick is Qwik.

So, I shed some tears and he took off with them in his truck...

When are yours coming in? Have a date yet?

EDIT: Nevermind. Found a chemical company down here and bought a square foot of commercial grade ethanol resistant rubber for $6.42.
Tip: lightly countersink the tank side of the plates' holes before you remount the plate. The threaded inserts in the tank sit slightly proud and can prevent good pressure on tightening.

I figured expansion space would be important

When I originally put my tanks on, the stock bars were set pretty low, even with KTM risers.
I was real close to smacking the caps at full lock.
My Scott's damper changed that.

Some things I have noticed, the entire tank lights up with the blinker. You are VISIBLE. They go on easier than the stock setup. They feel better than stock when you are riding standing up (You were right Bikyto) don't know what it is but more comfy. Aand the look on peoples faces when you put more in fuel your bike than they put in their car. tends to make you do this with the cost of fuel

I love pulling up and parking next to a flock of harleys.

"Holy shit that thing is huge" is the common reaction as the lowest point on my bike is higher than the tallest point on their's.

"Your little bikes are adorable!" is a good response if they're posers

I completely agree. Even while sitting, my knees grip better of the rough stuff.
I rode a stock-tanked 990 after having my Safaris on for 12k miles,
and I was suprised how uneasy it felt not to have that extra wide knee grip.

You didn't have to bug me, you had dibs so they were ready. But oh well, that's in the past. You'll be happy with your choice of color. Hope they come in soon.

Plus Qwik attacked me... Didn't I mention that

That's it. Exactly how I feel.

Knee grip? I don't touch the tanks at all with my knees when standing?
My feet are out on the end of the pegs pushing down. The whole "ball & socket" thing.. detaching my movement from the bike's.

er... at least I don't think so.. maybe I do?
I'll need to pay attention next time I ride it.. its been so long I can't remember

Let me check a photo..

Country living outside of small towns has LOTS of advantages

The price of that fuel, however, is not one of those advantages
