DRZ400e - 17lt or 28lt safari tank? Thoughts?

I'm running a brand new DRZ and I'm going through the motions of ordering my good bits! I've been trawling the posts but can't find a good answer to 17lt or 28lt question. What pitfalls will I hit with the 28lt? Most of my riding will be well under 300km before a refuel... However there are some big rides in the future... 17lt with a nomad tank could be the ticket?

Just my 2 cents, the bigger the tank the longer the ride & the more peace of mind.

my E gets such good gas mileage that a very large tank seems overkill -I run a 14l ascerbis and it lasts a long time plus its slimmer ...but if you are planning a cross continent tour then disregard my advice.

I'm trying to avoid my bike becoming too pregnant and hefty on the single track work... I've heard there can also be complications with the radiator guards and a brace with the 28lt
