Testing, tweaking and solid quality control is exactly why the tank isn't available yet. It's not being rushed to market to make a quick buck. Last I looked we had 19 Solidworks 3D versions. Each of those versions have numerous smaller revisions within them. 5 versions of the tank physically made. There are 6-8 sets of brackets in the shop that are all 1/16" or an 1/8" different here or there so they are just right. I have 6 versions of the mounting bushing that are are 0.10" or 0.020 bigger/smaller, softer/harder so they fit perfect not just when they are new but after tens of thousands of hard miles too.

My goal is to provide you guys with a product that looks factory and will do the job it's intended to do for a long long time...all at a reasonable price

Same here. The Camel Tank is my perfect idea of extending my range ;-)

Ulysses? No, it fits BMW F650/700800gs. 2008-current minus F800-GSA.

*edit* Just had a look at the Wolfman site. The front rack mounts use the under-seat-subframe-threaded-inserts so no, no Wolfman racks with CamelTank Ver.1. We will be starting on Ver.2 for the Hepco Becker/SW Motec style racks and will add the Wolfman racks to the "try real hard to make it fit" list
Damn. I might just have to buy the TT Zega racks just to get this tank!

Trust me when I say, you won't be disappointed in the TT Zega Pro Panniers. They are indeed the perfect balance of weight, durability, storage, and quality. I have them on all of my bikes. Had the H&B. the plastic hinges didn't hold up. The Trax boxes leaked too much, and the locks were an absolute and complete joke. The Zega Pro locks are the best out there. The Happy trails I had were nice, but too cumbersome. ZEGAS are the way to go, save the money in the long run. Buy one set and they will last forever. I can't wait to get this tank on my 800, my sons 800, and my wife's 650gs.

Feel free to add/like us on Facebook. It'll be easier for updates as I expect this thread will get kicked to the vendors thread as soon as I start selling.
