Last year on Black Friday justgastanks.com had a 25% off special... softens the blow a little bit.

Hmm,, thanks for the tip. 25% off $800 is pretty good.

I'm with you on the same issue. TT tank for X Challenge is bulky and $$$. 2 gallon Rotopax on the tail rack plus luggage... I don't know

Would the support truck, be able to carry gas for a KTM 990, my weapon of choice, for these kind of rides. I have a 2 gallon rotax, but that might not be enough?

This sounds awesome! I get about 250 mile range, that'll work, right?
