I just can't decide. I'm looking at the Safari tanks (15L vs 23L). I'm planning on doing this trip in Feb:
Will the 15L suffice? I reckon from 15L I will get about 225km from this. About 345km from the 23L. This is at a guess of 15km/l. My current tank is 8L. Tanks are bloody expensive, the 23L is 715NZD + shipping+ import tax? The 15L about 472NZD + shipping+ import tax. Appears to be the best option though. Thoughts on getting the 15L and taking a 5L container for when I know I'm doing a long road, such as the Molesworth? Molesworth is only about 170km mind.
Also, any other cool off road tracks feel free to let me know.
Only other stuff I'm doing to the bike, is adding on a pannier rack and maybe looking at something like a wallet breaking giant loop rear bag. Or making my own out of old army packs.
Would this entire trip be OK on a single lot of oil? I.e. i wouldn't need to change oil midway? 2007 model.
