The most expensive tank bag in the world!!

As it seemed cheaper to get my new Giant loop tank bag delivered to a Freind in the states, I thought it was a great idea!

But now having taken into account the flight, hotel, car hire, and food and drink all needed to collect it, I think it may well be the most expensive tank bag ever. No complete calculation yet.

Any am please as pinch with it, small yet perfectly formed, strong yet light and apprantley fully water proof without the need for a cover.( that will be tested soon)

Anyway a picture for you all.

Managed to get to a massive camping shop as well today, not enough time to buy but heading back there later next week and have my eyes on a number of things!!! Update separately!!!

Anyway back to my beer and sea world now, non stop!!!

It's a tough job!!

While my Freind is trying as hard as he can to copy me, I am yet again working hard.

I have has to fly to Florida to practice some sand driving, Daytona beach and in a 4 x 4, but sand driving all the same. I have also had to spend some time lying by the pool topping up my tan so as not to burn.

Just off to look at camping shops and motorbike outlook stores to finish buying equipment.

The hardship never ends.

Yes a Yamaha Tenere 660.
I collected the Tenere 660 last weekend (suffering from a severe hangover) , and have finally had my first proper look at it today. Plenty of Touratech protection items , HID and fog light , Headlight protector , wide footrests etc.

Ordered Kriga Adventure 60 packs for both mine and Justins bikes and these have arrived complete with Fuel and Water cannisters. Not fitted yet so pictures to follow. Ordered single Titanium exhaust , so beginning to sort things out now as only 4 months until we are off! Cant Wait Now!
