We all love to get out and ride,and those of us with kids enjoy nothing more than them riding along and enjoying what we love. Here is a video of last weekend with a bunch of mates that I normally ride with on adventures, only this time we all brought the kids along for a weekend camping and ridng. Nothing but smiles on all faces.

Thats a pretty good video , hills never look as steep on video or photos . Maybe its just the video , but the front end on the DRZ looks to be jumping a bit from side to side , have you noticed that Sricko or is it the video ..

Theres plenty of rocks and tree roots bumping it around as well as me giving it plenty and keeping the front end up;) new rear knobbies also kept biting in. All in all it was a hoot !!

What do you think of the big tanks? i noticed when i fill my 21 ltr Safari she is a hand full on the back wheel and likes to sway with out any baffels in the tank. I ended up only putting 12>15 ltrs in at a time when i use that.

Love the 17lt tank - Actually feels narrower than the stock 10 with shrouds. When i ride places that Im not going to need a full tank I ususally only fill it up just over the frame hump, never really had any issue with the sway that way and its balanced quite well. When I do fill it to the lid ( which equals 21lt) it can be a pig and feel top heavy but that doesnt last long once you start burning it off as it is usually only that full when touring.
