Safari Tanks – tested tough!

Have you ever wondered how tough your Safari Tank really is?

Well, Darwin’s Adrian Gunter did some unofficial tank testing on a recent trip at top end.

When the trailer towing Adrian’s Suzuki DR650 rolled on a gravel road in the top end, his bike was dragged 80 metres down the road.

Naturally, he feared that his bike, let alone the tank, would be destroyed.

But amazingly, both survived. The Safari Tank was a little scratched, but it was unaffected and is still in use today.

It’s the kind of testing we’d never considered.
