I was thinking of doing the exact same thing except as a tool box / misc storage instead of a fuel tank. The only things I wouldn't want to put in soft luggage are spare parts that I'd need on a long trip (oil or air filters, or anything else easily crushable) They could go in a big tool box under the seat. I was thinking of laying it up in fiberglass or carbon fiber, but the aluminum tank looks pretty nice too. I'm also moving my battery forward under the tank (I think), so a tool box could also occupy the normal battery location.
