i'm surprised that the muffler and tank assy has so much room between each other.. yes.. i understand heat transfer, but the COG of the bike could have been much lower if the rear tanks were made thinner and 'lower'... again.. bench racing... but it is obvious that HRC has something behind the curtain... evidence the quick release mechanism at the top of the tanks...
but.. i ain't saying nuttin about nuttin... 'cept honda kick ass in the dakar!!!!
