Not fuel tanks........

Just make sure (there's always a caveat, isn't there) that it'd be compatible with the major luggage players.

BTW, the bash plate looks kickass. Can't wait to see the crash bars.

Hey Nate,

This guy was asking about rally bashplates with tool boxes and water holders and i think i under-quoted badly as well.

I dont really want to get involved with making Aluminium tanks as ive seen them being a nightmare to keep sealed and generally expensive and unreliable. I'll look into it but its definately not high on the priority list.

Maybe ask you-know-who thats currently working on plastic roto-moulding tanks for another bike. I feel this may be the answer you need......

The main thing I'm into is going about on a bike, taking random routes; I'm really into the idea of making up journeys, and just seeing where they take you, because they always end up taking you someplace freaky.
