The "under the seat tank" is nothing new.
The F650GS/Dakar have had it since the year 2000.
People like Worldrider have been riding these bikes hard
without any problems (from the tank).
It's just something different when compared to most bikes and IMHO a good thing that keeps the CG down.
I've ridden several Single Cylinder F650GS (with and without panniers) and never had problems filling the tank. The correct way to do it (on this type of bikes) is on the side stand... You can always roll the bike a couple of yards after refueling, put her on the center stand and then go about lubbing the chain.
