The IBA requires everyone to stop every 350 miles and I can't think of anywhere that requires a 450+ mile range, PLUS the 25 additional pounds weight which will be much higher than the stock tank, thus probably adversely effecting handling.

Yea, you can be the only one on your block foolish enough to buy one, but it isn't cool IMHO
german page is euro, uk page is punds sterling. funny enought the price in sterling ismore expensive and then with excahnge rate means it is even more expensicve if buy fromthe main germantouratech shop.

i find that extra large tank is a great idea and well worth the effort, but for the cost of over 1.5k, i would prefer to buy 2 20 euro fuelcansand spend the remaining1,460 euro onmy bike or my trip.

but it is a nice looking tank.

weird why they so dear when RV Aqualine make similar tank for the kt 690 enduro and its half the price i believe
