Hey these look beautiful! If you need testers I run my bike pretty hard off road! Lol. Looking forward to further development!

ohhh it sounds harsh as i would cut it. I think the idea is brilliant to enhance the bike and use every corner availeble. I just need room instead. Great work.

I'm totally interested too! I would use it as a reserve. I'd fill the main tanks and under seat tank, and keep the under seat tank's petcock closed, mainly relying on the main tanks, and pretend that I don't have any more fuel than what is in the main tanks. If I get into a situation where I miscalculated and need to extra fuel I'd flip the petcock open and my ass will be saved.

Same as above Rade. Great work and very rapid prototyping. I'm stoked to see it turned out so well, and I'm very interested in the final product.

Im with you on this Mikael. Perfect if it doesnt rub the wheel - but that should be pretty hard with 320mm
