I haven't looked at BMW tool kit included with the bikes but I'm pretty sure everything required to mount the tank (other than a drill and bit) will be in there

Saw the Tank last week and it looks awesome in person. Cory's really put the time in designing this to work and at a great price too...

Once the current model is well on it's way, I'll be looking at other options and numbers. I'll definitely post up to keep everyone in the loop.

Great job! I remember you talking about this a while ago, great to see you got it done, and done beautifully... I expected nothing less!

If I still had a GS this would be the perfect addition to make it a viable long distance adventure bike, the other options didn't work well for me either.

think this could be made to fit a G650GS? similar shape back there...

Bravo!

It looks pretty good, looks like my Giant Loop Siskiyou panniers are on the list but do you mean they could work without a rack? Can those bolts support the tank by itself?

If so for next year you will have another customer :)

Nice invention for the twins, i would love to have an extra red gallon hanging from the pannier, but yours looks great.

I haven't seen you around these parts for awhile. Looks like you've got a nice bike tour gig going I haven't looked at the 650 single yet but I have lots of ideas to explore once this project is up and running.

I'm hoping to be down your way this winter. We'll have to hook up for a ride.

"Can those bolt support the tank by itself?" I'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean. The tank is mounted at the front with the 2 threaded inserts under the seat and a big beefy bracket at the back. There is no issue with the Siskiyou panniers resting against the tank. I did a test fit on an F800GS in the Giant Loop vendor booth at the Desert 100 race a few weeks ago. The exhaust supports the left pannier and our tank supports the right pannier.

Two measly US gallons or two of Her Majesty's good 'n' proper imperial gallons?

want one

If I post saying I want one and am ready to buy will it speed the process up.
Really, I am leaving for a trip on 6/8 and would love to have this on the bike. If not I will have to get 2x red tanks hanging off my bike. Would love to not buy the red tanks and then when I get back from my trip yours is ready.
Do you have an estmate for price and when is the earliest I could get one?

I have not seen anyone ask the questions, are they compatable with the Happy trails racks? We do not use the two threaded holes under the subframe, but could there be any issues with clearance on the width?

If you do the calculation it means around the 22th of may / first week of juin

I don't wear glasses (maybe that is the problem)

I did see that but it was over a month ago so eager me was hoping with a post I could get some new and improved updated updates. I never was one for patience.

Supper excited.

I understand you so badly.. This Tank looks just too awesome and is finally a real alternative to the TT one and to the one that attaches on your rear rack. I'm so exited for my first 500kms run
