Pics are a good start. Would need to see it in person and measure things to know for sure. Throw some pics up here if you can.

Excellent solution! Please sign me up. Zega Pro Panniers...Thanks. BTW Touratech informed me this week that they have no plans to make a large tank for the 2013 F800/F700GS at this time...

"Thanks for the question. Touratech-USA is not aware of any plans to produce a large tank for the 2013+ F800/F700GS at this time".

And I think they never will since they announced the 8GSA, their big tank is about as much as the price difference between getting a normal 8GS and the GSA. They make crazy useless stuff but aren't stupid

Yep. Cracks me up! Bought my 2013 last month thinking I'll put the big tank on it then as soon a Touratech tell me there's no plans for one I'm thinking that BMW must have something in the pipeline...sure enough 3 days later here comes the 'Adventure'... Oh well. Love the bike and this fuel solution

Great work on this tank Oso Blanco!

I like that you are adding enough range for 99.9% of all rides, while not increasing weight much or adding any additional bulk.

The perfect alternative to make a GSA equivalent bike for those that already have a GS.

Since you'd be paying the shipping and duties, I don't see any reason why we can't

Do you know if the tank fits with the "Happy Trails" bags and mounts?
I may be able to send a picture if that helps.
Thanks!

Regarding of how expensive the shipping costs are going to be we can maybe share them. Where do you live in Switzerland?
