Have you 111.111 km (69.041 miles) or is it just a display failure ?

This pic was about a week before I left Vancouver last September for two years plus away, way too clean. Pretty much exactly as it is today but with a larger GL tank bag, the total gear is about 110 litres. In a couple of weeks 2 one gallon Rotopax cells go on for S.A. for a total of 30 litres of gas plus or minus. The bike is way better than me.

I did a quick search on the forum and Google as well - is there any US source for HPN parts in the US? Specifically looking for the tank or tank and oil cooler combo. The only thing I come up with is the link to their website in Germany.

Just locked up a NICE HP2 for myself and am excited about getting it ready for a trip - any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Congrats on the new stead. I was thinking of selling mine- so glad I don't have to now.

Head up to the European section and see if you can get a US service member to act as a proxy to ship items. Look into the Markus tank as well, he's in Garmisch/Partinkirchen.

Talk to Bobby at BMW of Atlanta for HPN; MAX BMW; and there was a tank for sale in the flea market here a little while back.

Congrats on the ride. Pics??

How much time have you got to set it up?

If you end up ordering thru Holan (Poland), I ordered mine on 20 Mar and rec'd it on 5 April. Not bad for half way around the globe with Easter in the middle. Even better when you consider HPN took 1 week to supply the tank to Holan.

I did notice the TT tank is no longer on their webpage.

Holan or Markus tank for me then.
