Careful with the magnetic bags - they tend to scratch up the clear pretty easy unless you always keep them clean (or put something between the magnets and the tank.

Just from experience, at least...
There's a real simple test for "does my bike have soul": when you're on it do you feel like Sigurd hitting mach III on Fafnir's back while you decapitate pedestrians with Gram and plunge into a spinning color vortex of lust-hate-fear-madness as you leap the Himalayas? If so, you have found your mount. If not... the quest may be long, indeed. Embrace the inevitable - Scrannel
