Sending 10-20 to one location in the US would be a LOT cheaper than sending them individually to each interested party. They could then be shipped ups or whatever if someone was willing to be the re-shipper.
This weekend you´ll get pictures of the ready tank in my bike. I hope the weather is fine, than I can make the first tour.

Just got some stuff from Touratech Germany, posted with "Businesspaket" 65,20 Euro for 5,7kg's took two weeks so a good option for me in South Africa.

Very nice work Markus. Super.

What are you using for a pump? You mentioned a "pump controller". Are you using a solenoid piston pump?

Beautiful!

Marcus: Are the passenger pegs required or optional with the tank? I've very impressed with the final product......Bruce

Markus,
Looks sweet. IMHO, much better than the HPN which doesnt have an OEM appearance. I like the original lines of the stock tank.

December

Markus, I sent you a PM. I will be in Stuttgart and Munchen in late December. If things go a little slower then planned and you still need to get three tanks to the US for trial, I could hand carry them back with me. I of course would have to be one of the testers .

If not, then I would definitely like to buy one of your fine products while I am there.
