Quick question, do you have to remove that tank bag in order to gas up?

The bag doesn't cover the gas caps. There is a gas cap on each side, the middle is just a small storage box and fuse access.

Good looking bike. One question though, I see that you have Akra Evos and live in a woody country. Do you have spark arrestors? Because I think Evos dont have it.

Thanks - I used the 2010 SMC fender - fits perfect and has a black/white color scheme that suits the bike well. Fork guards are produced by tactical application of a band saw and sander to the original low fender...
