    Hello Muckpee!

    Thank you very much for the time you put into this. My little comments...

    For the brackets I think it's a must, as it's the only way to get out of the bike-specific problem and therefore, expand immensely your potential market.

    For the date of availability, as someone said, stick, stick to you date, and I would even add one or two more "stick"s.... Spring is arriving, ride projects are being made and fuel range is one of the main variables being considered. So... As time goes by, other solutions will be found by people if need be.

    I'm also following this thread almost daily and prepared to place an order as soon as you want!

    Regards,

    JF

    My guess is your sacrifice won't be needed since it is probably most cost effective for Muckpee to have the largest production run possible. Very nice of you however :clap

    Any chance of getting one sooner if I do not need a luggage bracket?

    I also have an end of March trip planned.

    Thanks for the updates.

    Muckpee--that new bracket for the front, is that going to be stainless, or powdercoated? Any reason you didn't want to go with aluminum?

    I have an April ride out west, so would be AWESOME to get this in March!!! Black, White or Translucent...I'm good either way (not blue though!)

    Had a chance to workout a solution for Touratech racks yet? Still looks like something could be "rigged up" to secure the fwd points (bands, clamps of some sort) but a more solid solution would be nice. Either way, looking forward to the final release!

    +1 I have a trip planned for the end of March. I'd be willing to pay the extra shipping.

    Thanks for the product.

    Muckpee - A better than 90% chance I'll order one as well but wondering if you've come up with alternate mounting option for the Touratech frame and similar since you asked who had other than stock. Looking forward to the official release regardless!

    Deposit made! It'll be nice not to stop for fuel every 120mi. :clap

    Thank you for making an affordable tank!
