    I'm hopeless at wheelies, but I ordered the tank several weeks ago. I just can't wait to start popping. :thumb

    He also makes two additional statements:

    "Due to the manufacturing issues we are expecting to be delayed at least 3 weeks or more, we will keep you all posted as we find out more."

    and

    "On a separate note, we want to let everyone know that we are unable to comment on every forum to answer peoples questions. There are far to many forums and we are occupied trying to get the tank to market. If you have questions please address them on this website by commenting at the bottom of these posts or by sending us an email and we will get back to you ASAP!"

    So send your questions to his website if you expect a response right away or at all.

    Hey, guys! I got my XRange tank today! Woo-hoo!<o:p></o:p> <!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> <!--[endif]-->

    The workmanship is terrific. It's gorgeous! I fitted it up to the bike and had it installed in 5 minutes. Looks fantastic. Very sturdy and the mounting system looks bulletproof.<o:p></o:p>
    <!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> <!--[endif]--><o:p></o:p>
    Then I put on my Hepco-Becker racks and re-fitted the tank. Took a couple of extra minutes, but it’s perfect as far as I can tell.<o:p></o:p>
    <!--[if !supportEmptyParas]--> <!--[endif]--><o:p></o:p>
    Wow! I’m so happy!<o:p></o:p>:rofl

    With a post like that and considering the lynch mob attitude on this thread, your playing with fire. :gun2

    But I asked for black and got orange! And the molding appears backwards as it only fits on the left side but luckily with my new Leo Vince installed there is a .025" clearance between the pipe and the tank so I'll just throw on some heatproof tape onto the outside of the tank. Or maybe I'll just buy the Camelback hose and use it for having hot tea as I ride - seems to fit the image I always had of BMW riders anyhow (until I became one too).

    :wink: I love this holiday (also my sister's birthday, poor FOOL that she is). nice one Drone!

    ....rkhhh..... cough, cough. <wiping drool off my chin>

    Did someone say something? No....? OK
    I just had a dream about a grand new tank here.
    Oh well, maybe some day....

    But now that I'm awake, I do have a question.
    Has anyone of you EVER got any email updates from XRange?
    I mean, we signed up to get the emails, verified the email address and many of even sent them chunk of money.

    Thrugh all this time I haven't got one single email update. Shit like that should be pretty easy to do, just shoot an update to everyone who has registered or pre-ordered.

    They did that years ago. They don't even bring the xCountry to the US anymore.

    I've tried making contact a number of times with X-Range.
    Seems the reply button on their email account is broke and comments option on their http://xrange.ca/ site is broken too.

    Starting any new business is difficult and reading these threads and seeing the obvious effort into progressing this tank from dream to prototype is HUGE.
    It would be a shame for this to fall over on the last hurdle.

    Please Muckpee put us out of our misery - the suspense is killing me!
    A little communication goes a long way.

    Regards, Adam :)
