Good thoughts on the matter. I am looking forward to your article. Are you going to address the quest for more speed (above 45mph)in your article?
After reading your post I can now ride my top tank bike without the thought of it being a motorcycle wanta-be. Never thought too much about the great gain in range that a top tank would give. Seems like a great plus for a distance rider, or for someone who rides a lot and does not want to stop too often for gass.
