I nearly bought one some time ago, but when do you stop yourself adding accessories.

They look nice enough and cheap to buy too, but not sure if it would mark the tank either from any rubbing or from the sticky tape that is used to mount it.

My bike is nearly two years old and I don't have any scratches or dinks, but if your a bit clumsy maybe a worthwhile item.

I am seriously thinking about one, my bike is only two months old and already someone (F****** lowlife) scratched my tank, another option is a leather tank cover I have seen, I have managed to track the maker of these covers but till now, he hasn't answered to my messages!!

Anything that has contact with the paint will eventually start rubbing, and thus screwing up the paint job.
And whatever you place against the tank, even if it's the softest thing ever, with time, dirt and dust will make it's way behind it either way, and thus acting as sandpaper..

Sticky tape is the only way they attach?
