Motorcycle gas tanks are the first thing you notice on a bike, right?
Of course, there are already plenty of other cool features on a motorcycle.
You want to check out the motor, the exhaust system, the shocks, the bars…
There’s a lot going on.
And because I’ve been riding on the back of bikes for 30 years, I always take a second look at a motorcycle’s passenger seat, too.
There’s wonderful distraction everywhere.
But I have to say for me, motorcycle tanks are the Main Event.
Motorcycle gas tanks are often the focal point of a bike. They’re the boldest statement of a motorcycle’s identity, and unique style. When sunlight bounces off a chrome motorcycle tank, you squint happily. The strong colors are a work of art on two wheels. And some tank badges are as beautiful as a piece of jewellery.
Maybe I should go see a therapist about my obsession with motorcycle gas tanks.
Come to think about it, talking about them for hours in group therapy would be a lot of fun.
But in the meantime, here’s a peek at some of my favorite motorcycle gas tanks.
