This was my solution. Ordered a custom racing stripe vinyl to match what's on the tank.

Spartan - that might even save you a ticket or two! ;D

Jonesin - have you got that tank working properly?  The size of it - you could have used a beer keg! ;D

Just two final things I'll be adding the next rain day:
1. A one way valve to keep fuel from movving to the secondary tank riding uphill. 
2. A ball valve to shut fuel off when I want to remove the tank for a passenger.

And Norm... that just promotes drinking and riding. ;)

That would be one WILD ride if you drank a keg of gasoline.......  And definitely your last.
