Can someone else confirm this please?
My mechanic has had the tank off my Valkyrie and I've only just noticed this daylight between tank and frame (you have to get down at that level to see it). Can someone else just confirm this is standard please?
On another note, this "magic sponge" product (melamine sponge) is awesome for cleaning bugs off your bike without chemicals. Well, not strictly true because the sponge obviously is the chemical - ie you use a little square of it and it actually kinda dissolves as you use it. Works a treat and very cheap - a packet was about AUD$2.50 at the Daiso shop (cheap Japanese products).
On an even 'nother note, I just read Melissa Holbrook Pierson's "The Man Who Would Stop At Nothing", the story of John Ryan, mega-long distance rider. Highly recommended. It's about John but it's really also about you and me and all of us who ride and why we have such a passion for it. On the strength of that book I've bought her other motorcycle tome: "The Perfect Vehicle". Good writer.
