    I like the tank on the rack better, but that's just me. I think it fits the contour of the bike better there. I think what it really boils down to is what YOU think looks/works the best? I would think either way would function just fine.

    you use the utility of the rack if the tank is there (but you probably already considered that).
  5. my 2 cents- if you paint the tank to match the bike- with the off white and red it would look great up front, otherwise I like it just fine on the back. Are you going to use the back tank with a rack on the top? So that you don't loose the use of the rack?

    if you could find a gas tank that would fit underneath the top bar, and on top of those smaller bars, that would be perfect.

    I like discreet gas tanks, so I think on the back is best.

    If you get that particular rack tank, you can still use paniers or trunks, since the tank actually goes under the rack.

    on the top bar, it just sticks out like a big zit.
