    Appreciate the kind words folks.

    To be fair (and honest) I learned a huge amount through this project and it has all pushed me forward. If I could do it again, it would be different (and better) but also simpler.

    Work did in fact go Nuclear as of Monday. It's very intense and moving very fast. My time for things beyond day job and family over the next few weeks will be minimal and my patience tested daily. It's all very good, but only if we line the ducks up in the right row and do it right now. It is in fact the pathway to things DMG, Mazak and more.

      Ok, now that I had time to reflect I want to share some major concerns about this product experience, I mean MAJOR!

      First of all I just noticed that WWR logo is on the INSIDE of the tank mount and UPSIDE DOWN! This is unacceptable! I will be laughed out of any Café Bespoke Custom Builder Starbucks gathering event, I mean DOH! Can't you read bruh? No amount of muffler tape can compensate for that fatal flaw.

      Another issue, and that may be the killer of it all, it may be the one flaw that will be the undoing of the whole universe, one thing that kills the joy of motorcycling, I mean it's so bad I'm considering legal action!

      It's the warning label...

      There I was loving life and motorcycles, the culture, the freedom and fresh air, and now I'm never gonna be able to look at my motorcycle again without fear... I will never be able to roll up to Charbucks and carelessly kick the kickstand down on my classic/vintage Café racer while catching for any single babe out of the corner of my eye through the lens of my cool as ice Café helmet.
      Never...
      You and your careless application of warning label killed the joy of motorcycling for me...
      I may have to find a new hobby, like growing a beard and knitting lumberJack hats...
      I need to go hide, just a thought of my prior engagement in this reckless and dangerous hobby makes my skin crawl
      I need therapy...
      I need a Latté, skim of course....

        Haha...yeah, it's upside down, or maybe it's just right when you lean over the bike and look for your petcock, not sure. Can't find cheap slave labor kids to do anything right anymore! That hard black anodizing is hell on diamond engravers, didn't machine the logo into much of the Type III stuff.

                    Those mount between the two side panels of the subframe, how you gonna crush 'em there?

                      Torque them from the side. Pressure from the leg driving into the side of the tank as you leverage up from the ball of your foot.

                        Okay, gotcha. In that case, triangulate them to the rest of the subframe.

                            Hanging off the tank may be more than these can handle, and if so, you and I will come up with a solution

                              Updated payment/shipping status (Page 15 of this thread, It's probably becoming clear as mud now).
