This is the most common question we receive about the tank vest. The short answer: It depends on many variables. Here's the longer answer. Tank vests are form-fit for stability, as a heavy load that shifts unexpectedly while the bike is moving is not safe for the rider. Each tank vest pattern will vary widely based on the bike's manufacturer, model, year, OEM versus aftermarket fuel tank, etc. We can't afford to purchase or even rent one of every manufacturer, model, year, etc. of every motorcycle ever made so we can pattern the factory tank for a tank vest, never mind all of the aftermarket fuel tanks available. If we could, we wouldn't be running this business, we'd be catching rays on a warm sunny beach somewhere we could ride year-round! Instead, we rely on the generosity of riders near Winchester, VA who are willing to loan us their personal bikes while we pattern them. We do not ride the loaner to test the tank vest, we have the owner do it and give us feedback. We also have the owner do off-road test rides if appropriate, and then we make any needed design adjustments. In exchange for the loan and help with feedback, the owner gets a free tank vest. Since we're borrowing bikes owned by others, we have to take what we can get. We prioritize bikes to pattern based on the number of requests we receive. If you have a really rare bike then it's not likely we'll be patterning it since it's just not available.
