    Agree Ronnie, if I had it to do over, I'd probably make the same decision. You know how it goes, I was younger back in 2012 and had visions of riding west of the MS river over those long west bound roads, blah, blah, and surprise, that never happened. Age has way of overtaking those grandeur thoughts of riding far and wide.

    Cheers, Bill

    Billy,

    It totally sucks getting old doesn't it?? [I just turned 69 last week] I also had "big dreams" of riding the entire USA.... BUT of course that never even came close to happening!

    Default Aux tank

I like their filler neck and I like the auto-shutoff feature on the setups for the Roadsmith trike kit, so I'd hope they use those items on the TG kit too. Bad part is- the TG has a solid axle, so it uses more room under the tub than their Roadsmith independent rear uses.

    So, a smaller tank. Even another 2.5 is better than carrying a separate gas can...

    I'm definitely setting up a reminder to call them back!
    Any word yet?

    Thanks

    Ronnie, yes, getting old does suck, but getting old and riding softens the "suck" factor some.

    Hi Ronnie - yes, we can retro-fit your trike with an auxiliary fuel tank (assuming you do not have the extended trunk option). It requires removing the seat, tour-box and trike body. The tank bolts into place, route some fuel lines, vent lines, and wiring. Put everything back on. Takes about 6hrs of time. Cost for the parts is $499. Let me know if we can help you out!

    Hi Ridernut - we have installed a couple tanks on TriGlides. Still working through the process, evaluating installation time, parts cost, and frankly, how much demand is out there. We just aren't certain at this time that we are going to go into production on the tank. Sorry to ask again, but please check back in a couple months.
