I ordered this tank chap, or tuxedo as they call it, because I needed somewhere convenient to stick my gloves in, instead of my saddlebags. This fit the bill perfectly! It has a soft cloth backing so it doesn't mark up the tank, and the braided boarder is subtle but classy looking without too much fussiness, so it all ties right in with the retro look of my bike. And an added bonus is the pouch is detachable! It looks great on my 2008 Honda VT750C Shadow Aero. It took my husband and I less than 10 minutes to install it. I didn't even have to use the Velcro as the gauge housing holds the top down and the seat holds the bottom down. I couldn't be more pleased with Dennis Kirk who shipped it out the same day I ordered it and you can't beat their prices!
