Nomad 8.5L pillion seat fuel tank

These have just come onto the market from Nomad Fuel Tanks, it replaces the passenger seat, very happy one I just purchased and installed and now no longer have to carry a extra 6.6 litres of fuel in a Rotopak on my racks as It plumbs into the main tank full time. Easy to install and remove as they come with quick disconnect fitting if you need to remove the tank and put the passenger seat back on.

Sounds good, especially the quick removal feature. And 8.5L is close to, what, a 50% increase? Very useful.
I can't see it on their website yet, but I suppose it will get there eventually.

That's a really clever idea for extra fuel - very slick.

This looks like a great option.
Why won’t Nomad list the tank, it seems like they don’t want people to know about it??

No rack required

Might end up slightly cheaper even after shipping from Australia as well. Nice.

I'd love to install this thing, but I think with it my Mosko Reckless 80 wouldn't fit well on top !
