Like Vulcanader said, sometimes it is out of necessity. The previous owner of my Nomad made a mess of the top of the tank between the pin stripes.
I ordered this one a little while ago http://www.moto24.co.uk/hepco-becker-tankcover-buffalo-kawasaki-vn-1700-classic.html Found it in the 1700 gear thread.
At $227 shipped it is a good bit higher but still a good bit less than half what it would cost to paint and re-stripe to original color.
They haven't arrived yet. When they do I will post a 1st impression here.Hey TS Tinker,
It's hard to tell by looking at the picture, but how do these pouches close. Is it a snap or something?
Very hard to swallow but I have been looking for one that shape to cover some paint imperfections for a long time.Considering that I paid $35 for a leather bib with storage for the mean streak, $200 is a little hard to swallow. I've bought some nice leather jackets for $200. Does look good though.
I like the woven edge much betterI received mine today and I was so impressed with it, I just had to call Frank personally and let him know.

I'm not a big 'studs' guy so this is just what I wanted for a nice clean and slick look. The fit is perfect and hugs each edge as if it was straight from the dealer. It's true, you get what you pay for.
