I picked up a transparent tank cover from a now defunct company called Tank Slapper. It's a polymer of some kind that is attached by spraying a mixture of water and vinegar on the tank and then using a small squeegee to push out the air bubbles so it has a liquid seal. It's transparent, and you really have to look at it closely to even see it on the tank.
From what I can see, there are a bunch of companies making similar products out of 3M Scotchcal material, often described as paint protectors. That's the best way to protect your tank, and my set was under $25 Cdn including shipping.
Every bike is a good bike. The question is whether or not it's the best bike for what you want to do.
The Little Sport Tourer That Could - 2011 CBR250R with touring windscreen, Saddlemen seat, tank cover, frame sliders, mirror extenders, taller gearing via sprockets to fix speedo and reduce vibration at highway speed. Written off due to act of moron.
