How Does a Motorcycle Work?

Gas Tank

  • Motorcycle gas tanks may be real or imagined. On the Harley, the tank is real and functional. On some bikes, the tank is there for appearance and tradition while the real tank hides beneath the skin of the bike somewhere to fill up unused space and provide for a better center of gravity.
  • Gas tanks can be quite small or quite large. Long distance riders will often have auxiliary tanks so they won't have to stop as often. Often the tank serves a purpose by holding a Tank Bag that provides additional storage or a place to display a map.
