Good point about the weight... hadn't considered that.
Where would you put stuff...? It's the same issue regardless of where the aux tank sits. Where do you put the passenger if the tank is taking up the passenger seat? etc.
A well designed "aux tank bag" could very likely address all the other issues... quick disconnect (half turn & lock; obviously it would have to be empty or easily drainable) so that body panel service is simple, shaped so you don't have to worry about "the boys", and with side pockets so you can throw in small things (wallet, phone, etc). But not much you can do about the weight, and I agree that would kill the concept.
Thanks for the input!
