Anyone else like to see future models of the 120 to have a tank rack?

Had Triumphs in the 70's some with racks on the tanks, I would like the tanks to have threaded inserts set in the top so that these racks could be fitted, or even come as standard.

If the tanks weren't so expensive would be tempted to buy one and drill four holes and braze in sleeves with top hats.

I've seen the suction cups ones, can't see them staying in place.

Used to have a pair of leggins rolled up and strapped to the tank back in the day.

Never thought it would be a safety issue.

It'll be a safety issue when yer nuts get caught on the rack by a sudden stop and sliding up the tank. Seen it happened in the 60's once or twice with extensive bruising on the inner thighs. I'd stick with a suction one if you want the look, but there not my jewels to comment on...lol....personally I think they look great.
