No deformities detected...

I am however, keeping a close watch on my 1090RR tank. I also have a Ducati with a plastic tank so I am hyper aware of this condition. I scoured this forum prior to buying my 1090RR and there were no reported incidents of tank deformity on any Brutale. There were a few on the F4's however. Maybe it is the shape / thickness of the tank that predisposes it to deformity when exposed to ethanol? i.e. the tank on my Streetfighter is very thin. I can squeeze it with my legs while riding and feel it deform. Not so with the Brutale.
