If the bike is tipped over or crashed and the tank gets cracked or the valve breaks off, what are some of the safety concerns for having a air tank strapped so close to a person. Don't want a Wild E Coyote incident happening with the tank. I have hear of large high pressure tanks falling over and the valve breaking and the tank getting shot through cinder block wall and wrecking cars in the parking lot. Old retired dude told me that story.
