cant down size photo i have i sent it to buddy post for me.
Use photobucket, simply copy the img tag in photobucket and paste it here in your post. Just hit enter between each img tag here in your post, this way the pics run vertically and not horizontally. It's really that easy.

On longer trips, I bungee a craftsman tool bag with almost everything I could need onto the handlebars. It's often stayed on for a month or more afterwards while I just ride around.

I've been meaning to get Xian to make me a leather replacement, but it's just not super high on my priority list.

I've done similar, I have an old canvas army duffel bag, I just chuck a shit ton of tools and odds and ends in there, and bungee it to the front of my bars , ontop of the light. Only on longer trips or if Im heading far out of the city..... has paid for itself a few times on my own and others bikes.

Seen these motion pro tool kits yet? I have one on my daily and toss it in my back pocket whenever I'm out on a shakedown on a customer bike along with the Knipex 7" plier wrench. With that tool kit and those pliers, there isn't much you can't take apart...click pics for links.

Seriously though, if you haven't used those knipex plier-wrenches before, drop the cash and get your hands on one. It is probably the most used single tool in my shop. Same over at my friend's indie v-twin shop...he's got 4 of each size haha. Basically an adjustable wrench that has a 10:1 force multiplying handles to squeeze them shut. Harder you push, tighter it gets.

Hahaha part of my tool kit is in my wallet. Roadside assistance is too cheap to pass up. At least it can get you to the nearest town for anything you might need. And working on a bike in a parking lot is better than on the side of the highway.

I carry a basic kit whenever I take a trip. I hang a military butt pack off the left side of my bike. Vise grips, zip ties, electrical tape, wire cutters, couple different screwdrivers, this multi wrench thing I have, etc..

Now I've gotta knock on wood because I haven't had to use any of it besides zip ties and tape for the longest time.

One obvious benefit of the bagger, tools, rain gear, leather jacket, change of clothes, toothbrush - good to go any distance on a moments notice. Granted the bags are not aesthetically pleasing in most cases, but damn handy!
