  • We all have lots of time to think while setting astride the steel beast and traveling down the highway. I've always had trouble with carrying tools with me on long trips on my bike. One day it dawned on me the simplest way to cure this problem. I went down to the local hardware store and bought me a piece of 4" PVC pipe and cut it into two lengths of 6" each. I also bought two bottom caps and two top caps with screw in heads. Taking the 6" long piece of pipe, I placed the bottom end on with PVC glue and the top end on the same way. Screwed in the head and there, I had me a perfect tool kit (and water proof) and holds all sorts of tools. You will be surprised at how much stuff you can pack into one of these canisters. Make two of them and put one in each saddle bag. Sure cured my tool problem.  :happy:
    Most of the things I've discovered in life, I found while I was looking for something else.

  • That is a great tip. 8)
    My tools have been all over  inside the saddle bags, and I feel bad every time I look for a tool.
    I have to visit my local Home depot soon. :)
