Few useful items on my V

I have finished today to add few items that could make more space in luggage boxes. In one of these bottles will be lubricating chain spray in other one tyre spray.








Also I have made longer arm for my iPad minni and now it not obstruct view on a dash board and also could use iPad for taking movies when traveling. There is one more advantage to use longer arm because of an viewing angle when iPad is used like GPS. (sunlight, shadows, etc...)

Scary! What do you carry in those boxes?

I put those "owners manual" containers under my tail section. I carry lube in one and tools in the other. Folks ask me why I have covers on my exhaust pipes. LOL!

Hello twowheeladdict, there is all tools I might need for the quick repairings, also sprockets and whole chain also chain repairing kit, miniature pump, repairing kit for the tires, pulling rope, few screws, etc,etc...

I had mine bottles in the same position like yours...







....but, because I have my wife behind me and lot (I mean A LOT!!! AVERAGE WEIGHT BIKE+US+LUGGAGE = 430 Kg ) of luggage, rear tire damaged bottles on one long trip.

Later on Ive got idea to make those aluminum boxes and bottles have find desired spot

I just got my tool tubes mounted up. I made brackets out of aluminum bar. Turned out pretty good I think. I'll post some pics when I get a chance.
Now I need to decide what to put in them.

Nothing's too cruel if it's funny enough.
