No easy place for a tool tube.

Here's my solution to not having any place convenient to mount the tool tube. Got some help from a rainy day and my friend Mr. Bud Lite.

Some Iron Butters have installed a spare gas tank like that. Not a bad application!

Thank you. I'd be a little afraid of hanging fuel there but I'm OK with chain lube and tools.

I fitted a much smaller one to mine, we have smaller plates here in OZ.

It has my puncher plug kit in it.

No that's a genuine Pelican case the 1120. I was afraid of the Harbor Freight unit not being up to the task and their smallest one was larger than this Pelican.

My Plate is actually a bit smaller. That's a sticker that I placed over it for all the obvious reasons. Puncher = tire plug kit?

On my G650GS BMW I hung the tool tube from the bottom of the left saddle bag. Not ideal but it works.
