Only something very narrow as it would obscure the brake light.

No problem vanislejay. I just wanted to clarify. It doesn't hurt to have multiple options pictured for those in the future who stumble across such threads.

PerazziMx14 all that stuff except the pledge, plus the factory tools could easily fit under the seat on my vee. And really, I think the pledge could fit too, but it would be a bit inconvenient.

I agree. I had a Sargent seat on my DL650 that had a tool/tube built into it. Not sure why all manufacturers don't do this and also the space under the seat was like a cavern and being able to store tons of stuff. Especially in comparison to looking under the seat of an Italian bike. Lucky to have enough space to house your registration card
