    Rear storage

    Afternoon peeps
    Just wondering if anyone has thought of a solution for a small storage area under the top box tray just above the number plate , would be quite nice to have a lockable area without having to have topbox on to carry a couple of things like toolbox , puncture repair kit, etc
    Something like this would be very cool

    I’m guessing by all the responses that no one else has this issue  :001: :008:
    Come up with a solution using one of my old bags, not perfect but will do until i find something

    I actually agree with this. I either use a top box if I need a load of stuff or a tailpack if I just going on a day trip to carry puncture repair kit, bottle of water etc. But tailbacks, tanks bags aren’t that secure. You can carry them with you but  Often thought I could do with a small lockable box that would attach to the plate. I know givi do a smaller box called “weightless” but it’s still too big.

    Plenty of little spaces if you look. Mini compressor, puncture repair kit with some basic tools and a multi tool under seat.
    More tools in a little bag under side fairing.
    2 Wunderlich fairing bags for your makeup
    Under rear rack bag from Klim (had to make some brackets from scrap material lying around) for 1st aid kit.

    +1 on the side fairing spots, I usually carry an entire bicycle pump in there for topping up or emergencies  :008: That said last time i had a puncture a week or so ago i didn't have it with me of course...

    That last picture is sacrilege though, you should be ashamed  :013:

    Wolf Racing used to make an under-rack bag for the GS which I thought might fit, but they no longer make it.  It did give me the idea so I had a custom made bag made up.





    Contact Colin at Bagworld Redditch.  The only improvement I would make to it, is to have it more rigid.

    I don't miss the UK for the "secure" thing: just did a 3300mile trip over 12 days here and no-one, literally no-one, touches your bike or gear, people leave helmets and jackets on them for hours at places like the National Parks. I did like bumping my insurance to fully comp for the trip though, for the grand sum of $12...
