How do you get your BMW tank bag off to fuel?

I got the massive BMW tank bag with my 2005 GS. And that thing is a real b****h to remove every time I fuel up. I must be missing something obvious here. Surely it was not designed that badly?

Special tool required for lower crash bar bracket/frame bolt?

How do you tighten the lower crash bar bracket bolt (the one that goes into the engine)? The bracket has a hole but its not big enough to get a torx socket through.

Where do you live that you need three locks on the bike? Get a shotgun - ammo is cheap.
