What do you use to get the burnt rubber off of the can?

I don't have a bucket list, I have a post-bucket list. So far it includes
1) Coroner's report is to read "Death by misadventure."
2) Dixieland jazz band at my funeral.

I remember seeing some of these on a bicycling forum, cat litter bucket panniers:



I am thinking about building a set for my KLX to hang off my cycleracks just because I have the buckets already and the hardware wouldn't cost much. I'd be doing this more because I can, than because I need them.

Built a shelf for my 2011 Versys that houses my GPS and Spot and a couple of Powerlet sockets. Attaches with 3M Dual Lock - removed when not on a long haul. Just did a 1500 and a 5600 mile long haul and it worked as planned.

I'll get around to painting or plasti-dipping the brackets eventually but right now it's summer and the bike is garaged so I'm not really worried about rust yet.

Pardon the long winded post, hope you enjoyed!

It's this one to be specific:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Stearns-Bl...Cover/10727537

It's not GREAT but way WAY better than the stock seat. Most people that aren't cheap like me send their seats to this guy:

My Apologies to Giant Loop and Nomad Rider

I ride a KLR and to strap a $400 luggage systems to my bike would break the fundamental KLR code of frugalness:

I almost went with a milk crate but I found a $5 dollar bill that was blowing around in the parking lot so I created the:

NewnerLoop!!!!

Ingrediants:

(1) One old pair of coveralls found in the trunk of my car.

(2) 3 buckles and some strapping from WalMart

(3) Some skill and expertise from my Mother who already fixed a hole on then leg of my coveralls years ago


ENJOY












Also: Before you guys tell me how awful it looks.... this is just the 1st one and I plan on dyeing black.
Furthermore, for you guys who are going to freak about water proofing, I can probably go back to Walmart and pick some rain pants that would cover the whole system.

Confirmed, the box was given to me. I cannot afford DeWalt either.
