Classic. I was wondering if they were suddenly flying off the shelves.

Mine arrived this morning.

Me: "Mam, I don't own a tractor, I just need the tube".

Tractor lady: "Why is everybody buying them tractor manual containers if they don't own equipment?"

If finally explained that somebody posted a link on a motorcycle forum, and everybody thought those tubes would come in handy for storing tools. Just hope they don't raise prices now...
Same sitch here... I ordered on Sunday and got three calls and an email from a sweet southern lady, Beatrice, that there was an issue with my card... I fooked up and gave my wrong billing address for the card... They were more than sweet following up with me, and another person even called my cell once the problem was fixed just to check up.... These fookers should really get into the moto bizness!

Head to your local Ace Hardware.. The ones near me have a number of various sized P clamps.

They aren't stainless but they do the trick.

I found these at Home Depot in the Electrical dept. They're about $5.00 each.
It's a Pipe Grounding clamp. It takes paint well and won't budge.
