Or post their e-mail address here and see what happens....

... and tell them to start selling the 12” long x 4 ¼” Diameter “OPERATOR'S MANUAL CANISTER”….

Let them know they would sell in HUGE numbers – just like the smaller one.

Going to order a set. I've been wanting to find a way to store rain gear for me and OL. Going to mount them on the saddlebag guards that go around the bags on Harley Ultra. Could probably mount them on the rear engine guard, but I got bags there already.

Great idea guys.

Just used some 3 inch PVC drain pipe with two clean outs on the end. One trip to Lowes for less than 20 bucks. Stores my beadbrakr, tire irons, and various other tools.

Pete O Static, now that you've had that on for awhile how is it holding up to the heat being so close to the header?

Bought a couple for putting rain gear in, but not big enough, not even one piece per tube. Could probably get them in you really tried in your living room, but not as easy on the road.

I'll probably put mine on my ATV.

I have had no heat issues at all. The only thing that was ever a concern was hitting the fender on full fork compression when pushing hard off road. The stock suspension would bottom out and hit against the tube sometimes. I have since put in slightly stiffer springs and a heavier fork oil ( which was on my to do list anyway ) and now no longer fully compress the front end against the stops. This was only ever an issue with the stock suspension in really lumpy terrain.

Just out of interest, has anyone used a BDH (cylindrical plastic medical waste container) as a tool tube? I think they'd work quite well.
