    Nice bags. I like the five point velcro mounts or is there another strap on the bottom? What do you carry or plan to carry in them?

    The left bag has a Slime air pump, plugs, patches and some other sundries. The right bag has a flashlight, zip ties, and some tools wrapped up in a couple rags.

    The bags are meant to be basically permanently mounted on the bike and to carry stuff I might need in case of a flat. They are Scotchguarded to aid in cleaning and some water resistance.

    The Velcro that they come with from Brady is darn strong enough, but since I had this.....

    perforated metal web on the crash bar I moded the bags with a soldering iron and some grommets on the backside and a 7.5" x 2" piece of plastic (for support) inside. They are VERY secure and baring any significant drops they should last for years.

    Payment has been sent for two of these in black. Yes, I am boring but I figure they'll get dirty eventually.

    I put 18"x13"x6.5" as the outer dimension of the liners but feel free to modify since you have a lot of experience with these. I have the link to the panniers if you want to take a look. As mentioned, I have a ride leaving the 29th and would love them by the 27th to start packing. Thanks a lot!!!

    Bought the Storm Tail Bag for the Altrider rear rack. After sorting out how to correctly fasten the tail bag to the rack... it fastened alright and has stayed that way for the last 2000 miles. There is a Slime pump, a plug kit, a string kit, a few tools, and room for something else. Looking for beacons.

    Thinking about asking Brady to make some short luggage bags for the OEM Side Case. They would be used for items permanently on the Tenere.

    Could be interested to buy a set of inner bag for the OEM Ulysses cases too if you're about to produce them.

    All my case liners are made-to-order so it's no problem to make another set.

    I received my Touratech Pro pannier liners from Brady utilizing both a perimeter zipper as well as double zippers on the top side. Excellent craftsmanship and a perfect fit.

    I asked Brady to expedite my case liners and he got them to me a week ahead of when I asked for. He was swamped with other orders so I have to give a big thanks to Storm. The liners are high quality and perfect....

    Thanks so much Brady!

    Hi Brady

    Some time ago I bought the Touratech Toolbox that fits on the front of the F800GS skid plate. It's been difficult to put tools in because it's relatively short and restrictive opening with latches and lock.

    I wondered whether you have had a request to build a toolroll for this particular box. If not I'd like to get something like the attached made.

    Given it's exposed position and the box isn't waterproof I'd like suggestions on material and zip.

    Hoping you can help. Postage to Australia?

    Brady,
    Was this one of your bags? If so what were the dimensions and cost?

    ....Brady to make me a pizza box.

    He obviously had a sicillian on his mind.

    It's a great place for me to keep jumper cables, clutch throttle cables, recovery kit, and tire supplies.

    Top notch as always. Brady put 2 handles on it, a full length 3 sided zipper, and big velcro tie downs. It's exactly what I needed as I felt like this was wasted space unless hauling my welder around.:lol3 Thanks Brady!!!

    Brady did an amazing job, as always, on my very custom, 4-item order. Thus far I've made use of the custom metal milkcrate bag for the scooter (my daily commuter) which has made grocery shopping and carrying crap to-and-from work easy and safe. I've had plenty of stuff jump out of various crates over the years, thanks to the potholes of Providence.

    all the pics

    Here's the bag in the milkcrate, stuffed full of groceries

    The trick -- two layers of Cordura on the bottom -- the interior layer is open on both sides which allowed me to slip in a flexible cutting board which stiffens the bag. I came up with this idea after watching the boyfriend struggle with his Pelican case bags flop over when not completely full.
