    Bummer! At a bare minimum, I should be able to patch up the material. I would have to take a look at it to see if I could install a new zipper. Once you start taking some of those apart you open a huge can of worms trying to put them back together! :eek1

    Shoot me a PM if you are still interested.

    Have you ever made a bag for a Coleman Triton 2 burner camp stove?

    I am trying to figure out if you did and still have the measurements?

    Thanks

    I don't recall ever having done a bag for that specific stove. If you have the dimensions, shoot them to me in a PM and we can go from there.

    Just wanted to do a post-ride report and say that these the SIX bags (on three rental bikes) Brady made for my buddies and I performed perfectly for our ride this summer!

    We were able to maximize the space in the IM2600s and minimize packing/loading time. Plus, the awesome bright orange and blue is hard to miss!

    While they were all the same size, he made different specs for each of us: some with dual openings, D-rings, embroidery, etc. We really couldn't have found a more efficient way to carry and organize our stuff from Alaska to the Mexican border.

    My actual bike has a pair of E360s on it, but I'm keeping my liner bags because they're just awesome. And I might just have to get some IM2600s the next time around...

    Oh, I should also add that for the flight to AK, one of us saran wrapped the two bags together (check in); one of us duct-taped the two bags together (check in); and two of us each carried one on board.

    Other than a little dirt on the bottoms, these bags still looked new after three weeks on the road.

    Thanks again, Brady! :clap:clap:clap:clap

    I have one of these -

    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=822894

    as do hundreds of others here and on other sites.

    I take my tool and adapter on long rides and would love a custom case for it. Maybe a modified tool roll type? The edges are sharp on one of the pieces so something reinforced where it contacts it would be needed.

    I will send you needed dimensions.

    You might get a lot of interest for one of these.

    Thanks

    PS my 2 tool tube bags are holding up great after over 10k of use (mostly trail)

    That's a slick tool! Shouldn't be too tough to make up a pouch to carry it in. Shoot me over the dimensions and I'll take a look.

    Can you make these same cases (with the side zipper) for a pair of Seahorse 720's?

    I have those liners in black for my 720's. They work great!

    Is there anything that you wish you would have added, or do you like the as they are? Maybe an inside mesh pocket on the lid?

    Would it be possible to make some handlebar muffs for a Triumph Scrambler? It has a remote brake fluid reservoir. Hippo Hands said they don't make muffs that fit the Scrambler for that reason.

    Not my bike, but I have the same non-stock Moose handlebars on mine, plus Zeta handguards:

    Couch ninja,

    At this point no. Maybe after a couple of trips I'll have different ideas. One thing that I added later was a stiffener to the bottoms and sides.

    I like the idea of the safety colors or triangle.

    Ultimately some dividers for cook stuff and the like would be nice but is way to specific.

    Looking at the pictures I would guess that my stock warmers would not fit either. I could probably adapt my design to accommodate the reservoir. Send me a PM and we can go from there.

    Ateam... Very observant!!!
    Almost 100% correct. '07 r1200gs :D
    But the center piece is a large tool roll :(
    No camping gear yet, although I promised Brady I would look for stuff to smother with cordura.
    Brady's work is magnificent and affordable!

    Hi Brady,

    I'm looking to get some bags made up for my '03 R1550GSA with Jesse Panniers, and you see to be the go-to person for this!

    PM Sent as well.

    I'd like 2 Pannier Liners, but only coming to about 2" below the sill of the panniers so there's room to stuff things on top of the bag liners. Side and Top zippered opening, with handles to pull them out and head to the tent with (no center divider)

    I'd also like a set of Lid Bags for the Jesse's, but I'd like one of them to be made with 2 sections (divided in the middle) with separate zipper opening for each section. It'd be super sweet to have a couple of slots on the outside of each lid liner to slide documents, maps, pens/pencils, notepads, etc.. into so that when the tops of the panniers are opened those items can be grabbed without unzipping the lid liners... but having clearance of the "lid insert racks???".

    I also need some tool tube bags. I'm using welding rod storage tubes (http://www.lowes.com/pd_367048-1703-KH550_0). The dimensions are 12" long (with an additional 2" inside the lid), so no more than 14" in total length, with an ID of 3". I'd like 2 6" long bags for one of the tubes, and a tool roll for the other.

    Lastly, one of your standard map pouches would be great as well.

    Please let me know what the pricing and timing would be on these, and what it would cost to have logos embroidered as an option.

    Thanks,

    Wolfe

    Here is what the tire tool looks like when put together:
    [​IMG]

    Here it is when taken apart for storage on the bike:

    [​IMG]

    Side view:

    The maximum dimensions are:

    12.5" long
    3" wide
    and 1.5" tall (only at the square part on the end)

    So I am looking for a storage bag using the least amount of space as possible.

    As you can see there are some sharp edges so maybe reinforcing of the material on the ends?

    A small pouch with a velcro fold over flap is an option unless you have a better idea.

    A couple of these in KTM orange would work just great for me and my riding buddy (Shhhh - it's a surprise for Xmas!)
