    My old bike (F650GS - single) had these fancy "peg packer" things I could mount on the passenger pegs - one on each side.

    Now, I've simplified and gone a little more basic - Kolpin mounted on a cutting board.

    Pick up some 4 or 5 quart oil jugs at a truck stop. Use them and the discard (properly) when done. They are heavy and designed to hold petroleum.
