    Well, after looking at some of the fantastic work on this thread I feel totally outclassed.

    Anyways, this is a little something I made to carry my tire repair stuff in. The last thing
    I wanted was a pair of pointy tire tools rattling around in my top case. So, I made this
    out of leather to hold the plug tools, a slime air pump and the tire plugs. Nothing much.
    But it does keep it all in one place.

    That's... a tough one to answer
    While I'm a big fan of the leather work, I wouldn't trust that compressor. I've had a few fail on me, one on my first use, which left me high and dry in some remote places. I took one of them apart just to see the hows and whys and found just some poor quality. The piston is plastic and on one of mine, poorly molded. The valving is just a tapered O-ring on the piston that was prone to popping out of place, and the gears are left to float a bit on their spindles, resulting in stripped teeth. Just a heads up.

    Cool, thanks. Have you deflated the back wheel and timed it to 41# on your GS?
    I am curious to know.

    Made a rack for my mountain bike. 4 bolts into the existing flat rack, a single adjustable post that holds the seat post of the bicycle, then tie the handlebars down as you see fit. :) Oh yeah, made that hard case mount also. Cheap (but waterproof) $10 Wal-Mart "ammo boxes".

    Do we need the obligatory KLR bashing "the mountain bike is worth more than the motorbike" statement? :norton

    I was thinking I would want a way to keep walking when the KLR broke down.

    Just kidding. Looks great.
