    Here is the fuel bag cover I bought:

    The fuel bag gets folded vertically to fit it through the opening, then the top flap sticks down with Velcro.

    From an inmate here who ordered a bunch of them from China.
    All sold now though and last I saw he was not going to order more.

    Found his thread HERE.
    As he posted in the first post in his thread, he is out of stock and will not be ordering more.
    It is possible if you send him a pm, he can tell you where he ordered them from and you can go direct.
    You can use Googlefu and see if you can find a manufacturer in China, India, Pakistan, Korea, and other countries that still make things.

    Just was checking out the Storm website STORE section for handlebar mitts/hand warmers and tool rolls and noticed the tool rolls entry didn't have an colors/size menu or ADD TO CART button...

    Little more cheerleading for Brady:

    I wanted to jump in here to showcase the Storm Industries bags by our own @corrado113. I picked these up in advance of a week-long Sequioa National Forest camping trip with just me and the Super Tenere (Five nights in a different backcountry dispersed site each night, no set destination just going wherever my map took me each day, only say another sole on one night. It was fantastic!). I got them from Brady's website at http://www.stormind.net/store.html The bags are made to order and I was a little apprehensive about whether they would arrive on time but with a couple of e-mails ahead of time Brady got me hooked up just in time for my trip.

    The panniers attach to the Altrider crash bars with four Velcro straps. In the week of riding I never had them come loose. Pictured here is the LH bag in place.


    [​IMG]

    I used this as my go bag for commonly needed items - Maps, compass, and my Surefire headlight.


    [​IMG]

    They filled the bag nicely with room left over for additional items, if needed.


    [​IMG]

    The right hand bag attaches much like the left.


    [​IMG]

    Keeping the strap tight leaves adequate room for airflow off the radiator. I was riding through temperatures up to 105º while getting to the mountains with no issues with the bike (me on the other hand, I was hot as hell!).


    [​IMG]

    This side carried my oh crap tools. Micro Start jump box, tire plug kit, compressor, some tools, and tow strap.


    [​IMG]

    This load out filled the bag up a bit more than the left hand bag but you could still fit some additional items in, if needed. Note this is the hot side of the bike. While I didn't notice any objectionable heating to the bag I wouldn't use this side to carry my candy bars.


    [​IMG]

    I do not regret this purchase, I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of them.

    They look exactly like the ones he made for my Gs1200 for the trip to Ak. last summer. They weathered many storms, took three days for wet to enter the bag inside, and then only damp, not swamped. Mine have been over 10K on the bike and are no worse for wear in those traveled miles.

    Bump for Brady and his awesome service. Had a custom sized tent pole / folding camp table bag made in cool gray color. It met my specs perfectly and arrived super fast. Thanks!

    I'm wondering if you also do repair work?
    Apparently or at least according to my co-workers I'm too hard on my motorcycle gear, 'cause I'm riding too much I guess. I had it closed via duct tape, that didn't work too well either. Anyhow, what do you think about this. It's a Tourmaster Centurion, one piece suit, the issue is on the left leg right behind the zipper. Here's a couple pictures.
    Thanks.

    Looking at the pics, I think this is something I can fix for you. I'll shoot you a PM and we can work out the details.

    I'm interested in more details on the bar muffs- are they held to the bars/guards by anything more than the velcro bits visible in the pictures? Is there something around the hand opening that allows it to be re-shaped for the individual rider? The circular opening looks a bit big and drafty compared to what I've been using...

    Dan will reply as well I'm sure but as a satisfied customer:
    They require hand/brush guards to keep their shape
    They go over the guards and the velcro fixes around the bars and the mirror stalks which keep them in place
    There is nothing in the "arms" or the openings to allow you to "shape them" but they are long enough that they do well and short enough for easy input/removal of hands - which is important and why there's probably not something that allows for a more rigid shape-able opening as you don't want anything interfering with either the easy input or removal of your hands from the bars when needed
    They work well though and with heated grips I rode in wet lower 40 degree temps with my summer gloves

    globalt38 nailed it! I use these myself and have used them down into the teens with heated grips and summer gloves with no issues. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    I didn't want to bog down your vendor thread, so I posted here with more of a description of what I'm looking for. I found a significant difference in having less airflow out around the wrists, though inflow around the bars is the biggest problem with the Oxfords.
