    So how do you like that SW Motech toolbox mounted to the SW Motech skid plate? Does it hold all your tools? Is the toolbox bolted or welded to the bash plate ?

    The skid plate is BMW OEM enduro, the box is Touratech, it mounts with two bolts downside and two brackets upside and use the skidplate front panel as back side of the box, I carry always inside, lubricant for my chain and all the necessary only tools for chain tension and both wheels removal. I bought with many other thinks for the bike, true answer, you can live without it as I think is small enough , I carry my main tools at separate kriega bags at crash bars.

    Many thanks for posting detailed photos.

    You can never have enough space to stash tools. Especially keeping center of gravity low.

    Thanks.

    I keep a complete for my thougths, kit of tools at two kriega 5liter bags at both sides of my crash bars, tha most common to use at the right side so I can reach it easy at side stant. But is a personal preference for everyone, if you have the non adv bike you can olso go with the inside of pannier bracket stash box.

    I also use a small 5 liter bag on each side of my Altrider crash-bars on my F800GS. Fits right into the oval part of crash-bar. Made by Black Bags.

    I keep some lighter tools and my First Aid kit.

    I keep my stuff in a small dry bag although the Black Bags do come with YKK waterproof zipper.

    Last year I changed from my Jesse Luggage to the BUMOT luggage. The big driver for me the BUMOT lockable toolbox that tucks behind the right luggage rack. Love the BUMOT construction and quality.

    I tested the luggage within days of installing them after accidentally dropping the bike in my driveway. You can see a better view of the BUMOT toolbox.

    After the bike took a knapp on driveway, I realized the Touratech plastic hand guards don't hold up to a fall. So, I installed some Highway Dirt Bike hand guards. No chance these babies will ever bend or crack.
