Tool Tube

I was at the HUMP meeting in the west of England over the weekend and someone there mentioned using a Tractor Manual Canister as a tool box. Of course, being me, I forgot to take down any details of it for further investigation. I think it was from a John Deere tractor.

Can anyone help with further information on this?

Aha! Sorry I didn't wander over and say hello - was there without bike (just me the wife and a red Toyota Corolla) - must be more polite next time - will hopefully have a bike then :scooter:

Another possibility would be either a bum bag from Kriega or a moose front fender bag with tool roll.

Not sure where you're riding (obviously on a GS you're not tossing yourself into the local forest / peat bog) but the trouble with 'containers' is that tools rattle & bascially stuff gets trashed in the process.

All the dirt bikes you see with the 'zip pouch' on the rear, no use in reality (found out the hard way). Bum bags ride with the rider so get an easy life & they have compression straps.

Fender bags (they will fit the rear fender as well) also have compression straps to stop the contents getting trashed. Moose also do a tool roll for fitting inside the bag (as do Kriega for the bum bags).

If you want somewhere to stick the odd £20 for fuel or your happy to pack the tube with paper then that's a good alternative.

Hi Dan,

I think all 60 are basically sold, I will be having a new delivery of 100 in around 6 weeks.

I'll mail you when they are in, or perhaps mail me to remind me.

Kind regards

Hi Guys n Girls

Check out this link


considering they only cost $4.99 plus postage, it looks like ebay is a big rip off !!

If you go down to B&Q or the like, you can pick up a plastic drainpipe tube and a screw top for a lot less than the Tooltube. And choose your own diameter....

The Agri Supply thing looks much better for a sensible price.

Tool Tube

I purchased one of these Tool Tubes at Ripley - they look just the job BUT can't find anywhere to put it on my Africa Twin.... I paid £15 for it - any offers.... Nigel

current fave places seem to be under/behind the rear rack, or in front of the bash plate (but i would have thought there would be a stone or heat problem there?
