Be careful where you mount this if you buy one of these, don't mount over the front mudguard. I originally mounted mine there but didn't think about the fork movement which after only a five mile ride had already started to rub on the mudguard paint work.
May sound like a stupid thing to do but I have spoken to several people since doing that who have done the same thing

I'm with smart on this one! IMHO leather stuff should be strictly confined to biker clothing not ornaments on your ride itself........ I mean, do any of you actualy carry anything useful in these tool rolls i.e. waterproof trousers etc? or are they just for show??....... Come on, be honest! 8)

My tool suzuki tool kit is crap, I like to have a decent amount of tools on me. Although to be honest over the years I have used them for other people many more times than I have ever got them out for myself

I remember the days when you HAD to carry tools. ........
A Triumph and oily two strokes were my thing.

BMW rider stops for a broken down Triumph chop.
'can I help you mate' ?
'Have you got a 30mm spanner or similar' ?
'Open ended, or ring' ?
'Don't matter mate, I need to use it as a hammer'.

Sorry I hold my hands up I mounted mine on the front forks and yes Scratched the F.... out of my paint   So now its on the back rack. I hold my bike lock and helmet cable in it cause the helmet lock is as much good as a chocolate fire guard with panniers on.
