looking for space on bike this is what i did ..
Ok ive been digging all over my bike for space ,to carry my spare bike parts for this trip, Home to Alaska next month ..
Ill keep posting as i load her up but here is a where i started ..
for panniers im running Wolfman expedition bags and racks with the traxx top box and a wolfman duffle ..
the tubes are heavy and bulky and didnt want to have them in my bags with food and clothes ..
First i mounted my smaller front tube on the left side rear plastic by sticking it in a waterproof poly sock ,then pressed tight as i could and duct taped her in it sits foward inside the plastic so it dont block intake ..
border patrol is gonna love me if they saw this lol ..
it fit right back up with no clearance issues at all ..
for the heavy duty rear tube ,i needed better space it dont fold as well or small but i lined it the same way and i was able to tuck her in on the right side front fairing and zip tied it to the fairing metal brackets up and out of the way ..
up and out of the way ...
