    thanks, I think it worked out well, esp. that I don't need any other bags (tail, tank bag) for the tools and tubes)

    I might steal some of your ideas. ;)

    I'm using a tool tube and a pair of Givi crashbar bags to carry all my tools, I'm sure there is room to reduce what I'm carrying.

    I did add the Honda OEM tank bag to my AT but its main purpose is to carry a water bottle, I can't get used to wearing a hydration pack.

    No pics of my setup, too icy to pull the bike out of the garage...it is detached.

    Go for it.
    I stole the idea about the tire spoons from another guy somewhere.
    key thing was for it to all fit on the bike. That way, if I travel light, I don't have to worry about other bags.
    My SW motech GS Tank bag (25L) monster will house my 2L water bladder (can't wear a back pack because of my airbag vest), camera, and odds and end.

    It's been stupid cold here, and tons of snow..

    dunno about beautiful, but useful for sure!
    The rack was cut by a buddy of mine, that was a nice job
