    Transalp

  10. Side panel tool box !!!

    Africa Twin
    Has anyone modified the standard tool box to make it securer? It’s not so much that my tools are valuable – just to me they are …. I’m looking for ideas / experiences…. I’ve thought about a steal cover, but this could be heavy, ali is not strong enough unless I bead the edges… I can put the...
