Neil's toolbox....

Good friend and neighbour Neil C. has come up trumps again...

He's built a bespoke wooden toolbox and has collected all sorts of tools from friends & family for it.

He's put alot of thought into the tools needed and his experience of travelling in the remotest parts of Africa has been invaluable in the preparation of the bike (and me).

Additionally, he's made 6 brackets for the bike:

These fit onto the lower fairing to allow straps to be easily fitted to carry other items.

It's important to get as much of the weight forward of the driver and as low down as possible.

They've been designed for use with a self tapping screw in addition to the 10mm bolt. The self tapper should stop the moment of force trying to undo the bolt (well - that's the theory!)
