    Budget bag

    I needed a storage/carrying solution and HATE to spend money.

    $3.99 for a soft cooler from the thrift store, a well used cutting board from the kitchen, a few screws from the hardware store and a rainy day.

    Bugboy - I like your style and LOVE finding (close to free) solutions for TW problems. Keep the ideas coming.

    Great idea. I have a marine battery case screwed on the back of mine. I hated going for fast food and couldn't carry drinks. I bought slip over cup holders, put on the inside of my case and now drinks are no problem.

    I'm a big fan of "Cooler boxes" unless you need to match your 10k plus Beamer or KTM of course.

    < than $30 for the TW and < than $20 for the DR. Good for carrying some stuff back from the store, most importantly, a 12 pack.
