Is it big enough for a bottle of Knob Creek?

Ha!  Nah, cuz it's square.   Razz

But will look at other options (of bourbon!).  Many grappa bottle will be fine. cheers

BTW, got some interesting feedback on ADVRider on similar post.

"RedHawk47," in particular, mentioned using "tractor manual tubes."

I ended up ordering some.  Still like Guzziownr's more elegant faux CF for the GRiSO, but the tractor tubes are astonishingly inexpensive and the more industrial look is fine for the Stornello.  See Tractor Manual Tubes

More here is you care:   ADVRider Post on Subject

Bill,

I like that test plug fitting, makes it look dangerous. Do you have a band saw in your shop? You'll have an easier time of getting a square cut with that and a miter gauge. Chop saw works well too if it has enough capacity.

Finished and mounted the one for the GRiSO.  Used -- at least for now -- cable ties.

Added an Italian Air Force roundel on the end.   cheers

The tube snugs up nicely to the C-Bow rack and leaves enough clearance to mount the side bags.

Now, can take day trips with it for gadgets and only the small Givi tankbag for things the "Yes, Officer"  might need.   Rolling Eyes  Wink

Thanks to the OP, guzziownr, for the idea.

That's looking good Bill, nice job. I would leave the ends black rather than Italian flagged but either way it looks like an OEM aftermarket item !

Thanks, Paul.  That's high praise to a guy who flunked 7th grade shop when I could not even cobble together a wooden shadow box.  I am very serious.  Sad  

As for the roundel, I have tacky tastes.   Very Happy

Seriously, I thought the roundel a bit of a nod to Carlo Guzzi, Giovanni Ravelli and Giorgio Parodi, who met each other while in the Italian Air Force in WWI.  But, it may come off anyway, as that end piece is concave and rubber, thus it resists the roundel.  Oh, well; at least I have a pic.

Understand, but perhaps, along with your tools, you include a pet Vipera berus, which I understand lives in the Netherlands …

Actually, Moto-T, I only call it a “tool tube,” but as Pete notes …

… it’s perfect for this:

On the merits, a fellow on ADVRider questioned use of cable ties, suggesting they would fail.  Tony mused about that at the top of this thread, too.  Maybe.  But I’m going that route for awhile.  That said, Tony’s mention of velcro straps may be how how I do this on the Stornello, which remains a challenge.

I like it! Nice job, Bill. Tractor manual tubes look intriguing too... (Steak, do they sell those at North-40?)

I do not intend to use mine.  I got a 3" and 2".  

Tractor Tubes

Happy to send both to you gratis.  Payback for the Seattle welcome tour.  Very Happy

Seriously, let me know if you want 'em.
