Question Where do I mount a tool tube on a 8A?

I didn't buy the skid plate that offers an add on tool box. The usual spot I would use would be inboard the panniers, but the A fuel tank swells take that out. I need a tube. Now
Who has figured out a good spot? Lets see it.

"Right behind you."

The 800gsA has different parts that preclude mounting where I would have put the tube on a GS. I thought I made that clear in the first post. The fat gas tank and pannier mounts are different.
If anyone has mounted a tube on a gsA I would appreciate seeing how you did it.
I'm leaving soon on a 12000 mile ride.

Same problem here, ... nothing else found to mount as only possible place at the lowercrashbar or at the panniers but those are both a no go for me.

It's frustrating. I have SKT Industries tool bags that are designed to fit the Agra tool tubes that I used on my 990. But I can't see a place to mount new tubes. The bags take up valuable space in my panniers

Mounted here for a few months. Be sure to support it from the top (note strap to upper bar) just temporary locale though as this space is reserved for a Camel tank.




I realize the bike appears to be packed and ready to leave tomorrow for a week long trip to Death Valley but, that's because the bike is packed and ready to leave tomorrow for a week long trip to Death Valley.

Is there room to stand it up on a passenger peg, and strap it to the foot peg bracket down tubes?
