Hi Guys. Thought I'd show the home made tube I use to carry spare inner tubes for the XC. Three of us have Tigers so on trips one of us needs to carry spares. Actually a toilet brush holder from B & Q.

I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

 :eusa_clap much better than the drainpipe jobbies I've seen!
I think I'd prefer that to the tractor 'manual canister' too (which are cheap, but strangely hard to locate, even in this rural farming community)
... How does it close/seal?

Hi again. The tube is sealed with tie wraps through two holes in the cap and the tube. ( hole can be seen in this pic ) I didn't like the look of the tractor tubes or the plastic pipe ones and this only cost £4.95 plus a piece of alloy strip for the bands.
Even been asked for the part number.

Excellent lateral thinking and a fine job.

Couldn't find anything in B&Q but found this today in Lidl for 3.99, It should be up to the job, once I find a way to make it watertight... I think I prefer the black though.  They did also have them in lilac, pink and lemon  :icon_smile:

Nothing wrong being in touch with our 'softer' sides!! ... and, again, you can use the bog brush for detailing the engine.
