I have my compressor in that space. My tools are either in the tool tube or pannier

Cool idea,  :thumleft:
I was wondering about the electrical wires in there, but I think it is manageable.

I am not sure how waterproof that space is.  But it is also where the alarm is housed, if you have that option.
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

Is the compressor not a bit heavy for that? Just wondering, as the area below the pillion seat is plastic. Any kind of object vibrating around there is bound to crack or break it, not?

here are the pics as promised.

as you can see the compressor is a snug fit so there is no movement and the hollow space under the seat is fairly robust

^That's not an LC...

I was referring to an LC when I spoke about the plastic underneath there... and the LC does not have a dedicated tool storage area there, on the LC the tools are attached to, and under neath the pillion seat itself.

No hang on, no need to apologise. I was just trying to explain why I assumed you were talking about the LC. Advice always appreciated.  :thumleft:

Underneath the pillion seat .... on the LC .... you can ( just) fit a tyre repair kit .... I will post some pics asap.

Those kits that you buy in a zipped bag with 3 bomme , a few plugs , spare valve ....

That's where my kit is permanently. Not water/dust/mudproof though but always ready to plug a hole.
