    I used a fork bag mounted low on my front frame tubes when I didn't have saddlebags on my Dyna. It's big enough for the tool kit and some first aid. I don't recommend putting one on the forks, I've seen too many scratched/rubbed fenders.

    I have a windshield bag, but it is too small, but have been using the larger version fork bag on my Sporty out back...

    I've been reading some and wondering about a solo bag? Fork bag seems small. I like your saddlebags NEWHD, what kind are they?

    Big Rol, the bags are Leatherneck Jims, ordered throwover type for simplicity with studs and braided edges...

    I just carry a couple of tools in my leather jacket, a compact muti-tool with interchangeable tips and a baby pair of visegrips incase a cable breaks, oh yea and a masterlink stuck in my other pocket.

    Masterlink??? is that the gizmo that links your iphone to your gps and the ecm to the smart siren and the HK advanced audio system so you remember where the bike is parked? I seem to remember hearing about this "masterlink" thing a while back. :newsmile011:
