Front side bags

Hello guys:
I just made a couple of soft bags that come out very handy to carry tools, GPS, papers, money or whatever you need to have easy acces without having to go back and open your top case or paniers. I found them at Cabelas and they actually are some
kind of bag to keep a hand gun but, they fit perfectly into the crash bars. The great thing is that they just cost $5.00 Us dollars each. All I did was to sew some Velcro straps to fix them to my crash bars.
I road test them at high speed and they hold pretty good with no problem at all.
I post some pictures below.

Could not get the link but here below are a couple of pics with all the info you need.
There are three sizes, just order the small size. They will fit exactly in the GIVI crash bars, just add some velcro stripes.

I posted this elsewhere, but bicycle under-seat tool pouches also fit. And they have the added benefit of having the fastening straps already existing, usually at 3 points. Furthermore, those are built to carry some weight over rough terrain.
