Nooks and Crannies under the Seat: K1200GT (K1300GT?)
I would like to advantage of the nooks and crannies under the seat for those days when I can leave the side and top cases at home.
What do you store under there? How do you attach them so they don't rattle or fall out?
All I have right now is the user manual and paperwork, plus a BMW toolkit (part #: 71-60-7-704-086) in the rubber strap, plus two small (thin) Rok straps crammed in the gaps next to a plastic-covered electronic module.
I've noticed other "available" spaces under the seats:
* A small area on either side of the tail light. The left side (rider facing forward) is larger.
I thought about tucking a pair of wide Rok Straps on either side, but worry about heat issues, damage to the taillight, or interference with the seat lock.
* Large areas behind each rear side panel. On the left side there is a thin "basket". The right side is smaller, and doesn't have the basket. I haven't figured out how to attach items there in a convenient manner so that they wouldn't rattle around, fall out, or be exposed to the weather from underneath. I thought about storing a first aid kit and a few extra tools there.
Any suggestions? Are there safety or damage risks?
