Makeshift Saddlebag For Vulcan 500

Here's a cheap, makeshift saddlebag (a.k.a. plain old messenger-type book bag) that is very simply secured to one side of the cruiser end. So far, it's stayed put throughout a 10-minute highway test ride.

In the video below, you can see that the bag is securely held in place simply by leading the bag's leather strap through a circuitous path about various fixed structures on the bike.

Now the bike is (hopefully) ready for service in the noble pursuit of hunting and gathering -- i.e. trips to and from sandwich shops, burger joints, ice-cream crusades, etc.

Welcome to Will's Kitchen: Sweeping with an S13

How do you take the boredom out of sweeping your floors? Kick it up a notch (figuratively speaking) with an S13. (drift tires and paint job by yours truly)
