Default Has anyone made/found some pockets to store small items?

Hey guys. Has anyone found a good location to store small items on their Vegas platform bike? What I'm talking about is some area somewhere on the bike that you can make something to store small stuff like a pair of glasses or something like that? Under the fender, behind one of the side covers, under seat, front of the bike somewhere? Just thinking outside of the box. This is for striped down bikes with no storage areas.

You could get a tool roll. They can be mounted to the fork just below the headlight, possible your bars, and the seeing arm.

If it were me I think the seeing arm is where I'd go. They seem to be a bit bigger.

Magnetic tank bag. Stores your goodies and had window compartments on top for phone, GPS, etc..

I used to stash my pot in my undies, if you wanted to stash on your Vegas there's inside the headlight shell and under the seat but space is minimal and tools are needed to access.
You could velcro to the inside of your sidecovers with a little prep work.
What have you got to hide anyway?

Not so much hiding anything just looking for a small easily accessible storage pocket. Maybe my glasses, small pistol, or any other goodies I want to put in there. Lol. I guess I just need to search around and look for a cubby hole somewhere on the bike. I thought someone might have already done something like that

your over thinking that some ones going to go threw your bag. Leave the gun at home and if someone steels your glass's there are plenty of places that sell them. Get a bag so you can put a few tools in them and your glass and gloves. If you had to go for your gun by the time you got it you would be dead
