Sounds like a photo-op to me! An academic's home shop--the bookshelf is the workbench. Send a photo over, Paul.

Speaking of spare tire bags--does anyone have a suggestion for a good under-the-seat bag for a spare sewup? I have used a couple of Madden bags for years and really liked them. All the ones I find now are either too small for a sewup, or are really ugly, like the Pedros.
