TP storage?

What is everyone using to store the TP when its not on the bike?

Trying to decide if its worth the investment for the manufactured ones (around 100 bucks) or something that can be home made....

Thanks
Dan

I should probably look for something more long term myself, but right now I am using the box it came in with a towel on the bottom and top. But the only time I plan or do take it off is when it goes to the shop. Interested as well what others use.

I made one out of some stuff I had laying around in the barn. I had two heavy metal shelf braces. I wraped some carpet around the metal, mounted them on the wall. I just slide the TP over the top. Total price $0.00. I will take a pic for you later today but it's real easy. You could do the same thing with some 2X4s.

I don't have either...BUT- I'll be in the market for a Tour Pack next year and have looked at making one or buying one.......I don't know how to weld, so for me, I could possibly make one that would suite, but I'm gonna spend all day & probably have $40-50 in materials.....I'm just gonna buy one already made & ready to use.......

I have one of these too and it is great. Keep the TP, Torrest back rest and 4 helmets. Thought of making one but for $100 it was a an easy decision.
