Mine came with the tool kit in it.. so I guess its so your tools dont get stolen.. I keep my ear plugs, and tools in mine.. What did Triumph make it for?
Okay, now I'm laughing, because they put a lock on it too.
Why would I lock it if I can't keep anything in it?
Due to the nature of rain, which is composed of water, which is, in fact, wet, items placed in a non- waterproof container (it says so right in your manual), to wit, the "little glove box", will in fact, absorb said water, and as a result, become wet. Placing objects in a waterproof container (see: ziplock bag, Ortleib, etc), and then locking them securely in the "little glove box" will then foster a condition referred to as "dry", which is, in fact, diametrically opposed to "wet". I choose to keep the Triumph Reclaimed Metal Tool Kit in the "LGB", to act as a sacrificial anode, and then add my bike papers in an actual waterproof container. Once in a while, I will take advantage of the LGB's semi- permeable aspect and put a small houseplant or amphibious creature in there for a few days. I've even seen tiny naked nymphs hot - tubbing in there after a particularly heavy summer downpour! Choose your desired scenario, adjust accordingly.Is the little glove box water proof so I can keep my wallet, cigarettes and cell phone in there? Or does rain get everything soakin' wet?
Well, you know you squids are always dropping them dang sport bikes, and those plastics are expensive to replace!Tax return should get me there. At least until I go back to the stealership and they say "congratulations, we'll give you 2,000 dollars for your 2007 CBR with 6,000 miles on it". If they take that route, then I have to wait to sell it outright
