I store my tool pouch right in the tail behind the seat, but someone had a bracket to put the Fuseblock way back there.. my Fuseblock is under the main seat.

You guys must not get out much.
I occasionally find myself in places
where neither cell phone nor
credit cards would do you much good.

Back to topic, under my passenger seat
I stow jumper cables, a siphon hose,
flashlight and first-aid kit. Also a small
bottle of ibuprofen.
Have had opportunity to use all of above.
Often to help others.

I just pulled the passenger seat in preparation for a ride. The mouse house is back and made from insulation again. I also found:

a bag of Rok Straps
2 lightweight nylon gym type bags

When traveling 2-up for multiple days cargo space can be a problem. In an emergency that UPS or USPS can't remedy by posting home extra stuff the nylon bags step in. I use a couple of Rok Straps to put the now stuffed bags on top of the side cases to handle the temporary overflow. Experience has shown the best way to get this done securely and safely and it works well.
