Has anyone experience with a Tunnel bag for the Piaggio MP3?
Seen the GIVI 455 advertised but hard to locate in the US.
Wonder if anyone has experience with any kind of other Tunnel bag to position above gas tank?

I don't know much about the Givi tunnel bag, but I installed and used an Aprilia bag that was huge. It worked really well, but I haven't used it much in a while. Now that I have big side cases and the big top case I have plenty of storage for travel.

The tunnel bag was useful and carried pretty easily. It was a bit of a pain when fueling, but not bad. If I were going long distance riding and camping I'd probably use it again, but that's not in the plans this year.

Here's a link to pictures and story from several years ago. The lower set of pics was the better set up.

With velcro straps, it is not hard to take off to fuel up. After all your body needs to move other parts after running to empty status. It does hold more, and a lower center of gravity it better. Worse thing; you have to raise your leg over it to get back on, like a real motorcycle ! How many times I tried to just subcontustouisly swing back on.....
