What are people using by way of a tunnel bag when travelling? I have the large rear trunk on my GTS250ie, but would prefer to stow luggage down low. I've Goggled and found a Shad CS30 and SC25 and Givi seems to make a couple as well. Anyone have any hands-on advice to share?

I used to use a givi tunnel bag. Probably would use it again if i was going for a more than a week, but generally i just prefer to pack light

Also, it can rub or scratch the paint ...

I have not used a tunnel bag as I have a large 47L top case and a front rack. Depends on where you are traveling if you need to carry spare gas. The spare gas can I have is carried where a tunnel bag would fit.

That Givi bag seems a good one for me to consider, but so far I've just gone a bit crude, strapping a cheap backpack to my tunnel/floorboard rack. There's actually more room for my feet than it appears. This camping trip's total load was about 45 lbs (tent, sleeping bag, stove, wine, food, clothing), and handling was just like unloaded. I only put light items in the top case, like mid-layers and a hat, since my spare fuel stows under the rear rack.

The Givi appears to allow much better access when mounted.

I use a GTS tunnelbag from Sea'n'Sand. I have transported many heavy loads in it and because the bag sits low, the impact on ride quality is minimal.
