It's the TS1620S 'wide' tunnel bag. I think it would be best for GRiSO.

Pardon me Pete, but I used your bike to model the bag as well.

OK, Just placed my order for one at $101, no tax free shipping.
Don't have $101 but I do have a Visa card!
I like the ability to stack another bag on top.

Better than $569 for the Guzzi bags right now.

Well, not so hot on the Saddlemen bag. I strapped it down and took it for a spin. The strap clamps let go and it flipped onto the muffler, burned a hole in one side. The mounting pad is difficult to make stable, it needs to be strapped down with bungie cords to work. It also come with metal hardware that would scratch paint. Needs a bit of fiddling.

I just got my Stucchi rack.
Ordered it Tuesday, and it arrived earlier today.
Lovely piece of kit.
Onto that, my BMW "small" (actually it's pretty big), semi rigid tail bag fits perfectly.
The added benefit of that is that it provides decent pillion back support.
I ordered the Stucchi bag supports for the rack, which accept the Guzzi panniers, meaning I can dispense with the ugly side frames.
My bags are branded Tekno, but they use identical fittings to that of the Guzzi bags.
Probably the same manufacturer.
I also found a guy on ebay, who makes the Givi tank lock system bracket for the GRiSO, which fits onto the tank filler cap surround (Givi don't make it), so I now have a good choice of tank bags.
It's a brilliant system that I have used on other bikes
All in all, very pleased

Just making an assumption, but he's already here...

Do you have a link for that Givi ring? Or is the fellow in the UK? On the US eBay site I could not find it.

Here, I think.

I like my MG OEM small tank bag well enough, but, IMO, the Givi system is a much better approach.  Straps are a PITA.

[Edited to add that I didn't see the link already posted, above. Doh.

OTOH, maybe others won't, either, so I'll leave mine.]

Yes that's him.
It's a bit spendy, but then you only buy it once, and these Givi tank bags are really good.

I patched the hole in my Saddlemen bag and modified the pad it sits on. I riveted the straps to the pad, now the bag won't slide from side to side. Will let you know how it works.

I haven't ridden with mine yet. I'll have to give it a trial run. If mine slips I may need to try something like you.

Strap it down with bungie cords from the top rings. The bottom ones arnt as good. It feels solid and then it rolls right off, there is nothing to keep the straps from sliding in the pad.

Still working on my Saddlemen.


My Givi 3D604 arrived today. It's teeny-weeny. Shocked   15 litres I thought would be about 3/4 the size of my Guzzi big bag. Nope, it fits inside my Guzzi bag.

I can fit my sleepy bag in, or a bottle of bourbon, but not both. My wee net-top don't fit neither. I could probably pack my wet weather gear.

Mine arrived today too. I thought it would be a bit bigger. It does expand up a bit more with the second zip but it is still considerably smaller than the factory bag. Doesn't worry me unduly, it just means I have to consider which one I use when I'm going somewhere. For most of my usual 'errand running' it'll do fine. I do like it's sort of semi-rigid construction.

Looks better here than on the web. Hmmm, maybe I should consider it. I'm keen on its' water tightness. The Guzzi bag with its' cover still gets wet. I think the water works its' way up from the bottom.

Did yours come in a box? Mine was in a post pack with a bit of bubble-wrap. The semi-rigid lid was dinged up a bit.

Overnight post bag. No box. Mine is fine. I bought from some mob in Queensland. It arrived and then the shipping notification arrived last night!

New tablet fits in the pouch just right.

Waiting with bated breath...  C'mon Turkey Transit!

Alas, I still have to order up a tankbag...  Still leaning towards the 15L 3D604, but would be interested in seeing photos of the 3D603 on the GRiSO as well as any of your impressions.

What's going on with your tank Beets? Looks like a paint problem, or is it just a weird photo?

Weird photo. Bloody Apple. Grr. Latest software update on the iPhone disables manual focus on the rear camera. I used the front camera, so angles are a bit weird.


I bought an XS308. I know it's the 'enduro' model, but at $76 I couldn't resist. Allegedly 20L. It's still quite a bit smaller than the Guzzi bag.

I reckon the 603 must be tiny. The 604 isn't large by a long chalk but I think the 603 is big enough for sunglasses, a packet of smokes and a wallet and that's about it.

I'm pleased with the 604 because of its semi rigid construction and tablet pouch and for everyday running around it's ideal for me but if I'm 'Going Anywhere' I'll probably take the Guzzi bag.
