Does anyone have one. How do you like it? How does it attach? Thanks, Brett

I looked at the EA105 and the T472 before buying the latter which fits OK using a single strap passed under the seat. I went for the T472 because it can also be used as a seat tail bag - it's cheaper too!

Hope this helps.

That's the Givi T496 tunnel bag here in the UK, it fastens onto the tunnel with a belt and 2 clips.

I'm a big fan of the tunnel bag, my own Moto-Detail tunnel bag has a long Velcro covered flap on either side that mates with the Velcro patches I've placed either side of the tunnel. It's a simple and effective way to mount a tunnel bag, and it pulls away easily for refuelling. I used the the bag on the 400 and 650 Burgman before I got the Silver Wing.

I cover it with a clear topped tank bag rain cover with the map case off a Chase Harper Europa tank bag underneath for route cards when needed.

I like the looks of the EA105. I think it would match the shape of the tunnel nicely. The T472 looks too much like a womans purse. I've been looking for a proper tunnel bag but couldnt find one available. Maybe i'll order one. Thanks for finding this one!

These bags are more than likely out of production. I haveT472, in addition to one I bought in Korea. T472 for sale if anybody wants it, call 715-894-7857 or jgrinsel@yahoo.com.

I don't use the straps---just self tapping eye bolt in front plastic and snap---works

Yes, but will you get it before Christmas if you order now? I sent an availability inquiry several days ago, and the site owner has not bothered to reply. From things I have read about that place, I'm not going to bother. I'll gladly pay a little more for fast, reliable service. From other posts in this forum, I gather that silverwingstuff.com is neither.

The current price of my Moto-Detail tunnel bag is €29.95 or £25.16 or $38.93. It has 22 litres storage capacity, has a waterproof cover, and can also be used as a seat pack or shoulder bag. It hasn't got Silver Wing stitched on it but I can live with that. Smile

I devised a tunnel-bag system using a small tank-bag and some DIY-store bits.

Bob got me a Silverwing tunnel bag from Bestem USA .com a couple of years ago for Christmas. I just checked the site and they are on sale for $48.98 right now. It works for me. Service was good.

Cathy, has it got a map-pocket on the top?
It looks as if it has but it's hard to see for sure.

Yes it does. It is a bit difficult to put the map in and it is a narrow shape. It can be done though. It is not a water proof bag. I use a rain cover from a generic rain cover from a tank bag. And I put a plastic bag inside the tunnel bag when there is a threat of rain. Having that extra space in front of you is nice and handy.

I got the rain covers from Road Gear. They are bright yellow. You need to secure the rain cover from the bottom with a little bungie cord. I put two grommets on each side. To keep the cover secure. Otherwise it blows up like a balloon and can come off.

From whom please, Meldrew, and is postage included?

The only UK supplier that pops up in Google is Getgeared @ £32.99, with up to two weeks delay.

Looking at pictures of it, compared to the Givi 105 (on 1st Line/Motorcycle Planet @ £53), I prefer the the Moto Detail. The zips appear better covered and there's a handle.

Both the above include postage.

I got mine in Düsseldorf a few years ago from the Louis store. They have a tie up with GetGeared here in the UK who sell a lot of the stuff Louis stock. The price I quoted was the current one from Louis using their currency converter, and since I'm using my iPhone to do this I'm not going to check the price right now.

If you use mail order from Louis in Germany they are very quick and efficient. www.louis.de. I bought my Garmin sat nav from them last year and got it within 3-4 days, and you can track your package from them to you all the way with DHL.

Thank you Meldrew. That would explain the delay - despatched from Germany via leafy Surrey.

Although cheaper to buy from Louis, by the time I add the UK shipping, it comes to a pound more than from Getgeared. Worth it for the quicker (tracked) delivery?

Oh, hang on...
Firefox doesn't like the Louis check-out; "untrusted - invalid certificate".

You could always order it from Getgeared then ride down and collect it; the shop's worth a visit. Smile

Mike, research suggests that the Cortech bag you have is no longer available. Whence came yours?

Based, almost entirely, on Meldrew's unreserved recommendation (so it'll be his fault if it proves to be crap), I've ordered the Moto-Detail bag from those efficient folk on Germany.

I can probably write "SilverWing" on it using by best crayons!


I looked a several other bags, but found this to offer the best combination of capacity, finish, features and price. Anyway, if I'm not 110% happy, I'll see you behind the bike shed at playtime, OK Meldrew.

I cut off the carrying handles I wouldn't use on my tunnel bag, and use the rain cover with a clear top off a motorcycle tank bag so I can read route cards. I haven't always used sat nav.

A problem you might encounter is getting Velcro pads to stick to the 'new' plastic on the Silver Wings tunnel, you need to remove that newness to get full adhesion from the adhesive pads.

Don't go hanging round any bike sheds either, I don't live anywhere near Eton. Smile

Meldrew, you may sleep easy in your bed. There will be no need for a punch-up behind the bike shed! The tunnel bag arrived this morning from Germany, having languished all weekend in the Parcel Force depot in North London, just 20 miles away! Mad It is a near perfect fit and will do very nicely. I was puzzled at first by the folded sheet of plastic. scratch Then it dawned on me! The ends slip into two inverted pockets within the main compartment, thus making a sold base. Idea Jolly clever stuff.

I'm glad you're happy with it, you don't really need those two big female Velcro pads to stick on the tunnel. A packet of those big adhesive Velcro discs from Halfords do the job just as well, about 3 or 4 either side of the tunnel. Smile

Agreed. Velcro can be good stuff, but large areas make it a pain to remove the object in question. All that ripping!!

I think I'll fabricate a fastener under the key and and maybe add a bungee around the seat hinge. I doubt the bag will fall off.

Cathy, I just got mine delivered. It seems well made--better than the Cee
Bailey I had on my Burgman 400 several years back. Problem is they just closed down their Customer Service for the holiday weekend and I didn't get the male part of the snap that should go on the lower dashboard so that the bag's front strap can securely fasten the front in place tight against the bike.

LVScooterBill,


I have ridden with the bag not snapped to the front. Forgot to reattach it after a gas fill up. It stays in place pretty good. I would be holding it with my knees if I was going pretty fast. I'm sure they will send you one when they reopen.
