little rear underseat bag

Hi guys !
nobody found a little triangular bag to fit in the hole under the rear seat of the MVTV ?
It would be perfect to put inside a mobile phone, cash or somenthing else.
Can someone help me ?

I've been lookin at mine and thinking of making a replacement underseat tray to make a small storage space, looking at the way it's fitted it shouldn't be too hard.

Try the Givi site. They do some small bags that fit under the rear luggage rack of a 1200gs and if I remember for a Honda Crossrunner. Not sure of the dimensions though

What about Ortlieb? Their bicycle seat bags should be waterproof, (I've only looked at the website) and although they are expensive, Ortlieb stuff is well made. http://www.ortliebusa.com/ProdList.asp?scat=25

Givi. http://www.giviusa.com/givi-products...leg-bag-detail

This could fit in the space, although not full as there is at most only 2 inches of vertical room, and the space tapers at both ends. It is gray vs. Ortlieb's bright colors, but perhaps the Ortlieb color could be changed without looking ugly in only a few miles.

A dual-sport fender bag could also fit, (not the large though) but wouldn't support the art of the motorcycle at all. Frankly, Givi and Ortlieb are hardly any better.

Looking at MV options, there isn't anything suitable for the space.

I'm new on this forum, do we have anyone interested in creating a waterproof, stylish bag for this space? I feel it's important to respect the design of the bike, but it would be nice to have the ability to carry my registration and proof of insurance without always having the hard luggage on the bike.

Hi Emanuele,
Don't hold your breath!
I've had another look, and whilst I still think it's possible, I'd forgotten that half of the area is obscured by the seat lock mechanism. The sides of the storage area would have to be angled to match the styling of the tail piece, so I think it will be a lot of effort to achieve a tiny amount of storage, maybe just enough for a disc lock and a puncture kit.
I may still have a go at some point, but for now I will use a bum bag to carry a few small items when not using the panniers.

Smile little rear underseat bag

The TV must be the only touring bike without a toolbox. So decided to make my own. First I cut a hole in the plastic blanking plate under the pillion seat. Then sat a piece of artificial leather under the plastic plate behind it, turned it around and stitched it to the sides of the hole with nylon thread. Holds a fair bit of useful kit. Nothing has moved in 500miles of riding.
