    Underseat storage bag

    I had this nifty little duffel bag I got for free when I subscribed to Cycle World some years back. Unfortunately, it was pretty flimsy (as you'd expect from something you get for free these days). It fit PERFECTLY under the seat of my C650GT, so I was looking for something a little sturdier to replace it.

    After I took some measurements I started looking around. Aerostich had an Ortleib bag that was the perfect size, but like all Ortleib bags, it was WAY too expensive. It would've been great as a bag to lash to the saddle as it was pretty sturdy and weatherproof, but since I was looking for something already protected in the underseat storage area, it was overkill.

    I found this nifty little item at the local REI and snatched it up. It's PERFECT. And when not in use, it folds into itself into a handy little hip back. It can also be converted into a lightweight backpack for carrying if you already have your hands full and can't use the handle.

    As the GT model stores 2 helmets, we use his and hers helmet bags for packing items when touring. The rear section is wider than a helmet and can be used to carry tools and tyre repair kit + pump.

    For two-up touring, we use the K1200LT. I only use the C650GT for two-up local rides, or solo touring. The old freebie Cycle World bag fit nicely in the front half of the storage area, and the rear half held my travel CPAP. Or, if I was camping, the tent, sleeping bag and Therma Rest fit under the seat, and my clothing and CPAP would go into the top box.
