Wow! Just grabbed one on ebay for $40.00. How cool is that? My discounted price at the dealer was going to be $140.00

I will use this one to permanently attach the mounting straps and Velcro pad for my tunnel bag and keep the other for passengers.

That will make mounting the tunnel back fast and very snug.

You really cannot see the seat with the bag attached. I will post a picture of the seat with the straps connected but without the bag attached. I'll explain:

The Tunnel Bag attaches to the rear seat with the help of an attachment pad. The pad is attached to the rear seat with two straps and buckles. The pad then has three attachment straps to connect to the Tunnel Bag (2 in the front and 1 in the rear). The top of the pad and the bottom of the bag also have Velcro to prevent them from sliding around on each other.

That system is OK. Just OK. The bag is secure in that it will not fall off but it still can move around more that I like.

So what I did was cut the 3 attachment straps off the pad and permanently connect them to the underside of the rear seat (2 front and 1 rear) with screws and adhesive. Then I cut the mounting straps and buckles off the attachment pad and glued the pad to the top of the rear seat. I used 3M 5200 black. This stuff is permanent and water proof. It's made to be used under the waterline on boats for permanent installations. It takes several days to fully cure but then you cannot remove it. They do make a fast cure version that is almost as tough. The 5200 is not cheap.

Pros and Cons: The advantage of this arrangement is the Tunnel bag stays exactly where I put it once the attachment straps are tightened. No moving around. Con: Once the bag is removed, that rear seat can still be used for a passenger seat. It just has the attachment pad on top (please no jokes about the Velcro and 70's ladies riding on the rear) and three straps connected that can be tucked under the edges of the seat. But if I don't intend to use the Tunnel bag and want a passenger seat, I can just put the original passenger seat back on.

I did look at those also. That should easily attach to the seat and not move around much at all.

The Saddleman Tunnel Bag is a bit taller and more bulky. see below.
