Between seat storage compartment

Have any of the fabricators out there created a nice between seat (upper) storage compartment (box) to replace the vinyl garbage bag provided by Benz? Or will I be the first?
If so please post pics.

You might be the first. Post some pictures of your project if you decide to make one.

What are you aiming to store?

A quick Google search for 'motorcycle bags' turned up a number of possibilities.

I kinda like this one:

Here's the link to that page:
Nelson-Rigg Sport Tank / Tail Bag | Motorcycle Luggage

Let us know what you come up with!

OH, I searched quite a bit

I saw those tank bags, scooter rear hard plastic boxes, large camera cases, & nothing quite fits the bill. I think I'm going to fabricate. It will most likely end up triangularish in shape to fit the space between seats, have built in shelves, with a fold down door. I think approx 3/32" 6061 aluminum should do. Possibly raw finished with a black vinyl wrapped door, & lined inside.
