Check out the SW MOTECH 350 drybag.
Superb quality and 100% waterproof.
I have been using this regularly and it's a great product. Very easy to mount and remove it, from the bike. Carries a lot of stuff.

Thank you. I have bought the Claw now. SW Motech looks great. But, a bit expensive though.

I recently purchased the Held Agnello Tank bag from Lazy Ass Bikers (LAB's), Mumbai and must say that I'm thoroughly impressed with it's features and build quality. Currently it's out of stock from LAB's. Pasting the link for those interested to go through it's features -

For the previous tank bags owned or even the ones available in the market, I couldn't find a waterproof one, except for the SW Motech which for 20k is ridiculously expensive IMHO. This piece is for 9600 and has a waterproof internal compartment just like a dry bag, which clearly helps. And best part it's magnetic, so no nuisance of any chords tying around the bike at all. I did use it for my ride to Igatpuri and back (250 Kms) and it was an absolute breeze.

Here's a pic of my RC390 with the setup I finally decided upon:

Top Rack from Zana (Delhi) - Pretty strong with a well designed 3 point support on each arm. The rear section is easily flappable to accommodate a pillion rider.
Case - SHAD 37 - Good quality case with space for one FF Helmet, Jacket, Gloves and a few other items.

Total spend - Approx. 16k

Never imagined a set up like this on an RC. Looks well integrated but then will the handling will be negatively impacted due to the set up at the rear? Curious to know since RC is mostly preferred for its agility and its fondness to sweep the corners.

Thanks for sharing the details nonetheless.

Ride Safe,

Hahahaha. I know. I'm not the typical customer for a RC either across the 40 year mark. I found the bike eminently fun and comfortable to ride, so wanted to make it friendly for some touring. I initially considered pannier style bags, then the Claws, but wanted to maintain an option to seat the pillion while maintaining the looks of the bike, so settled on this option. The best part is, being a Shad, it's one press, to take off the entire box when you're in the mood to have some fun.

For the handling, I've found that the box does affect aerodynamics when cornering hard, but that shouldn't be the driving style when touring. Secondly I've increased the pre load to account for the additional drag

Doesn't this affect the way you get on or off the bike?

Yes, it did!
Initially I was getting on and off with a weird stance, but soon I figured out that if I stand closer to the handle bars I can still swing my leg around, and since that realisation, no problems at all.
