Make your own, even if you buy the alu sheet and get a workshop to cut it for you itll still cost less than $40 :D

Just be careful with the weight on the top box, known crack point from what I hear.
And where might a fellow like me find such a glorious spatula?

Pre 2011 bikes have a weakness in the rear sub-frame. Search on here for full details
2014 KMT 690 Enduro R and 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure R

Because you can never have too much of a great thing!

There is nothing better than seeing a 20 k bike with a home made rack with a milk crate attached
And the bag will be on it when I need it , then in storage ,FFS.
So it will be visible, unfortunately , I don't have a cnc machine, nor the smarts to operate one,
So I bought a trick looking one from Ktm, for cheap dollars
Got the rack, so everyone can lie down and take it easy
Just thought Wolf or Altrider etc may have one
Please, no more !!!!
Go out in the sunshine and ride !

just posted on something like this that looks pretty good at a glance.

http://www.ventura-mca.com/products/com ... ckets.aspx

Has two mounting bars that can add a grab rail or a sort of sissy bar rail for adding a bag.
worth a look I think.
