Rear-seat luggage extension? (2013/Gen2)

Someone was selling a luggage extension bracket the other day, and it hadn't even occurred to me that such things exist. I didn't like that one though because it replaced the grips with something far less attractive.

What are these things called? Where does one buy them? I'm pretty tempted to just fab something myself but I'd like to see how they normally attach.

Thanks!

It's a rear rack, this one is made by Sw Motech and I bought it from Twisted throttle. It attaches where the grab handles do, and replaces them with the steel side rails.

You can buy one of these - here. We used to buy them from a forum member here, but I think they are sold only thru adv-gear now.

New Rear Rack Option

I have one of these racks.......it's great! I also have givi side boxes and with a really simple modification to the givi mounts I made these work together. I like the look of this more than the givi top box mount. This rack is really sturdy. I got the aluminum version and have never had any issues. It's made two trips to Alaska with a (probably overloaded) 35 liter top box and shows no signs of failure.

I happen to live in the same city as the guy that makes these so I got to go to his shop to pick mine up........it's a full on machine shop and they do some impressive work. This isn't some dude making these in his garage......it's a business.
