I would like to see a combination luggage rack and passenger backrest offered for the Burgman 650. At the present time you must choose between either the luggage rack or the passenger backrest, but not both.

On my Burgman 400 I have both a backrest and a luggage rack and like that combination. I do not want a top box as it is not as flexible as a luggage rack and also provides wind resistence and increases high center of gravity side area even if there is nothing inside.

luggage/backrest combo

Did you ever find that luggage rack??

Have gotten by with the passenger backrest and the under seat storage compartment. Do have bungee attachments on the handrails so I can carry stuff when I don't have a passenger. Still think the backrest and the luggage rack would be a good combination.

I have a Givi box, with a luggage rack on it. I don't have the backrest, but they do make one for it.

top box: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/givi-monokey-52-liter-trekker-case

luggage rack: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/givi-e142-trekker-52l-top-case-luggage-rack

backrest: http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/givi-e133s-backrest-pad-for-trekker-52l-top-case?utm_source=product&kwd=&gclid=Cj0KEQjwvdSvBRDahavi3KPGrvUBEiQATZ9v0HUMDvrzOahfIp1kHNdGRQAhSlgcerpodk6pOLlxXusaAmFi8P8HAQ&kpid=954591

All this business about increasing center of mass (not gravity) is hogwash. Unless you're putting gold bricks or something in there, it's not significant. I just completed a 4000+ mile trip with the box and everything in it weighing more than 50 pounds, with no issues whatsoever. Really didn't even notice it was there.

By the way, having the luggage rack on the box is supremely useful.
