Question VStrom 650 ADVENTURE Series Rear Luggage Rack

Has anyone had any experience with Precision Motorcycle Rack for the 2015 650. It replaces the stock rack which is pretty small. Their rack measures 13" deep X 15" wide with lots of places to secure items.

Any comments appreciated!!!

I have the rack and like it much better than stock aside from one small problem.

I have a 2012 650 Adventure with I believe to be the SW Motech quick lock luggage rack system, there is a support bar that goes over the back, right behind the seat, under the luggage rack. Because of this placement the strapping points on the new rack directly behind the seat fall right over this support bar and leaves no room to get a strap through it. Easily remedied with some spacers, just haven't got around to doing it.

I didn't want to start another thread but...

Looking for ideas for a medium size case or soft luggage bag to mount to the rear rack. I'm not a fan of the huge top cases. Something to hold my jacket or some groceries, beer etc...

I have a Bestem top case, affordable and I like it. They come in several sizes.
There is a lot of information on top boxs and soft luggage here is one thread.

Typing is a different word search will probably find more.
