The Vee is missing the rubber mat for the rear rack, my searching has come up empty, any ideas where I can find one?

Nope, I'm guessing it was removed to install a top box at some point. Other than a wrecking yard my thoughts on replacement are these: Truck bed-liner spray - tape off the areas you don't want painted - spray multiple coats to bring it up to the thickness you want. OR - pick up a rubber front door mat from a dollar store. The discount store ones are cheap and thin. Spray adhesive and/or creative use of nylon license plate mounting screws will keep it in place.

McMaster-Carr (an industrial supply company, McMaster-Carr) sells various kinds of rubber sheet of various thicknesses that could be used as a mat for your luggage rack, including rubber especially designed for outdoor use. Some of it is even self-adhesive. Or, if you can't find a self adhesive kind that fits your needs, you could use double sided automotive mounting tape to attach the rubber to your luggage rack.

I used a similar sort of self adhesive rubber for a homemade luggage rack I made a few years ago. The rubber was bonded to a piece of 1/8" thick ABS plastic, and the plastic was held to the luggage rack by the mounting screws (but you could just as easily mount the rubber directly to the luggage rack itself). In the photo, the rubber piece is the one on the right. It was cut out of a sheet of rubber with a standard xacto knife and scissors.

Or, you could just order a new one from a supplier like Bike Bandit. They have it for $23.00.

It should be oem part available through dealer or Ron Ayers. I have mine off Glee somewhere was given by dealership when they installed Adventure racks and boxes. Stripped right passenger peg bolt too, found it out when was talking out rear shock.
