In the current forum heading picture, I have just noticed the sloping carrier just above the rear light. I rather like that idea as a quick access for wet weather gear. Is this available as a unit to buy or is it a DIY job ?

I have a carrier like that mounted on the top box lid. Its a good place to store light loads such as gloves/rain gear. I've had it mounted for many years with no cracks to lid or other damage to top box. Ebay is loaded with racks/carriers.

I need something like that for tailgaters. Random things could fall off hit their car.10-15 steel 3/4 nuts maybe. bounce Quick release cable or something to dump them..............

Just kidding. Nice rack.

Good idea though Twisted Evil

However the rack is in the wrong place for me. I'd always be wondering if anything had fell off or slipped and obscured something.

Tailgaters are dangerous to us riders and to themselves as well. What I will do when someone is tailing me is put down my left hand and gently make a slow down or stop motion. Eight out of ten times, the driver will realize their folly and create distance. The other two times out of ten, I'll do my best to get away from them. Los Angeles freeways are usually safe, but there are some real idiots out there driving as if it were a go-cart race.

Just take a coffee travel mug and bolt it to the top of the box, in a "casual" location. Nobody will want to be too close to your rear!

Carry some old lug nuts purchased at a junk yard.  Who's to know that they weren't just kicked up by your tire and hit that tailgater

I like the coffee mug idea. Getting the cager angry can only lead to bad things even if it really was road debris.
