Hi all,
My first venture into the forum so please be gentle!

I have a 2008 R1200GS and am setting it up for a trip from Hobart in Tasmania, Australia to Darwin in the Northern Territory and return. The basic trip is around 12,000km.

My lovely wife will be travelling with me and we have vario panniers and top box luggage.

My question is.....

My wife will be freshly recovered from a fairly long illness and is finding the standard backrest on the topbox a little uncomfortable.

Any suggestions for a replacement? I will probably end up going to an upholsterer and having a softer, plusher replacement made, unless someone has already solved the issue by simpler means.

I am also looking for a bag that will hold my tools and hang between the topbox rack and tail light. Is such a beast around??

Many thanks

Kev
