What happened to DR650 ebay bbq racks?

I've been looking for the DR650 tail racks on ebay everyone has talked about and couldn't find any. All I found were a couple narrow racks:

Are there any other relatively inexpensive but decent tail racks you could load a big duffle bag or large hiking backpack on?

Thanks!

I have one that will be for sale shortly....an original one in very good condition.

If I get any PM's on it.....I'll give them priority when I do put it up.

I have that exact rack on mine, works perfect and it'll easily handle 40 pounds.

I sold my BBQ rack, too wide and too ugly.

How wide of a duffle have you strapped on it? Due to the lack of support on the sides I would be seriously concerned about burning the bag on the exhaust. I have seen more than one bike burned to the ground because of that.

I use a roll top duffel that is plenty stiff when loaded so that wasn't been a problem for me, but, I agree that should be considered in your choice.

I used to use a thin piece of wall panel board inside the base of my old duffel to stiffen it.

That works better than the cardboard most bags come with.

Keep watching eBay for this seller to list again.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1996-...item4ced947df3

Better design than the original BBQ rack since it can be reduced down to normal size for around town use. Haven't seen any reviews on it yet though so unsure about the strength and/or quality.

I'm not sure which ones you're refering to, but if it's this one:



The guy said "I'm old. Screw it." and retired. I asked him.

Yes I'm retired now. Partly because sales were slow this year because of the economy and also I was tired of working. 30 years in the welding business was long enough. I tried to find someone to purchase the business but no one had any money so I ended up just piecing everything out. Sorry.
