Dakar 31 liter (BMW) topcase pad?

Hi, it's an interesting topcase with the hinges sticking out like they do. My wife loves riding two-up on our Vespa 300 as the topcase and pad give her a sense of security and comfort.

I want her rides on the Dakar to be similarly comfortable but since BMW doesn't have a pad/backrest for the 31 liter case, I've got to punt. Has anyone else dealt with this and have you any suggestions? I've scoured both Givi and Shad catalogues to no avail, their pads are all too wide to fit between the hinges which is where the pad needs to go since that's the furthest extent of the case (forward).

As always, thanks! Will

Computer gel wrist support and industrial velcro, voila.
