rear flat rack for 919 options?

Just got the bike... have seen the mounting stuff for hard luggage, but am really looking for some sort of flat deck that can cover the passenger seat out to the tail. just so i can lash down a small lunchbox type cooler or a rectangular flat bag.
All I'm seeing are racks that mount at the grab handle and then stick out the ass-end of the bike.

That cause that's all there is unless you custom fab, but the givi is a good starting point very sturdy.

I use a Ventura rack. It's pointed forward most of the time, but it can be mounted either over the rear portion of the seat, or over the rear toward the tail.

Same here. Works great.

Sport type.
Shorter hoop.
The grab handle is removed and replaced with two brackets that attach to the sub-frame via (4) 8MM Socket Head Cap Screws.
These are plenty strong.
The only thing I don't really care for is where the bracket passes through the bodywork, a foam "gasket" is provided which looks like hell and is pretty much useless.
I started to design a better solution, but soon learned to live with it.
