Grab Rail for spudrack

I recently sought a rack for my K1200LT and got lucky when another Aussie member had a spudrack that he sold me and is even delivering it. Now I would like to get a grab rail similar (or same) as the one that A & S Cycles have for around $93.00. Any and all leads will be welcomed.
One thing I notice with all these racks is slots all go lengthways but if you wanted to tie a bag on would they not be better if they went across the rack?

Re: Grab Rail for spudrack

Spudrack, grab rail? Am I the only one lost in translation? Over 50 hits on this thread and everyone understands what's being asked? Usually I'm pretty good at deriving meaning from local vernacular.

Re: Grab Rail for spudrack

A Spudrack is used to carry potatoes to market. It's made in Ireland.

2013 BMW K1600GLT (I love this bike!)...
2005 BMW K1200LT, a/k/a "Fat Bottomed Girl" (traded for 2013 K1600GLT)...
1998 Honda VFR800, the finest sport/tourer ever created...
1978 Yamaha DT400E, because I just can't leave the sound of a two-stroke behind...

Re: Grab Rail for spudrack

A grab rail you can make it your self for a few bucks. Buy a 1/2" round Aluminum bar. Bend it in lenght and hight as you need or like, drill a 6,5 mm hole in your bend end and thread it with metric M8 (8mm). Check the distance between the holes and drill two 8,5 mm holes in the same distance in to the rack on any position as you like it. Fix the rail with two 8 mm screws to the rack. If you dont like to work with metric sizes covert it to inch 25,4 mm = 1 "

Re: Grab Rail for spudrack

I have one of spud's racks, and just use one of these bungee cargo nets. Works great.
