Default Luggage rack for Tallboy seat equipped sporty

Does anyone know of a larger luggage rack that uses the standard quick release mounting points that would suit a '13 model sporty with the tallboy seat?
The tallboy seat mounts to the rear most seat screw like the normal 2 up seats do.

I'm planning a trip around Tasmania and would like to carry the touring bag closer to me rather than have it hang right out the back above the end of the mudguard.

Cheers Ladies and Gents!

Check out Pro Pad Luggage racks. They may have something that fits. The RAXX brand.

I'm not sure about the Tallboy seat, as I've never seen one in person. But, my luggage rack fits with any of the stock seats I've tried and my Mustang wide solo.



See this thread for more details.

The HD quick detach rack kinda works with the tallboy seat, but it's not a very good fit. (apparently I cant figure out attaching an image)
