There are a number of threads on this site with regards to a rack. One that has been used us the rack for GIVI top boxes. I think the E96 rack is one of them.

I was intending to put a luggage grill on the top box to hold light waterproofs so that I can get to them quickly.  However, I saw a TTSE with GIVI bags either side of the rear seat on top of the panniers, secured with ratchet straps through the pillion grab rails.   The panniers could be opened / closed / locked / unlocked with the Givis in place and they did not interfere with the pillion's comfort or safety.   No need to drill holes in the lid of the top box.   The Givi were sausage shaped with lashing points.  I think they were  Givi Silver Traipack -T477 Roll Bag but don't quote me.

And one other thing I found out about when I got the seats modified was that there are some attachment points under the pillion seat for straps - they are fabric loops that you can pop out. Should have the read the owners manual a lot closer (one day!)
