Hey guys and gals, recently purchased a SCR and so far I am loving it. However, for my job I frequently have to bring a suitcase of clothes and such. I am having trouble finding a luggage rack for the SCR and was wondering if anyone here had some suggestions.

I saw your post two days ago and went in search of something/anything for the SCR950 in the way of a rack and couldn't find one.
SW Motech used to sell an aluminum plate that strapped to the rear seat of a motorcycle. Once in place, it was used as an anchor point for whatever soft bag you chose.
I did find this as an alternative:
DrySpec D38 Rigid Waterproof Motorcycle Dry Bag | Multiple Colors Available | TwistedThrottle.com

Problem is, the SCR's rear seat area is fairly small. I'm not sure if there would be room enough and not be in risk of damaging the brake light.

I have two of these that I have used with other motorcycles. Ortlieb Dry Bag Duffel Bags :: Aerostich Motorcycle Jackets, Suits, Clothing, & Gear
They are really sturdy and roll up waterproof with several size options. The picture here is of a medium(?) Ortlieb bag strapped to my former SV650 seat with another bag tied atop that.
Inside was a tent, sleeping bag, a few extra clothes, etc...

I'm glad a thread is being started on this. I travel pretty frequently with camera gear and living in Florida with unpredictable rain showers I've been thinking of the best options for keeping my equipment protected and dry. Right now I'm considering the most simple trash bag around my current camera bag and then tying it down or using a small net to secure it to the seat behind me.

You got me to thinking about how well the Ortlieb bags held up after 10 years. So, I just took the black bag shown above in 2007 and filled it with about 6-8 gallons of water. It was perfectly water tight! If it'll hold water in, it can keep water out! =)

I'm amazed the stitching is so waterproof. When most companies advertise their bags as waterproof, it's usually for the odd rain shower you get stuck in, but your's double as those camel back water bladders.

That remind me of how some good ole american leather products are made which even used 365 days a year through all kinds of weather still doesn't leak or show structural wear. That to me is impressive.

You can always try contacting the company directly and see if they're able to do a custom order for you. Don't know why they would say no and turn down money. If you have any luck with that let us know! I'm sure local shops do something similar.
