Rear trunk on with extended backrest?

I have an 01 Vulcan with an extended back rest from an 89, I have a rear luggage rack and I am looking at getting a trunk for it.
How well does it work the with ext back rests?

Anyone have any pics of a set up like this and can suggest some trunks?

Would prefer a trunk with a small rack on it. Doesn't have to have lights, but the trunk should detach from my luggage rack fairly easy.

Thanks.

Most of the ones I have seen have like padding and cushion for like the passenger to use, it would be a waste and not used because of the ext back rest.
I think it's the mutazu ones, they look nice but I don't want that padding stuff.

Thanks

Looking at the mutazu site I see a DB series, a detachable series, and a DMY series, I must be missing the DIY series??

Wonder were I can find a better picture of those saddlebag guards up front of the bags, mounted to the passenger foot peg thing by the exhaust.
I want guards like that.

Those are the Kawasaki factory guards, but not the factory bags. I'll see if I can dig up some pictures for you.
