Question Who owns this bike with rear crash bars?

I'm not that good at putting pics here in the actual thread, and I hate Windows 10 with a heartbeat. But I DID just post a pic of a bike in the Miscellaneous section of the gallery titled "Rear crash bars?". I was moving around the internet actually looking for pics of a 750 with the luggage rack installed and came upon this pic hidden amongst the myriad of pictures unrelated to what I originally wanted to look at. I do not know who owns this bike nor if the owner is even a member of this Forum but its a nice setup, nevertheless. A long time ago I posted a thread wondering if anyone had fabricated rear crash bars but at that time I had not seen this pic. Now I can see that someone has done it before. I would love to find out who owns this one and talk a bit with him/her about how they fabricated it (along with the rider backrest). So ...... anyone know who owns this?

I should have said that "I hate Windows 10 with a passion." Not "with a heartbeat".

Looks like he's talking about the crash bar that mounted by the rear saddle bags, I thinks I saw picks with someone that had the tour pack. Good luck finding those.

Go to the Gallery, go to Miscellaneous. Its pic #1. This bike doesn't have the tour package. Its got the front engine crash bar AND a rear crash bar.

I know it doesn't have the tour pack, I'm just saying it's the same bars that were used on the tour pack with the hard bags to protect them.

I suppose they could be tour pack bars, minus the rest of the tour pack. I've not really had a good look at a tour pack before. I couldn't really use them as they physically are in the pic since my seat is wider than his/hers. My saddlebags come forward more-so than the ones shown, too. I'd need different bends and lengths to the top end of it. However, I'm also interested in the back rest shown.

I'm kinda surprised by how little (read that as virtually none) information can be found on the Tour Pack. I can't find anything such as a list of equipment came with it. I've managed to find exactly one picture of a bike sporting the package and that picture does not show rear crash bars. I've found more teeth in a duck.
