Hi. Looking for some advice on luggage rack for MP3 for touring . I have an older model with the rear compartment lid. Want to go long distance, dont want the top case, just a rack to strap a bag onto. Thanks in advance.

Don't know of a rack made specifically for the MP3, but most likely you will need to invest in a top case rack in order to mount a luggage rack.

I sometimes just use sturdy straps to just strap a duffel bag over the rear seat.

This is what I use after a bit off fiddling to get the double-locking clip in the right orientation. Its long enough that I can loop it over a couple times then back on itself to secure larger bags. The 18ft default strap can be a bit long but it can be used with shorter lashing straps provided its strong enough.

Or just the cheap version

To-do this do not close the seat all the way, just lower it enough that you can put your luggage on it but can still thread the straps under the seat. When done right you can access the under-seat storage without having to unstrap the cargo.
