I dont know, i havnt bought it yet. Soon. (Soon cant get here quick enough) It looks like a one piece seat/pillon. There is a very large rack area behind the pillion.
I like your idea. Post pics when your done please!
I gave it some more thought and it may be easiest to get S&S couplers installed on my bike over the winter and convert the bike hard case to a top case using top case mount hardware. That way i can still stow gear in the saddle bags. The width of the bike case is only slightly wider than the diameter of the wheels which should be inside the extreme saddle bag to saddle bag width.
