Holds back of bike up while removing rear wheel

I've seen photos of a metal rod that helps support the back of a dirt bike for rear tire removal on the trail. Anyone know what it's called or where to purchase one?

Rear rack

No tool bag, no rear rack on my 2008 XR650L. I need a rack, but not anything too big. Just want something I can mount a bag to so I can carry tools, spare tube etc. Suggestions? Thanks.

Wow WR!

Incredible ride report, but it's the performance of those WR's that is just amazing! I'm unhappy with my F650GS and I'll have to try one of those WR's.
