I'm seriously thinking of taking it to finish off the bottom half of the UPAT next summer. I'd need to pack at least a quart of oil for that.

Jackpiner57 has built a one-off rack for another inmate's KDX that worked pretty well. He's going to borrow the bike so he can build jigs in case any other KDX owners want one. A decent top rack and/or a Giant Loop bag would make it overnight capable.
