I need a solution for single up aggressive dirt riding and a more relaxed pace with a passenger. What might you suggest?
The GB can be set further back (right over the top rack) on some bikes but that's not really how it was designed. Assuming you're referring to your 950 this could be doable with a decent sized top rack that's not too wide and a heat shield on each side if you still have the twin exhausts. Can't say for sure it would work for you but it is possible...

The Siskiyou panniers do not need a side rack!

These are the prototype soft panniers here on a bike. The production Siskiyou's are slightly different but same concept.

No side rack and one Hot Springs Heat Shield on the exhaust. Love 'em!

Great for aggressive dirt riding since they are tough and very stable.
