I've been talking to a frame shop about having a structural subframe made to eliminate the concern. He was asking about where the failures have been.

Would anybody else be interested? PM if you would like to be kept in the loop about this. Its still early in the process, but should have a cost estimate in a couple of weeks.
I got one... my friend fabricated brackets that sit on top of the subframe that bolt all the way through.. the tail is 100 times stronger now.. well worth it if you want luggage.
