Adventure Stock panniers; Where's the handles?

So, nice stock luggage on the '12 but they didn't put a handle on them so they could be easily toted to the motel room, etc.
So if you have this luggage, have you come up with any handle designs? I'm thinking of braiding some paracord handles

I like that from Twisted throttle! I was actually toying with some webbing today withthe same idea in mind. Started doing a paracord braid but that's alot of cordage!

That is a nice design, I have the flat bungies from Aerostich that I am just going to throw across. I had them to secure tent and bed roll anyway, so might as well use them as handles too.

Also, what is up with the boxes being different sizes? I am going to ride mine home from the dealership in a few hours and it kinda bothers me.

I have textile bags for use inside my TT Zegas, a lot easier and lighter than carrying up the tin boxes.

The rack is different to alot for the the single side pipe. The different size boxes mean it's an equal width left to right from the center of the bike. If you had two of the same size boxes, with the stock asymmetrical rack, the right box would stick out further than the left box.

Ok, made my own handles with some webbing and then added 550 cord square lashing just to make it look different
