Attaching a surfboard to the V Strom
I know I know, this sounds ridiculous. But I plan on surfing down the coast of the Baja Peninsula, and I don't want to rent everywhere I go.
My plan is to buy one, strap it on while continuing down the peninsula, and sell it when I move to the mainland.
I don't plan on speeding at all with the board strapped on, just a means to slowly get around and keep the surfboard secure. I have ratchet straps I can use to secure it to the hangers.
I found these hangers that will hold up to 45 pounds, so these should do the trick
The attached images might help a little bit.
Here are my questions:
How can I attach the rear hanger securely to the saddlebag without drilling fresh holes into it?
How can I space the front hanger out from the engine guard and still allow it to hold the weight.
Honestly, I'm open to any suggestions about spacing, mounting, anything really.
