+1 for what Garandman said. Use the right tool for the job. This job can be made easier (more likely to work) for noobs if the shield is held down to a drill press table. The drill press gives you more control over the bit, which will prevent it from trying to dig in too deep when cutting. Alcohol can be used as a lube, which will also stop the bit from grabbing. Spray it on or build a dam from putty around the hole and fill with alcohol. Cut slowly at slow speed.
Having said all that I think you should try the combination of the two out using industrial velcro before you actually drill that Givi. You are combining two separate airfoil systems, and although they are good alone, there is no guarantee they will be better when combined.
ADVENTURE, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
