This isn't my R, but I thought some might find it interesting. A guy at work asked me to help him adapt his golf bag to his bike. He recently traded a newish G bike for a new (or nearly) 1200 Tiger. He brought me the OEM latch mechanism for one of his aluminum adventure panniers and I made this up from shop scrap. It started as 4 pieces of 3"x.375" 6061. I made two hooks to grab the bottom tube of his mount, and now I have a flat solid place to mount a basket to accept the golf bag.

4 pieces bolted together with the OEM upper latch by the bag mount.

Lower mounts adjusted, and latched in. The Triump latch actually has a red/green flag that moves with the strikers, and indicates green when fully engaged.
