Flag mounts for PGR and Legion Events

I have a new Vulcan Voyager 1700 and have now idea where to mount my 3x5 flag on a 3/4" pole? The only options I see are the frame bar under the Luggage box or the right side lower frame bar. Any suggestions?

Chuckster's Customs. He made my hitch as well as my flag mount. He customized his normal hitch to allow me to fly (2) 6" x 9" flags all the time, and made a flag mount that fits in the hitch for the big flags. He designed the flag mount to hold 1 inch emt conduit (my request). I can fly (3) 3x5 flags at 40ish mph with no problems. Obviously I don't fly them either at higher speeds or when the wind is high.

I am also a Patriot Guard Rider and spent a long time analyzing mounts that others have done with an eye toward something that would work on the 1700 (I have a Nomad). The two best options are (1) a trailer hitch mounted holder or (2) buy a luggage rack and make a flat plate with a holder for the pole to bolt to the luggage rack. As you have the Voyager, I would go with a hitch and a holder that fits the hitch as your trunk precludes the luggage rack approach.

Also, please be very careful about getting a strong pole and a strong fastening system. I rode in a KIA funeral escort on the highway last year and saw four American flags hit the ground in 30 miles. I have seen every kind of half - a$%^& mount in the last couple of years. The National Colors deserve better.

I have a trailer hitch mount on my VV for the 3x5 flag. Best way to go in my opinion.

I got an MChitch. Been pretty happy with it. http://www.mchitch.com/ Once you have a receiver on the bike making the flag mount is not a problem. I did buy an all aluminum mount and pole but the guy I got them from stopped making them.
