Need a tripod carrier rack.

I've web-searched until my fingers are raw.

I've got a good-sized camera tripod I need to haul on the GT. Case is about 8" diameter and 31 inches long. The only thing I can come up with is using the passenger grab rails and mounting something horizontal across the passenger seat. Can't be permanent nor in the way of unlocking or removing the side bags so that rules out a solid tube like PVC. Just a simple Y with maybe a quick-release nylon strap over the top to secure the bag would work.

Anyone know of some sort of clamp affair that will do something like that? I've looked at sporting good places and ATV gun rack mounts, but they are thin and narrow and not 7-8" wide for a tripod case. Nothing I've found for the squarish grips on the GT either.

Anything?
