Default Golf club rack?

I equally love to bike and golf. Do any of you golf and carry your clubs on your bike? What rack do you have?

Did it once or twice. Put my necessary clubs in a "Sunday" walking bag, balls, tees, ect... in a separate small bag. Bunge cord from my driver's backrest to the rear truck.

You'll get strange looks.

Seen a setup for GoldWings that fits rear fender probably in a small hitch. Plastic bag holder, goes straight up like a flag. REALLY looks weird, but if you are intent on doing it often, might be worth it.

Google "Golf bags on Motorcycles" and you'll see some pretty wild setups.

I have seen some pics of actual racks but wondered if anybody was running one?

In a recent MC magazine, I saw a product mention for a set of clubs that come apart and fit into a bag that looks like it will fit in your side case. Don't remember the mag, maybe Rider or Motorcyclist or RoadRider.

I seen a guy on a HD a few years ago who had them sitting straight up with the bottom of the bag on the right side passenger floor board and bungy cords to his passenger back rest. Looked strange but it worked for him.

That rack doesn't look half bad now if he just made it to fit the trunk supports I'd be away in the spring..

I know it was for a completely different set up but more of an inspiration. How are your fabricating skills?

Looks like the bag may block the tail light/brake light.

That has always been my first question on a golf bag carrier. Does it block the rear lights? If so, no go! My answer to carrying my clubs was to buy a small golf bag that I could put over my shoulder and across my back. Worked great and used it many times on my bike. However, that is only good for short, local trips. Would HATE to have to long haul it that way! Would bungee it with base up against my backrest if I had to do it on my XCT, today. I do take my clubs on long rides nowadays. But, you have to understand that I travel with my best bud, who rides in his '39 Pontiac hot rod! life is good
Regards, Jim
