    Do you use a top case?

    If it where me I would create a clamp a piece of metal on the back trunk rack and have a telescopic flag pole welded on to that piece of metal from a local welding facility..

    For the folks that Think it's only a Harley thing, IMHO I don't believe that to be true....its showing support for the brace folks that make sacrifices for people like me living in USA, And I am proud to show my support on any type of motorcycle.....

    Thanks for the various replies, even the clueless ones.

    I found and unusual solution to mount a 2 foot by 3 foot flag. The attachment came from an off road enthusiast who sells attachments for marker flags for dirt bikes. They can be found at http://www.zenxteninc.com/. The owner Hank was incredibly responsive. I emailed him and asked if he thought his attachment device would work. He went to the local BMW dealer in Arizona and looked at a display 1200 RT. He then custom made the grip clamps and sent them to me at no extra charge. Check out the photos...

    I highly recommend this attachment for putting a flag on your RT. I got the fiberglass pole at the local hardware store and the flag online.

    I contacted Hank at Xenten and sent him some photos with a tape measure in the picture. Based on that he built me a support that will either go on the rack of my 2011 RT or on the rack on the top box. I just need to adjust the length of the rubber parts of the mount to go from one mounting point to the other, takes 2-3 minutes. I used it on a recent ride where we had some freeway time and some time with 65 mph cross winds. I had to shorten the flagpole from 6' to 3'. When it was mounted on the top box rack, the wind pulled the flag pole to nearly horizontal. After shortening it, I had a spare flag pole, and it worked very well. I'm very happy with the mount.
