Rear T/S relocation options?

Need to relocate for saddle bags.
Who's happy with their T/S relocation? I'm sure there are several options that have been tried.
Is there any consensus on the best and/or simplest?

I purchased a set of relocation F&S Turn signal brackets from a fellow group member here and installed them a few months ago. I sure do like having the turn signals back a little further to allow for more room to open my saddlebags. It was well worth the effort. Hope you cab find a good deal on a set like I did. It was a simple and quick installation.

Here's the license plate mount bracket I'd seen earlier. It's been discontinued from LeatherLyke, is anyone still selling them?

weird, link worked when I tried it.
Found the T/S license plate mount bracket diagram on the yahoo vn750 group page, under files.
It's next to the last file at the bottom.
Maybe this link to the yahoo vn750 site will work or you might have to sign up to join the group to get access??? Good info there too.

I am just thinking of doing the relocation that someone else on here did.... mounting them to the sides of the Taillight housing......seems quick and simple. Then I will just make some custom cover plates(polished Stainless Steel) for covering the original holes where the T/S are at from the factory. Nothing can be put in that area anyways(I have the luggage rack).
