Mounting 1G rotopax to the back (or bottom?) of the cases...

Has anyone else ever considered mounting these to the bottom of the Odyssey cases? I did some measuring to see where I could get a pair of 1G rotopaxs to fit and it looks like if they are on the back they would either block the rear handle or hang down quite a ways... While I was messing with the tape I noticed that the bottom of the wide case would be about the perfect size for the 1G... even the cut case would work if you perhaps made a simple re-enforcement bracket and where ok with having an edge hang under the exhaust (no it does not look like it would get close but even so a thin piece of tin could be made into a heat shield I suppose)

Thoughts?

I like the idea behind MTRider16 having them mounted on the crashbars in so far as the weight would be forward... but they look like they might get in the way... Also I don't think it would work with my style of crash bars...
