On the rally bikes we build, we re-route the brake lines so that all the moving portion is between the caliper and the lower triple clamp. Everything above the lower triple is fixed to the triple and bars to avoid interference. We attach the line to the triple using rubber-lined loop clamps.

Here's Kevin doing that on his 2013 Dakar bike (pic courtesy RMK).
