snowboard on motorcycle

Has anyone here ever mounted or carried a snowboard on a motorcycle before? I need some suggestions on how I would go about doing this. This is a very serious question.

Backpack with straps and some snow tires and you're good to go

Google Steezy Riders. Jeremy Jones and a few others went on a board trip on their bikes, might be some ideas on there.

I think a good question would be what kind of motorcycle? Crotch rocket, would probably need a side mount almost like how guns can be mounted to a ATV/4wheeler. If you have a big fucking cruiser your best bet would be either a tow behind, or trailer hitch mount like you can find on the back of some cars/trucks.

I have tried putting the snowboard on a backpack but I noticed its not very stable and its very wide. I'm worried about the wind resistance the speed limit is 50, would there be a significant amount of wind drag? I'm actually not going up the mountain but plan on riding it to a tram that takes you to the top. I might just go with the backpack idea and just hold up traffic. I hope my snowpants don't melt on the exhaust haha. Its a CBR BTW.

I assumed it was rice rocket. I am going to go ahead and say there will be a great amount of drag (enough to fuck with your riding) and obviously the width would play a factor.

They need to make these for snowboards but maybe mounted higher so when riding a sport bike you can still get some decent lean in the turns.

Actually it is probably high enough, but that would for sure suck to ride with lol.
