Default 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.

I'm curious on this as well. But it would be for a dual sport. *going to google now
