race hooks/tie downs for R12S

A Google search suggests that the usual places (Sato, R&G, etc.) don't make a version to bolt directly into the 2 holes used for the rear footpeg bracket mounting point. I can always use the generic single-hole tie downs, that might look dorky and work OK, but I thought I'd ask first. Thanks. - K^2

I've used the figure 8 tie down straps on my K bike and the only time I've hauled the R bike. Looped in luggage mounts rear and front fork in the front. Are there custom tie down points for the R11S?

I always try to secure the bike for transport without compressing the suspensions.
Axles, fork legs, around the wheels/tires.

Thanks for the replies. I have had no problems trailering this bike thousands of miles. I just am asking has anyone seen actual race hooks specifically made for this bike. I've looked online and not found any, but perhaps someone else has found them. Thanks. - K^2
