DIY Cup holder on 2012 S1000RR

I searched near and far for a cup holder solution for my 2012 S1000RR because I like my Starbucks and I dont like being "trapped" having to finish my drink before riding. My needs are likely not the same as everyone else's.

Needs:
1. A cup holder that would carry a Grande Starbucks coffee 3-4 miles from point to point. Access whilst driving is not needed.
2. If the coffee spills I would rather it be on the ground, as opposed to making my paint, gauges, triple C, forks, and everything else sticky.

Want:
1. Foldable, where it was not really visible as a cup holder when not in use.
2. Inexpensive. I do however pay for quality as noted by my bike decision
3. Hold Tall, Grande, and Venti
4. Be able to see the drink while driving with minimal contortions, so rear mount out of the question.
5. Easy to install
6. No new holes in my new bike

Solution:
1. Buy folding cup holder from Amazon.
-Price: $6 (free shipping with amazon prime) American Technology CH-00100-BLK-1 THE MUGGER Black HD Folding Cup Holder : Amazon.com : Automotive
2. Drill one extra hole in cup holder to match second hole in foot guard
3. Rivet said cup holder to right foot guard using two aluminum rivets and two washers on back side of rivet.

Estimated Install Time: 10 minutes

Unexpected Feature: Coffee never seems to get cold Might not be a great place for a cold beverage, although the exhaust gas seems to miss the cup in reality, and with the factory pipe it would not receive thermal effects.

*Note: I removed my exhaust because IMO it looks "stupid" and the bike sounds better without it. This was not necessary for this DIY.
**People who black out their license plate number for internet postings are clearly suffering from paranoia and need medical attention and medication. Why not black it out while you are riding on the street, especially before cutting me off, wheeling past, or generally riding like a tool?

So many things came to mind, in fact I had to look at those pictures quite a few times.

Where do you put your right foot when you're toting you coffee back home? Guess you gotta hang your foot on the peg by the heal or something?

I wonder if this would pass Tech... I may have to just go out and buy one of these, throw it on the race bike, put some starbucks down there and get a look on the faces at Tech Check while I'll roll up

My foot fits fine [ size 12 ] with coffee installed. If only my arm were longer I would have taken a shot with me and my feet on the bike. Maybe tomorrow I will round up a model for said image. Remember this is a short duration beverage transportation system, and has not yet been approved by WERA, AMA, SNELL, DOT, or NASA. Its a $6 "I am carrying my coffee and you are not" DIY.

Thanks for the feedback.

Baffling! You removed your exhaust because it looks "stupid" but added a cup holder to your heal guard! lol..
