How you mounting your Oxford heated grip control box?

Anyone here fitted Oxford heated grips on their bike? I just put a set on my Versys because I've used them on other bikes and loved them. Problem is the typical mount bracket they supply does't quite work on the Versys leftside clutch perch due to the mirror mount being in the way.

I wanted to see if anyone else had any slick ways they mounted the control module for the grips?

Here is link to a bracket I made to hold a remote right there. Its Aluminum from Lowes, bent, and "milled" with drill press. Covered in velcro for remote attachment/removal.

The problem for me wasn't the angle so much as the spacers not allowing enough space on the clamp. I just 3M taped mine to the center of my handlebar clamp. It's actually super sturdy and very easy to access.
