Penn Elcom 7154K folding handles.

These also work well, but the 7154 is the best

I have a pair of 7154 style handles on my DR250. They look good and work well. I placed them near the center of gravity, somewhat to the front. Also tilted upward rather than horizontal (hoping that makes sense). This makes for a more comfortable pickup and carry. I had pictures online but the photo host closed and I cannot find the originals on my home pc.

Mine had handle holes cut in corners of the false back over the curved part of the horn path. The builder even put a piece of quarter round mounding in there for a comfort grip. It doesn’t get sturdier than that and they don’t stick out.
99% of the time, things that aren't already being done aren't being done because they don't work. The other 1% is split evenly between fools and geniuses.
