Just put an entry in /etc/fstab . udisks respects any configuration
found in /etc/fstab; if there's a line there for the disk it's about to
mount, it will mount it in the location specified.

So just:

/dev/disk/by-label/MyBackupDrive   /media/MyBackupDrive  ext4   defaults    1 2

should do the trick fine.
