You guys are killing me.....



Anyway, as told in the latest episode of this forever-long saga, I'm given an ETA of May 6 for delivery. I'll believe that when I see it. I have a nice cradle, and no handlebars to put it on!

Dang!

Some recent customers have asked fundamental questions - likely not having read through the 4 pages of this thread and skipping to the end....

So for convenience here's some recap for newcomers not reading all posts up to now:

$75 price.
Available for Garmin GPSMAP60-Series
ALSO now have cradles for Garmin 78's (new in August 2010 - now shipping)

Checks only. Make payable to

Dave Jankowsky
P.o. Box 656
Victor, ID 83455

Cradle designed to mount to RAM mounts - RAM mounts not included
RAM ball only part number = RAM-B-238. But you need the arm and bar mount. GPSCity has all this stuff. Here's a couple of handy links below:

************************************************** ********************
These are the kinds of things you will need to mount my CRADLE -

A RAM diamond plate with ball

The BUZZ BOMB Cradle is designed to connect to the RAM Diamond Plate on the back of the cradle. The diamond plate has a 1.0 inch diameter rubber ball connected at right angles to the plate, which connects directly to the 1 inch arm socket. You will also need the RAM arm socket...

You will also need a way to get this onto your bike, and there a different ways to do that with the RAM system. A common mounting is on the handlebars using a setup like this...

Thats the basics. There are so many options to "get your balls together" with RAM components that each rider needs to sort that out with their own bike. Different handlebar diameters take different sized U-bolts, so pay attention to your dimensions when shopping.

But I will stress that the cradle I make is designed to work only with the RAM mount system. The adjustability and shock absorption and impact resistance of the RAM mounts help keep my cradles "bomb-proof." Mounting them any other way with any other components is recommended against.
************************************************** *****************************

I do not sell RAM mounts, RAM parts. I make and sell cradle only, designed to work in conjunction with the excellent RAM system. I've had good luck buying my stuff from GPSCity.

I pay shipping CONUS USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail to ADVRider inmates for as long as I'm still doing this.

Thanks for all and see you "out there." I will be at Montana 1000 Rally and West Fest.

Sincerely,

Stovey
ps - where's my bike?
