Cradles

Just a short note to say the Concealex cradle work great. Rode thru Colorado and some of Utah on my WR250R. Rode off rode as much as possible. Total of seven days with no problems. The cradle did a great job holding the 60CSX in place thru all the rough riding. Again thanks for a great product.

Thuderpig and Hardroad - Thank you!

Thanks for the kind words guys - much appreciated....

I'm glad they are working well for you - I'm still liking mine. It really is a decent setup for me, and I'm just glad I am able to make them for others. Losing a GPS sucks, and these hold onto them, and they handle pretty well in the cockpit. I just got back from a weekend getaway with my wife - she has to do without me for a time while I'm off galavanting on the Montana 1000 and West Fest (what happens to a guy at a "de-noobing"....) :-O

Anyway, you guys have all been really great to work for as customers, and I really appreciate every order, and all commentary.

Thanks again.

Sincerely,

Stovey

Off to the ADVRider Montana 1000 and West Fest

Hiya,

This thread is at present 6 pages, and there has been some good information exchanged here - my thanks to all who have posted. If there's enough info here to answer your questions about things, and you want to order a cradle for yourself - please go ahead. I won't be online at all for the next ten days, and so I will not answer personal messages and e-mails until then, after West Fest. But I should have cradles ready to ship then, if anybody sends a check, and a note with their screen name and a mailing address, I'll mail cradles out when I return.

I should have a few on hand at West Fest to sell also, if anybody is there and wants one.

Thanks for all in the meanwhile, and I hope a great Summer riding season is happening for everybody. In a few hours, I'll be passing through a radioactive cloud of brushfire smoke at the INEEL site in SE Idaho on my way to Darby, MT. I can feel the joy already!

Sincere Regards,

Stovey

Thanks Guys!

My thanks to the folks who got cradles from me on the MT1000/West Fest gatherings. Especially to Masterchief, Huzar and Timmer. Let me know how it goes for you and stay in touch.

May we ride together again.....

Bobzilla,

I need to actually get my hands on the new 62 - I believe the form factor is the same as the 60-series, but need to examine it, especially the backside for the way they make the battery compartment. It may be identical to the 60-series, in which case I'm already good to go on my current castings and moldings. If not, I will get to work re-tooling because as you say, it is definitely worth it to continue to make this cradle for them. They will no doubt be the next gen of most prolific hand-helds in use, in my opinion.

Timing has been tough lately, with the release of the 62 series coming at a time when I've been too busy to scope a dummy or get my hands on an actual copy - but I plan on having that sorted out. If anybody can confirm or deny the exactness of the new 62-series form factor for me, that would be appreciated until I get my hands on one.

As for the other Garmins, I just haven't had time to tool up for them yet, and no specific plans until I get the 62 sorted out. I did rule out the old Rhino series though, for those who still hang on to those - I don't plan on re-tooling for them.

I'll post back, but in the meantime, if anybody has the beta on the 62-series form factor, shoot me a pm or post up here. You're a daisy if ya do..... ;-)



Thanks for all,

Stovey

the 62 will not fit a 60 mount.
but
it still uses the post on the back . I think you will only have to change hole size and or location.

I think I am going to try the 78. only reason is that the power cord is the old 4 pin and the 62 powers with the microusb which I dont have a good feeling about using off road

Team Ruptured Buzzard supports our troops...

... and as it turns out, I was humbled to receive a gift from an active duty Airman who just finished a tour in the sandbox. Imagine my joy to find a mission flag in my mailbox yesterday, replete with a presentation certificate from the air crew of a C-130 E/H "Spooky" gunship of the 737th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron recently returned from Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. It was an honor and my privilege to do a very, very small favor for a guy standing guard over there on Memorial Day, and it made me feel good to tip my hat to him and the lads. To my surprise, I got the honor - he sent me a mission flag signed by the senior air crew; Pilot and Co-pilot, Navigator, Flight Engineer and both Loadmasters. Aces all, I tell you!

Team Ruptured Buzzard continues to salute you, and all of our service men and women. Thank you for your service, now and always.

Safely here, because of you.

Yours in Allegiance,

Dave Jankowsky
Team Ruptured Buzzard

Received check in the mail..... thanks Pete! Also hope to ride with you again - unless I take a torpedo in the side, I'll see you again out there, and the drinks are on me my friend!

Rally on,

Stovey

Update on new cradle offering... Garmin GPSMap 78

This new marine handheld looks like an excellent unit, and it has much to offer the Adventure Rider. I just tooled up for production on these Garmin 78's and hope to have a limited supply on hand soon.








Meanwhile, I have cradles on hand for the Garmin 60-series. Will also be offering a cradle soon for Gen 1 SPOTs, and there are two more I am working on but will not announce until the tooling is completed.

Thanks to everybody for their continued support! I appreciate all you guys...

Sincerely,

Stovey

78 mount.......THE SHIT!!!!!!!!!!

Holly shit this thing is a work of art. You really know you stuff Stovey.
Pic to follow but I got to work right now. You have saved a trip for three of us with your expedited devolopment.
I am sure the wreck that breaks this mount and GPS will put me out of riding. BULLETPROOF!!!!!!!
fit and finish ......perfect
Thanks
PS forget the 62 series to update you 60csx , go for the marine 78 unit and still keep the robust power cord you have come to love on the V and 60 series' we now have a bomproof cradle

Bobzilla will ride again....

Thanks a bunch for the kind words Bob - it was a pleasure working with you on this. Wish I was going with you on the upcoming DS adventure! Have fun, be safe, take pics, and get lost.........

A motorcycle, a tankful of gas and a GPS - and enough $ for a can of beer... the nexus of many solid trails to mayhem and chaos. We don't live forever, so making good tracks is the only way to go!

Stay in touch and Rally On my friend,

Sincerely,

Stovey
