Hey Guys:

I have a Zumo 450. My co-worker sold me the mount for it which is on my FZ6, wired for power. I don't think it's a "RAM" mount as it doens't move around.

If I want a second mount for my F800GS, what is my best bet?

http://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Locking.../ref=pd_cp_e_2

That has everything and a RAM mount

http://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Motorcy...3563768&sr=8-1

that has no RAM mount and no power cable.

Which is the best mounting point on the F800GS as to not block anything?

HappyHighwayman,

For what it's worth, I like the TechMounts like Waino shows here:

http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=165

I mounted my Zumo 660 in a Touratech locking mount using a TechMount handlebar mount. The setup is quite adjustable and relatively low profile. When i ordered, the guys at TechMount even swapped out the top plate for me so it would fit the TT locking mount.

Good luck!

I have the Zumo 450...I was going to buy a spare cradle (the other one is mounted on the Yamaha) and then get this:

Any reason why I shouldn't?

GoPro mounts for GPS

I have a Garmin Origon GPS that I attached a GoPro extention piece onto the removeable clip (the Garmin handlebar mount) and use any of my GoPro mounts. This saves me from having to buy different mounts when I already have them. I use the GoPro handlebar mount on my bike and the suction cup in my car. In my kayak I have an adhesive one placed right in front of me. I could even use the Chesty for hiking.... "could".

You're right, the quality and finish do look good, but it seems like a very small niche product, doesn't it? The fact that it only seems to fit one specific model, does not allow any angle change, and possibly obscures the instruments all seem like design flaws to me.

But it is pretty. No doubt about that.

One thought prior to acquire is instrumentation sight line. From this angle looks like rider height > 8ft should be good.

OP?

Hot looking piece though
