RAM mounts seem very cost effective and maybe a good starting place.
I chose to go with a "customized" RAM handlebar mount that I devised myself. Its probablly the easiest and cleanest of installations, so if you have a GS with hand guards, you may want to consider it.

Yup, this is it, clean and simple...


And this is what a Garmin 60 Cx looks like mounted as viewed while seated...positioning couldn't be better...


If this is what you're after, then check out my R1150 GS RAM Ball Install Article.

Nice setup. Yet, are you on the deck of a ship when you took this photo or
am I missing something?

Jeff - some more shots and details about the surround on the Vapor? I have been pondering my set up for my TE450. This is very nice.

376C on HP-2

Heres a picture of my HP2 with the 376C and XM antenna mounted.


Shot with DSC-S600 at 2007-08-07

I used the BMW GPS mount along with the Touratech mount and Ram base & arms. the antenna is mounted on a Ram base and arm as well. I shortened an old powercord and connected it with a BMW power plug to the Touratech power point which is mounted along with the GPS mount. It ended up being about 5" long.
XM and voice guidance is routed to the Autocom in my tank bag.
The GPS is well protected from the elements by the Puig screen.

Ride Safe,
Vettster

Ok its not showing the actual GPS since I had to send it back to Garmin.
This is the RAM mount I made for a Madstad equipped Strom.
The basic plate is 1/4" aluminum, I chose this over steel so it would be stiff.
I sandwiched this plate under the madstad, but its cut to work either over or under the madstad brackets.


I installed a basic ram ball and added the 2xxx power cable cover as a holder for the cable when the GPS is not mounted



I used a counter sunk plastic screw to attach the 2xxx cable cover to the available hole in the bracket


A short ram arm and ram bracket complete the system.
I really like the "in your face" above instrument location.
I have also been very pleased with how solid the whole mount system is.

Now I'm just waiting for my GPS to return.

I just purchased a 2610 and it broke. I am now making a mount for it. When it returns I will mount it up and post up a picture.

I ended up getting the Triumph GPS kit from my dealer for very cheap. It came with a mount and wiring harness specific to the SprintST.

Can you show us more pics of your setup (angles, etc) as well as the rest of your electronic setup?

How a broke college student navigates the commonwealth of Virginia.

1978 Honda CT90 + Hand Me Down Garmin V + Two Black zip ties on the brake cable. Voila.

This will be put to the test in GWNF next week. I just got the unit yesterday. I have always been a gadget freak but GPS is a new territory.

^ On that bike can't you just a compass on the bars then lick your finger and stick it in the air?

Kidding! Beautiful bike!
