GPS mount on a Superhawk? lets see what YOU'VE got!

Hi all

I have a 2610 mounted on a 5.25" RAM arm.....

I'd REALLY like the gps closer to the centre of my taller screen.....

am I right RAM's longest arm is 5.25inch?

suggestions?

here are a few pics kind of showing my cockpit....the V1 was a borrowed item

you want it higher or closer?
Here is what I done - instead of mounting it on bar I actually purchased little magnetic tank bag with special GPS holder (really nice, even with sun cover). So whole thing + charger and small bits sitting on tank. It takes 5 seconds to unplug cable and take bag with GPS and all stuff off bike - handy.

superhawk seats

me again...

corbin or sargent?

i'd REALLY like a back rest for my passengers....that ONLY means the corbin right?


the horror stories re corbin n after sales service and/or fit is prolly not much of a concern of mine way down here i guess as i could never afford to send stuff back etc etc...


any 'hawk owners on here that have experience with backrests?

cheers

Here's my little beauty....1st registered in 2000, purchased last November and stripped down, serviced and fettled with over the winter. Just did my 1st 100 miles on her today - what a nice ride! Been riding for over 30 years now but these bikes missed my radar. A nice stable mate for my '07 ST1300.

That'll work!

I bought a small steering wheel at a swap meet once, and then decided to build a T roadster hot rod to put it on. By comparison you're ahead of the game by already having the clip-ons.
