Team Ruptured Buzzard - it's how we roll...

Justin,

The only thing better than doing another man a solid in life, is a good dog. I believe in both. Well, that and a great adventure on the bikes, in life, a good woman and a cold Tecate Rojo in San Francisquito. I guess I believe in a lot of good stuff! No reason not to hit you with a cradle. If I'm ever in Bangkok, I bet you'd be be good to ride the river with.

Thanks for the kind words. Rally on...

Stovey

I ask him if his work load and shipping schedule will allow the unit to be sent to me in time as I'm flying out of the country soon. He replies, no problem I'll send a unit off to you tomorrow (keep in mind he has no payment from me yet). No idea whether I'll stiff him or not as our whole interaction has been one post in his thread, giving him not much to judge my character by. That my friends is serious Karma and a whole lot of faith. Hats off to you Stovey for your outlook on things. Wish the whole world was a bit more like you.

Love doing business with decent folk. You're top of my list Stovey, thanks mate .



Cheers,

Justin

They live!

Jwats,

...you're alive! Most excellent, can't wait to hear all the tales from South of the Border... Very glad to hear the cradles were good. Are you the only one who didn't crash? Go back and test it correctly.

Missed ya. Does this mean I can't have all your stuff?


Thanks for the good words Joe!

Sincere,

Stovey

Stovey,

I got to use my cradle last weekend and have a couple of inputs. First of all it takes the same amount of time to locate satellites w/o the cradle as it does with.

My winter gloves are too big to get to the power button so I'll need to whip out the dremel.

And last I think i'm going to drill a small hole through the bottom lip with the cradle assembled to thread my lanyard through. It will serve as a lanyard and keep the 2 pieces together.

But before I mod it at all I'll offer to trade it to anyone with the Kydex version because the CF looks to good on my dirtbike.

Joe is Nuclear - thanks for the feedback

Joe,

Glad you've had a chance to fiddle with it and thanks for the good feedback. I hear ya about the winter gloves - the same will be the case for anybody with fat fingers, but you can't put material back - you can only keep taking it away. So I err on the side of prudence and give enough to get a finger in there without relieving too much. There is room to relieve it further, just be careful with the dreml! A small 6-inch round rasp will be less committing and remove the stuff like a raped ape in detail work, if you want to - FWIW.

Also, the little bumper on the bottom of the cradle is there for "bumping" when dropped - giving the GPS 360-degree protection (exclusive of the display window which is exposed and would need a see-through plexi-cover or something.) That is problematic with glare and dust and production, so I'm happy to have at least improved the overall protection without sacrificing display issues. So the bumper on the bottom protects from impact/dropping and also is a place for a guy to drill a hole to tether and keep the pieces together. I toyed with it as well, and even toyed with small cording that connected all four pieces with the side clips such that the whole thing is "connected" when apart. Lots of options, but for mass usage and general appeal, I leave the bumper a place for people to go nuts for themselves if desired. Glad you are experimenting! (Don't tether the actual GPS to the cradle there though - if you are concerned about losing the GPS for some reason. If a guy wants to back up the cradle by tethering, run the Garmin lanyard out through the side crack and loop it around the ball mount - it fits. That way, if you are backing up for a cradle failure, the GPS isn't tethered to the cradle but to the RAM ball. Just to clarify for those new to this thread.

Also, I received my data from the manufacturer of Concealex, they went ahead and tested the material for radio frequency transparency in their lab in Ohio and provided me with the report. The data shows a dielectric constant that should translate positively in the GPS frequency range, which bears out what field testing has shown - good bird locks inside the cradle with the antenna covered and protected. They have not posted a link to the data sheet yet, but when they do I will provide a URL here on this thread. It was good of them to
do the testing at my request - especially since I'm such a little guy in the scheme of things. They didn't test all the way up to the 1.5MGHz as I requested, and so until I get another shot at a lab, we're relying on interpolating their results (the labcoat guy said he'd be solid vouching for their results and that it should be good to go (rf transparent) for GPS freqs,) and all the field testing that has gone without a glitch.

Did you really rather have the KYDEX over the concealex? If that's the case, shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks for all Joe. You are truly Nuclear!

Stovey

Still free shipping through the end of April

If anybody wants a cradle, I'll sell you one for $75 and mail it to you CONUS USPS. You'll need to mail me a check. Free shipping ($5.65 with tracking) remains in effect through the end of April for ADVRider inmates. After that, I will charge the actual shipping and will use the USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate box.



Thanks!

Stovey

Cocealex 60CSX case

Stovebolt:

Excellent product! Had some problems getting the unit delivered, but that was the Postal Service! Stovebolt shipped it next day air UPS so I could use the unit in Death Valley! He trusted me to get him the funds, for the UPS fee and it arrived the day befor my trip! Thanks Stovey!

If your thinking of using any mounting system to mount a 60 series Garmin, get this case! It works incredibly well! It survived 1200 miles of insane DV riding! We had numerous product failures on the bikes. Aux tanks cracking, lost lights, missing horns, broken racks, broken skidplates,etc, etc.
The nicest feature of the concealex case: Take the GPS off the bike, with the case attached, and drop the unit in the gravel! Duh! The garmin is still protected! Try that withe the TT or other plastic mounts, its not going to happen! Easy to keep the unit inside the tent, hotel etc. The ram mount take all of ten seconds to undo! Take it inside for lunch! Set up the route plan for the after noon instead of the hot sun!
Thanks for such a great product! I only have a small pic w/ the unit mounted! Good pic of the bike! not so good of the product! I'll post a few pic in the next few days!
Later,
PIGPEN

Thanks for the post TJ!

Glad the cradle is working out for you! Wish I could have been on that ride in Death Valley. Reading Ride Reports over Spring Break - lots of great adventures going on out there, and the reports and pics are proving that out.

Stay in touch and

Rally on my friend!

If he sold 2 bikes he should have the $ to buy 1.
Maybe he doesn't want to ride with you?!!!?
