New V-Strom GPS Mount and other ADV Accessories

Hello all:

Just thought I would share a new "farkle" install. If you are looking for a solution for mounting your GPS to the dash, this may be it!

The company is called Outback Motertek from Pickering, ON. They are quite new but have many V-Strom associated accessories in development. https://outbackmotortek.com

I purchased 2 GPS mounts at $40 each from them https://outbackmotortek.com/product_details.php?pid=12 and not only do they offer Free Shipping US and Canada / limited time), they also include tax and a Ram ball!. This is really an unmatched value and an offer that can't be missed. All components are aluminum and powder coated and match the factory finish, so they look like they belong, not an afterthought. I have a Zumo 550 and a Montana with the rugged mount, both are rock solid.

Shipping was lighting fast and the whole process was seamless. The units were installed and a 2010 DL650 and a 2004 DL1000 with a MadStad bracket. Since my installation, the Ram ball has been changed to a RAM-B-337U for a streamlined appearance and new spacers are being manufactured for full compatibility with the Madstad bracket.

Great Company, Great Service, Great Products.... you really can't go wrong

Very nice. Will they make parts or adaptors for other bikes as well?

It's very similar to a plate that was available from a European manufacturer 5 or 6 years ago. I think the execution is a little better though.

The one available from Twisted Throttle is pretty simple.

Mine works very well.
