    Should come with the standard cable from Garmin that can be hardwired to the battery or 12v wire. My 6o CSX did anyway :) Pretty sure it`s a standard thing for Garmin,,,, or at least it would be available to purchase separately

    Err I think the 64 only has USB connector .. and those are very fragile for use on a motorcycle (or even a car).
    The 60 had a far more rugged connector.

    the 64s/t will run from the usb connector , will only charge the batteries if the push button behind the batteries is depressed, this can be done either by purchasing genuine battery pack or taping generic rechargeables together with a lump to activate the switch, 64's used in a RAM mount are very suitable for motorcycle use
