    BassPro sells them through their online store. RAM mount. I think ebay will have them too.. It's a must have for the adventure bike...

    So I can deduce that you have a Garmin. Which model?

    www.radioworld.ca has Ram, so does www.gpscentral.ca , and www.gpscity.ca

    But there are other choices for mounts, especially for Garmins (very popular with the bikers), so before you jump on using a Ram, please let us know which model you have.

    I have a Ram for my 2720, but I only use that on test bikes. On my personal machine, I use the Garmin Bike cradle mounted to my own mount that I made (you'd be surprised how easy it is to make that part if you have the specific gps attachment). And then I hard wired it into my bike. On other bikes, I clamp on the Ram, run my own power cord set up, and I'm good. Only takes a couple of minutes to do, and I'm off.

    So what do you got? :D

    HI again - I posted the model yesterday in the subject line-- Garmin Nuvi 250.

    Sure is chilly out there - even the heated grips might not be enough for me today! See you at 10 Mike!

    Sorry, missed that. :D

    Nuvi isn't waterproof, so you'll need to watch that. The Ram mount for it isn't up to off roading, from the one I mounted on a buddy's M109, so you might wanna get something different.

    The Streetpilot 2720 can be had on ebay for $108 usd, plus shipping. Waterproof, rugged, and the case was common to all the 2k series Streepilots, so there are some very good mounts for it. Will come with the latest maps, as well.

    Were you riding with a KLR up near Yarker today? If so, I saw you both heading north as we were southbound in the cage house hunting.

    No. He decided a Fazer 750 was a better dirt machine. :lol3

    I'm waiting for him to set up his GSXR 1000 for the dirt.

    It's only a matter of time. :D

    I just bought the Nuvi a couple of months ago, so a new one will have to wait for now--thanks for the info.

    I was riding with a KLR but I don't believe that we were as far west as Yarker - we did go up 38 to Verona and then east and north. We had a great day - 300 km and a lot of backroads. I was cold about 30% of the time. Tonight my eyes are burning, despite the clouds and visor.

    What does "in the cage house hunting" mean?

    Another ride tomorrow to the county with Mike and Tim if they don't leave too early?!

    38 to Verona is pretty close to Yarker...about 7 mins west, thereabouts.

    I was out on the DRZ-SM this evening, loaned a buddy of mine my old CB400 Hawk and we ripped up to Westport for dinner.

    Great ride. COLD.

    Means " in the car, house hunting"

    Cage means car.... Cager is a person in a car.....

    Watch out for cagers, they don't seem to see bikes..

    Of course --in the car, house hunting!! I used to work in Napanee and a lot of people there hunt, so when I read Verona area, I read the phrase as: in the "cage-house", hunting.

    This is a good awareness test: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47LCLoidJh4

    We drove through Verona around 11 am - highly likely it was us as I hardly saw a bike all day, although we did chat with another KLR owner, the "Mad Chef" at Maberly - great food at the restaurant there, by the way.

    Want to rent my house this fall while you get your new home built?[​IMG]
