GPS on the Nine-T Thread (Merged)

I'm sitting here looking at the handlebars and I'm not sure there's room for my Garmin...a place where it won't block the instruments. Lemme know if anybody fits one.

I'm looking forward to seeing this bike with added lights, crash bars and electric gizmos.

R Nine T (GS)'s WILL catch on!

I mounted my Garmin 665 right above the handlebar clamp using a RAM mount that replaces one of the Torx screws in the clamp. Sits perfectly centered with a clear view of the instruments.

Here's the mount:

Hm. A GPS is nice to have, but looking at that picture it looks more out of place than the computer screen.

I wonder if I won't stick with taking breaks to stretch my legs and take a look at a map. Heck, that would even give me the opportunity to take up smoking cigarettes again.

I'll take another picture in the daylight for a better perspective. Definitely agree the GPS is out of place on this type of bike, but i'm hooked on GPS these days, so i'm ok with it. I'll post up another picture with the GPS removed so you can see how it looks with just the mount in place.

we're lucky in Tassie, it's only about 3 hours in every direction before one hits a village or town or the island's edge ; in our Colonies we tend to generally only pick a direction of the compass and head for North or so.

Cross9T, you blanked out the BMW logo ... tsk tsk
