You can pick up a "bar buoy" at any marine supply store.
It has a silver dollar size medallion that can be screwed in or double stuck
to the area that sticks out toward you about 4-6 inches below the handlebars. Then the bar buoy slides into that medallion and swings in all directions, keeping your cup steady even in turns. Here it is on my bike. (This is an image from my album, linked in my sig if you are interested.)

Other people use the colapsable cup holder common in automotive stores and boat stores, and mount it behind where your feet go at the back edge of the running board, on the side. Then they flip down when they need it.

Still others use ram style mounts and attach to their handlebars.
Not my favorite but there are those who swear by it.

The bar buoy is more bulky, but swings.
The colapsable cup holder is a permanent mount but doesn't swing.
The handlebar mount is handy but could also be in the way.
You decide what's important to you.

Also as far as positioning goes, consider whether it is important to
you to have an electrically heated mug for your drink.
If so, your location choice may be influenced by wiring route from the mug
to your power source.

I use the Kruzer caddy cup holder on all my bikes. Classy a little pricey. I paid about $40 for mine. bought 4 so far for all my scoots. but work extremely well. On the S'wing I used the one that is for the goldwing. It hooks up to the 2 screws that hold the brake levers on. It can be mounted left or right.

the only drawback is it will not hold Large cups. cans aand 20 oz. plastic is OK.

I bought a stanley thermos cup at wally world and it fits perfectly. And helps keep stuff hot or cold.

Here is the holder.

http://www.kruzerkaddy.net/products.html

Edit: looking at the site it is the "Kustom kaddy that fits the S'wing, Goldwing, Reflex. it also fits the Burman (put on on a lady friends)

Hope this helps.

I don't use a cup holder cos I wanna save that room for other farkles (which I don't have, heehee)... I used to wear a Camelbak but hated carrying it on my back, so now I use a Camelbak bottle instead and bungie that to the right side of the bike and wrap the hose around my waist and clip it to my belt. That way when I need to, I just lift up the hose and drink from there and put the hose back down when I'm done. Many folks in the IBA rig up insulated coolers and drill holes in the side and put in refrigerator tubing and then add bite valves at the end to make their own 3 to 5 gallon hydration system.

I use a Camelbak Mule with the optional insulated hose.

I freeze 1/2 to 3/4 of the Camelbak bladder depending on temperature and length of ride. On the morning of the ride, I take out of the freezer and run the screw cap under the hot water to open ... then add cold water to top off the bladder. The optional insulated hose does help keep the water cold longer, but the tip is not insulated just rubber capped. If I have not used in a little while, the first tiny sip I spit out to remove warmer water from the tip. The ice remains all day and the water is very cold.

I do not carry the Camelbak Mule, I place on it on the passenger pillion and crisscross the shoulder straps to the and snap to the Givi TB-19 (or you could used raise buttrest or backrest) and the waist straps around each side of the aluminum hand rail and snap in the middle.

The Camelbak never moves and the hose is easily accessible while riding.

What I came up with, and it works well for me, is a bottled water holder. I never drink water while I'm moving down the road, just to dangerous in my opinion, and this makes it easy to grab a quick drink of water while I'm stopped at a red light or fueling up. I found this bottle water holder for $1.00 and I made the spacers and bracket.
(Sorry about the first picture).

Do you need one? I sure like it and it's been a life saver in those hot PGR missions. cup holder Icon_sunny cup holder Icon_sunny cup holder Icon_sunny
I just place a bottle of water in the freezer the night before the mission and install it on the scooter the next morning. It stays cold for most of the day.

Okay, I just gotta chime in on this one!! What a Face

Riding a GW i saw bike after bike with this ginormous cup on the handlebars.
Everyone swore by it. I bought one & plan on getting the wife the smaller 20oz version for the Swing.

Beverage Butler!! YESSIRREE!!! I fill that cup w ice water or coffee & go!!
I replaced the straw with 3/8 surgical grade tubing long enough to reach my face. The end stores on the little pressure release valve when not in use.

No more pricey than the cruizer caddy and a damn site more usefull!! cheers

I like Dan's idea best myself. Having the cupholder automagically swivel as I turn seems ideal as does having it off my handlbars (besides my iPhone 4 is mounted there for tunes and GPS). Thought I let others know that the one he suggested is out of stock and may very well have been replaced with this one which I ordered.

Also nice that it's in black and red to match my Swing.

I use a Road Runner cup holder on my Goldwing... Nice thing is that it will also mount to a Reflex and the Silverwing I own too..

You get a cup and mount that fits on with just removing the two screws on either side your handlebar.. It takes 2 minutes to install and verify.

Best part of it, is that the ring can be removed for when you do not want to have the cup holder showing and is easy to remove.

Original Price: $84.99
Sale Price: $69.99

Or you can get one of their scratch and dents for $49... I just picked one of the "scratched" and could not find any problems with the cup or mount..

Somerled, Laughing
I haven't seen this post in a while, and yes the one you purchased is the actual one I purchased. I just didn't think the color made a difference at the time I looked for a link. I've updated my post with the current information you provided and added a picture of my bike with the bar buoy installed.

I'm another who uses the CamelBak. I have a 3 liter model with insulated hose. Like Dennis, I have never been comfortable with using a cup while moving.
One word of caution, don't use a carbonated beverage in the CamelBak!
On one particularly hot day, I had drained the Crystal Light Iced tea I had in the CamelBak so I stopped at a McDonalds and bought a large drink and filled the CamelBak back up. Not thinking about it I filled the CamelBakl with Diet Pepsi. At first, no problem but when I started riding the vibration caused the carbonization to pressurize the bladder. When I bit the mouth valve I had a Diet Pepsi injection system. Smile

I have a similar story.
When I was much younger and more foolish than I am now, I bought a set
of Snow skis and poles. The poles were unusual in they were hollow and
set up to store liquid, with screw on tops. Essentially flasks.

Well one day on the top of the mountain at a lodge, I got a Jack and coke,
and put it in the poles, oblivious to the carbonation problem.
About half way down the mountain the pressure was too much.
My plastic screw on cap exploded, beaning the head of my friend 20 feet in front of me that I was skiing with.

How about a Butler yoke converted to a ram mount and the Butler sip tube replaced by a Camelback Pure Flow tube with a Bite Valve for use while wearing a full face helmet.

Funny....I like to pay attention to riding...worked for me over 1.5 million miles.

Bottle of water in "tank" bag or in top box works fine.

To each their own. I imagine there are plenty others like me who appreciate such things on rides down south where triple digit temps are the norm.

I agree, Dennis - you should put it in your parts list. I'll be ordering one in a month or so...

Well the cup holder Dan suggested arrived and I'll probably install it this weekend. However I did want to give a nod to the under the seat notion provided you have some means of insulation. I bought a bag from ScooterLogic that nicely fits in the helmet recess that is fully insulated and waterproof so you could put ice in it if you wish. That was what I used just yesterday and today on a 850 mile round trip ride to Tempe, AZ. Very nice! Certainly was appreciated at rest stops.
