With all due respect to Dennis! We discussed his excellent mounting system via email and I decided to try to refit my standard RAM 1" bar mount to the new SilverWing. The dealer pointed out that the holes matched the female holes on the left brake/electronics housing almost exactly, so with a couple of M6 overlength screws, some washers and 10 minutes work I was in business. I think if I had an iPhone hanging out there I'd want it sheltered more, i.e. using Dennis's system but for my casual use and my Garmin Nuvi 265W (just replaced with a Nuvi 40LM today) I'm hoping this is a good solution.... Steve. Happy Holidays to all!

Forgive my attachments of the photos...I'm learning how to use the forum as I go!

Thanks for sharing. I had a set up just like that before I bought Dennis's mount. I like Dennis's better since it seems to keep the sun off my gps when I use it. I can also hear it better since it is behind the dash and screen too.

Thanks...I agree with both of you. also, the unit is exposed and outside the windscreen and could be damaged in a squall, so I'd not recommend my setup for anything other than in town navigating where you can grab it and stash it at the next traffic signal, but it did only cost me $1.60. (and trust me, you do need a GPS in metropolitan Miami Smile. I probably will go with a better system after the first of the year myself. Cheers, Steve.

I use a ram mount off of the brake handle bolts which is very similar to what you have done. No problem with it. I just did a 5,000 mile ride from Seattle to Mission Texas and back and had no problems with the gps mounted that way on my Goldwing. I have a Garmin 255W and it is not waterproof but it stood up to some pretty nasty weather conditions.

My electric coat, gloves and Frog Toggs kept me dry and warm. I just got back from this trip on the 22rd of December.
