slick. I like that.

where you source the Velcro dots you trust so much?

in the case of the post of the two-bolt RAM base, do to the pressures exerted by the cantilevered GPS unit & mount wouldn't it be better to have the bracket 90 degrees to be in line with the bike?

with all that plastic webbing cast underneath the dash top, it seems the factory had intended stuff bolt on up there- seems careful hole selction could handle a big Zumo/Nuvi.

I do like the idea of Doug R's bracket for going nuclear-proof- I assume that was part of TouraTech's kit?:
