That only holds the GPS and provides 4 AMPS-compatible screw holes, though. You'll need an AMPS compatible handlebar mount. I went with a kit from GPScity.com (http://www.gpscity.com/ram-mount-gar...unt-steel.html) as it had all the pieces and I didn't have to search the whole RAM catalog and then forget one piece.
These were the parts that I used for the Montana install on my 2010 GS:

I got all the parts from gps city, save the BMW 3-pin connector for plugging into the factory GPS connector.

3. RAM Mount Rectangular AMPS Plate B-Ball RAM-B-347U
