Eh? Hardwire for Garmin 78 on WR450F

I recently purchased a Garmin 78 to use on my WR450F. Does anyone have a suggestion(s) for a Hardwire Kit that I should use so I can Hardwire the unit to the bike vs. only use batteries? Thanks!

Dusto! That is a GREAT site! I found the Hardwire Kit I need from the third paragraph on the first page of the site under Bike Prep. It was at cycoactive.com for $39(including shipping)! It's on it's way and I should have it this Monday. I owe you a cold one! Thanks!

yep you gotta do the eastern sierra DS's
for something out of the box you should really do Damon Powells Dual Dog Sequoia Scenic Challenge in June, the thing I ;like most about it is everywhere I go I hear someone whine about how hard it was ....LOL !
I think VCMC took over Dick Allens sierra safari
I have done them all a half dozen times. Rode every singletrack in so cal at least a dozen times, from Yosemite to mexico even secret ones, central colorado and Moab secret trails too
after doing the Nevada 200 several times it started to seem lame, paying $350 to ride around in circles in deep soft sand and get humiliated by Harden and Casey after dinner
so I don't do the sheepherd thing much anymore ,
now I am venturing out farther on the 950
