Thanks, saved me from asking :-)

I'm guessing a GPS or MP3 lockable mount.

It's a quadlockcase mount. Works very well.

What seat do you have on the bike. It doesn't look like the factory seat.

How and where did you connect your iphone charger? I am looking for ideas to do the same on mine.

What mounts did you use for the lights on the fork? I have fog lights on the lower crash bars but would rather have them there(forks)as it is a bit lower of a location for less reflection back and a cleaner look..even using my ambers.

Nice ride btw!

My newest addition to the GSW. Since the stock seat sucks after a few miles I took my bike to Steve Gowing in Fort Collins Colorado for some shaping> here is the result.

Stunning !

You could use one of these.


It is a USB port that was purchased from Denver BMW.

Where are people buying the protector that goes on (for the lack of a better description) the "beak" of the bike, just above the fender?

I've seen them, usually in black, and I think it might be worth it to minimize rock chip damage. Maybe not.

Any links would be appreciated.

I think those things are cool looking whether they actually serve a purpose or not. Cleans up the space nicely. Nice Find !
