Really Cool GS mount from England

First I'm sorry if this is being post already
I check the first 3 pages on a *GPS* search and I did not see it

anyway i think is a great idea,only thing i don't like is that you need to drill holes on the mount but exept for that is a exelent and simple design









I will say MiGSel did pretty good on this one here is the
Whole posting

I'm sorry the pictures did not work because they are on attachment and i'm not got to attach them here for respect to king Baldy

It seems that it would be in the way of the field of view too much. Why don't they just come up with a heads up display for the windscreen or helmet visor.

Yeah that is a legitimate concern but almost nobody looks true the stock screen anyway since is not even optically correct

Maybe you need to come up with one and then try to make into a sellable product

Hey Ricardo........if you read on a bit............ Originally posted by Mike O
Looks excellent Migsel. How easy is it to fit? Is there another metal plate behind the instrument panel, or do you just bolt it through the plastic?

It's not bolted Mike. The holes are for fixing an extra plate on top, if you like to mount an IMO like I did. I put in some "dummy" bolts to cover the holes.
The base plate is held in place by the speedo. So what you do is remove the speedo, put the base plate in place and mount the speedo on top of it. There is a 1 mm collar between the dash and the speedo collar.
I took some pics while I did it, I'll make a little manual. The whole operation shouldn't take more than half an hour.


I think you'll find that there are NO holes drilled........

I've ordered one, It looks the Business

Unless you need a ladder to get on your GS, the gps won't be in your field of view Zeewe. I'm only 5'9" and I don't have a problem with this position at all.

On the contrary, it is a lot safer than on the handlebars. I don't need to take my eyes off the road so much, I only look down a bit. And I can position it better to reduce reflections of sunlight.

Here's the pics Ricky was linking to:

As CC said, there's absolutely no drilling, sawing or cutting involved Ricky. If you remove the mount, it won't leave a trace.

The holes are in the base plate to mount other stuff on top if you like. But I'm having new plates made right now without those holes.

I have an IMO on top of it, but as most people won't want that, I'll make some base plates without the holes.

Cheers,
Michel

you can see what those little holes are for in this pic:

sorry I guess this days I'm not even gettting my name right.

I say England because I was thinking of the UKGS forum.

also congratulation on the Boltless attachment sistem,,I guess I asume again since I saw the little screws,great idea no to have them just so people don't assume the way I did.
one sugestion just for Kicks maybe you can make a prototype with a dual ram mount so you can try to mount two "Gadgets" at ones.

I also love the prototype great aproach

congratulation,,,Now I suggest you start a post on the Vendor forum before somebody comes and Move you or give you a ticket for "Ilegal parking"(was Ricky's fault anyway)
then you can tell people how much they cost and how to get them,another suggestion ANDY from adventurersworkshop in New York is starting a a little online ADVenture shop he already distribute the Tober's maybe you can talk to him about carring them in the states to make the shipping much faster and cheaper

Love to see stuff like this I hope I see one in the flesh soon.

Nice looking product. I wouldn't mind if t blocked the top half of the speedo as I never use the useless thing anyway, I just need to see my trip meter.

Multi-use?!?!?!

Looks like it might be a good way to mount your XM to...all sorts of goodies could work well in that location...would work great for radar to...could add a small shelf on the other side of the RAM mount and then you have a nice accessory shelf as well...Very cool little idea!

actually i think is great in the sense that free up more space on the handlebars to mount other gizmos with less of a need to be view all the time and also remenber the reach issues,,you don't really want to be moving your hand all the way forward to adjust little knobs and buttons all the time i will say keep the bottons close to you and the screens and thing that require you visual attention in a field of vision aling with your forward viewing patterns
