Garmin 660 in Touratech lockable mount (tho the locking ability is pointless since its not mounted to bolted on hardware)

That sounds like it would be similar to the TT in that while the GPS is locked in the cradle you still need a way to lock the cradle to the bike unless using a bolted on mount (eg: since Im not using the TT mount my locked cradle/mount attaches to the bike via a RAM ball).

It's not much, but if you replace the adjusting nut on the RAM extension arm with a self locking nut, it keeps the unit from being quickly removed without tools...

Miikka, Sorry for an off topic question, but what's the fuzzy cover on the brake fluid reservoir for?? I've seen several lately but do not understand why. Thanks!

Cheers,
Ken

Thanks! Desierto was my original choise but discovered this sweet Mirage fairing last minute. The dash on this fairing is a nice added feature. Can't have too much space for bells and whistles!?
I'm sure there's a couple of good ways to mount your gps to Desierto...actually I think there's few pictures about it on the Desierto thread?
I really like the position of the gps compared to the handlebar bracket. Way easier to read on the go = less eyes off the road/trail.

Got my forks done:



Been meaning to write a "review" on the Öhlins cartridge thread but haven't gotten around doing that yet. The nose dive feature is history. So far me likey!

You got any pictures of your set up with this thing?

If I understand this - the male is standard oem and available as switched power to run what could / would be BMW 'factory' GPS install.

I was looking for this on the bike and didn't find it - hints?

It should be attached to the battery tie-down bar under your air-box cover. It will have a blank cover that needs to be removed before plugging in.
