Adventure GPS mounting option...

Never cared for the way TT's crossbar clamps fit on the Magura tapered handlebars, so I ordered one of Enduro Engineering's universal mounting brackets and was really pleased with the sano widget that came in the box.



The long bar at the top of the picture is included in case you have other stuff that needs a wider perch. A nice option. I just went with the standard narrow perch and it looks like this on the bike...





It can be positioned a bunch of different ways (including up and down) to clear things like cables, larger tankbags, etc. The parts are aluminum, the fasteners are stainless and this thing is worth every bit of its meager $35 price tag.

Quite a bit of nice workmanship going on there for $35.

The only question I would have is visability when standing.
I don't want to get into the "looking at the GPS while riding" debate. I do, others don't.... fair enough.
But if you do... do you feel comfortable looking that far down?

If I'm standing it's for a reason and those reasons usually keep me busy enough. Working it while seated is a cinch and that's what I need 99.99% of the time. So it won't be an issue for me, but as with most things based on rider preference, YMMV.

Sometimes I stand... for no apparent reason.

Arch,

For some reason all I see where your pics are is dots...

Can you still see the Tach/speedo with this mount?

Thanks, Chris

not too sure i like the idea of that cantilevered load hanging way out there on those little 6mm (i think) fasteners. thats a fair bit of weight to have what looks to be about 8" off in space... especially on a vibraty bike like the lc4. might wanna consider adding a third mounting poin somehow to triangulate things and take some load off.

Yea, it'd be spendy if the same thing were made by say the Gadget Guy out of billet, but I guess they just churn 'em out in numbers. As for the smaller fasteners, they're only used for minimal clamping force on the risers, not load bearing. It's all pretty rock solid and I'll bet immune to the vibes. The whole thing is maybe 4" high at its highest adjustment point. Very nifty.
