Title: Handlebar cup holders ...
Post by: Mango Jack on August 17, 2019, 06:45:40 am
Just when i thought i'd seen it all...
Handlebar cup holders as adventure bike accessories...
I wonder if comes with a long flexible straw...
Guess works for countries that dont enforce helmets
Or at least riders with open face /flipface helments

I wouldn’t mind one. Stop at the garage on the way to work for a nice takeaway coffee to have at the office

Could work for a water bottle with a sportscap, why not.

First get the bike. Then you add the cup holder.

Ja maar n Harley is so stadig, jy moet kort kort iets drink anders sal jy dehydrate tussen fuel stops  :imaposer:

 :imaposer: but still requires: a straw (I.V. drip pipe or a open / flip up helmet...
lol - maybe one can "bluetooth" / "wireless  connect" the liquid from the cup / bottle to the mouth in the helmet
possible option - : a thermal camel pack for coffee.

Most state in the US do not require riders to wear helmets. Only spectacles.

I saw these, but just assumed it's for sticking in limbs broken off in accidents, to ride to hospital with.

Perhaps a large model for a leg, etc.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have stumbled upon the possibility that it could be drink-holders.

Met this Guy in Mozambique.  He has ridden from Saudi Arabia through Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania Malawi and Moz on his way to Cape Town.  Had a fancy cup holder on his handlebars:-

On a bike like this, a cup holder won't be noticed amongst the hugeness.

Most of the Harleys I see here in Florida have cup holders.

I see the riders drinking from coffee cups, and even soda drinks all the time. Of course helmets are seldom worn, so drinking while you ride, even smoking, is commonplace.  :thumleft:

You have obviously never tried to balance your nice hot cuppa, fresh from the Wimpy, on a bike standing on its side stand.   ;)

 :biggrin: @ The Bear, I sure have and that has it's challenges to avoid falling over or spilling.
best is hold coffee cup in hands while bike is parked - this has a  dual purpose - keeps hands warm tooo, especially in winter & doesn't spill
After GPS mount, Aux power (cigerette plug & USB chargers), handguard brackets, Handlerbard cushion, & the normal speedo, clutch & brack clamps. ignition key ---there is no space for a cup holder (with without straw) :o

Ja.  Best to hold coffee.  Then you need two hands to light a cigarette, or take a piccie and then crap starts!   ;)

This cup holder concept intrigued me. So I gave my scoota a xmas gift. Low budget, homemade beer holder, which works. Handle bar can be fully turned and used as prior. No impediments there.

When I race in rallies, I carry 2 litres coffee and 1 litre water.  The coffee goes in an Osprey bag.  It can take the heat.  I don't carry a camelbac bag, they are too small.  I have a small climbing backpack.  Its not really insulated, but I work my way through 2 litres coffee fast enough that its not an issue.

Wrong side of the handlebar, you need to let go of the throttle everytime you take a sip... :deal:

I use my left hand. Right hand stays on throttle. I placed it there in order to give my left hand a wide berth - I do not want too much spillage, you will understand.

And the handle bar can then simultaneously support my left elbow, while sipping my precious liquids.

With this mod you can have your favourite mix while riding and being able to use both hands for other purposes.

Come on, you want it to last, savour the experience. Not drink it all at once. That’s being gluttonous (which is a deadly sin).  :imaposer:
