GPS on offroad bikes
« on: June 12, 2013, 08:28:09 am »
hey all....
I have an Garmin Etrex vista HCx GPS i'm wanting to mount to my KTM 250 for Man and machine and the Roof.
Not sure about the best way to mount it though. I have the touratech mount for it which i'll prob use, but not sure of the best way to actually place it. The break cable is a bit of an issue.
Please let me know (pics if possible) how you mount your GPS....
Thanks!

if u are interested in something no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead, luke warm is no good, hot is no good either, white hot and passionate is the only thing to be...

Rost Engineering (in centurion) makes by far the best brackets for off-road bikes (aliminium and extremely robust) see them here:

Thanks guys - Ended up modifying the Touratech mount, and routing the throttle cable though the mount - works very well - will get some pics
