Handlebar cup holders ...
« 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

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

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

 :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!   ;)
