Question 1989 K100RS GPS mounting suggestion

Hello!

I obtained a 1989 K100RS a couple of weeks ago and I have been debating where / how to mount my Garmin 2730 GPS. On my other bike, an 83R80ST, I have a RAM mount attached to the bars and a 5" arm to the Garmin cradle. Between the short bars and the K100 dash, there doesn't seem to be much place for a RAM mount.

Then I noticed there are holes in either grip for additional mirrors. This seems like a possible place for GPS mounting.

When checking out the RAM site, it looks like they make two "mirror mounts" but it's difficult to tell if these are made for use without the mirror stalks.

Anyone have any luck with a GPS mount in the mirror holes? Or any suggestions for another spot to mount it?

Thanks in advance!

I prefer GadgetGuy.net mounts. I tried a ram mount on my 91 K-RS but it has hard to adjust clearance with the front faring. So I found this and it works perfectly.

Quick and easy answer - stick it in your pocket with a ear plug allowing you to listen to the directions.
