What keeps you going safely and speedily? Is the info right where you want it? How would you <like> to see your information displayed? Anything you're planning on looking into- RAM Mounts, mounting systems, dashboards, clamps, cups, hooks, holes arms, struts, trays, posts?
How did you decide the placement of any XM, Radar Detector, GPS, trim rings, custom keys, mounting systems, from homebrew to RAM Mounts, anything that you've laid out to help your riding be the safest & most enjoyable it can be?
Here's a few snaps of my 2000 K1200RS cockpit setup, before the SS brake and clutch lines were installed... I use rechargeable models of the TomTom and Escort- the charge lasts over 12 hours on the TT, and the AA's in the Escort Solo last several weeks... I use panasonic rechargeable li-polymer AA batteries, and this 'cordless' setup eliminates, at least for me, the 'hot-wiring' issues I want to avoid, even though I've got a hardwired RJ-11 line for my old Escort 9500i, since sold... a few issues I'm going to tackle in order to 'evolve' this setup... I'm soon trying two RAM Mount Long Arms, at 5.25" each in place of the 3" and the 1.5" arms, to see if I can keep the radar detector and the TomTom out of the airstream and well behind the oversized BMW 'Comfort Screen', but above all the gauges... although it's easy to quickly glance at the fuel and temp gauges when I need or want to.
I'd like to get the GPS, especially, into my lower eyeline a bit more without obscuring the speedo face, despite my using the GPS to show me my speed in most cases now anyway. Call me old-skool... The 'A-Mount Dash', (http://www.cyclegadgets.com/Products...p?Item=AM-DASH
), made by Brad Coleman in Oregon, is a nicely finished aluminum piece sold by www.cyclegadgets.com
and made by a fellow K1200RS rider, is rock-solid- no vibrations, with a versatile RAM Mounting system, for a little over $150.00.
So... what's goin' on right in front of you? Anyone want to share their setups? It *could* help a fellow rider enjoyment/safety down the road, no pun intended...
