I spoke to Genna at GadGadgetGuy.net
and used his monkey bar setup for the GT. Lot nicer looking than a RAM mount and more secure.
I ended up with three of his mounting platforms.
One of his plates mounts the Zumo cradle in the middle.
The second plate has on of his extensions on it and a short bar holding the plate over near the brake fluid side on the handlebars. I put two holes in that one and screwed them into the bottom where two threaded holes are on the GXM-30 XM radio antenna. I could have used the steel magnetic mounting plate, but I don't move it around as the car has a XM radio. More secure too. The excess wire is wrapped up in a roll and attached under the Zumo cradle and is out of site. All wiring is zip-tied down.
The third plate of his holds the radar detector (same extension an a 3" bar as the right bar setup). He suggested a Garmin Quick Release mount to use with it so I could slip the detector off quickly in case of rain or moteling.
I added some little chrome buttons to cover up the hex-head screws (local Harley shop). Installation look very clean and not cheapy looking (Genna's stuff ain't cheap either! It's made by the same machining company that does the Brembo brakes).
Sorry, I don't do pictures, but he does have some photos on his site on different setups.
