  1. DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Hey folks! I am sure this has been discussed in depth, however, I have been searching the forums and cannot seem to find anything definitive. I would like to hard wire the Tom Tom Rider handlebar mount directly to my 2014 1000. I want to leave my 12v free for charging other devices. Can anyone...

    I've been looking around for a GPS for my new vstrom, the motorcycle specific units from the major distributors seem pretty pricy. I'm wondering what other people do? Should I suck it up and buy an expensive garmin / tom tom or are there are good other solutions I should check out. Also, for...

    I'm going to jump an order a Zumo 590LM or 595LM and I'm curious to see what mount you would recommend. Photos are always a plus :wink2:

    What navigation solution are you using on long distance rides? Phone mount? GPS unit? Which models? There must be GPS threads in existence already, but this website's search tool won't accept the three character string "gps" as a valid input. Links/references appreciated.

    My compliments to Richland Rick for his marvelous GPS mount. It fits great and puts the GPS in a nice protected, easy to see spot. This is the third item I have bought from him and all three have exceeded my expectations. :hurray:
  9. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Thanks to Black Lab, Greywolf, rcacs and a host of others for info on how to wire a GPS, put new tires on and change the front sprocket.
