Interesting GPS mount

What do you think of this mount ?

I think it is really sexy. I wonder if it would be compatible with a Madstad...

I thought I saw one like that with a Ram ball mount on it but now I can't find that picture anywhere.

Yeah, I saw it too. It's from Migsel. You can see it here.

It's also available from www.adventurersworkshop.com.

I think I like the first one more. It seems to be built to last forever.

I ordered it for my Zumo 550, it was spendy @ 187.00. But looks like no hassel and should last longer than the bike. Thank you for the link!

Final mount

Rather than viwing all the thumb nails go here to see all the shots in big pictures so you can view the notes too. Sorry I could not get them any larger.

Thanks for the pics !

Is the surface area that goes on the winshield bracket completely flat on the fairing side ? I don't know if you have seen a Madstad bracket, but I would really like to know if both parts are compatible.
