Garmin 276C mounted finally.

After riding for so long now with my GPS aboard on my other bikes, riding without it seems weird on the Strom. So Ive finally gotten with the program and got the mount installed on the Vee. I first tried the mount that I use on my KTM, its the one where you bolt a fake 1/2" crossbar to your bar mounts and then bolt the mount to it:


I didnt like it though as it blocked the intrument panel completely:


So I removed it and just installed the Touatech mount as intended, now I can view all of the idiot functions as well:



For now, I just wired in a 12 volt plug to power the unit with since I already had the power cord for use in the cage. That might change in the near future as I'm not real crazy 'bout all the extra cord:

Bikes in the stable now:
'02 Strom 1K
'07 525 EXC- New DS bike!
'02 KTM LC4 640- Retired DS bike, now a 'tard bike.
'01 KTM LC4 400- Wifes 'tard.
'06 KLX 250 H6F- Wifes Dualsport
'03 Honda VTX 1800 Torque Monster.
'00 KX 500- 60+ H.P. and 220 lbs!! Thats what I'm Talking about!
