DIY RAM Mount for Madstad Bracket

http://youtu.be/L10kITs7nNg?list=UUI...1Mj8jLo7b67dxQ

This is my solution to mounting a GPS with a madstad adjustable windshield bracket. Cost nothing to make that I didn't already have.

The madstad bracket did help with the head buffeting at speeds up to 55 mph, have not tried it at higher speeds yet.

This site is an amazing resource for v-strom enthusiast. But the is so much info, it is sometimes hard to know where to look for specific information. I had a hard time figuring out where to put this, so I decided to put it here. If there is a better place for it, feel free to move it, or let me know and I will move it. Hope this helps somebody.

Tried to edit the title, but I could not. Learning is fun!

Cool idea. Any problem with vibrations or anything while riding?

I have a gps mount that has suction cups that mount to the inside of the windshield. It works well as long as the bike isn't moving. Vibration and the front tire hitting irregularities on the road make the GPS tilt down. It gets worse when dust gets in there and makes the ball slippery! I've been trying to figure out something a bit more rigid.

This mount worked great on a 4 hour pothole filled ride, no problems with vibration, it did dampen the effect of some of the hardest hits. I am very satisfied.
