Installing a Garmin 2820 GPS

I just ordered a new Garmin 2820 and have a few questions....
From what I've seen here it looks like I'll be needing a "cradle" and motorcycle "mounting kit".
I already have several 'Powerlets" to plug into but do not understand what other componets I need to actually mount the unit.

Where do I buy these? (web address)

You will need three things:
1) A mount of some sort. There are several available. I use a Techmount #30996.
2) The mount doesn't include a cradle. RAM makes one as does Garmin. I use the Garmin model since it has a little "Security Screw" that gives me a false sense of security.
3) Power cable.

Garmin has a combo with both the cradle and power cable to:
