I just bought a "TomTom" one GPS system to use in my cars. I was wondering if any one knew of any mounts that would work to attach it to my 500R. They make a model called the "Rider" that comes with a bike mount but I don't believe they are interchangeable. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks. ???

I had seen one on e-Bay not too long, its a bracket that screws into your existing screws on your fuel tank lock. Don't remember what it was called or who was selling, but look around on e-bay!

Thanks for the heads up on ebay. Searched a little more on some of the older threads on this site and found some good ideas. Love the info from this forum. ;D

My dad has a mount for his garmen. Mounts right to the handlebars on his shadow. When he gets back from WI ill ask him where he got it.

Re: Manta

How far forward of the tank opening does that hold the GPS? Are you able to use that with a tank bag?

Thanks for the input everyone. I think I'm going to purchace a "Ram" Mount that attaches to the lever bolts. Anyone else have this set up?

So after looking at the pictures with the Ram, you'rer going to install a mount on the bike, this will go to an "arm", to a ball, to the cradle? I'm having a hard time visualizing...

I hav'nt bought anything yet. Give me a link to "Manta" and my mind may change. I think the ram mount may stick up a little high off the bars, so something with a lower profile would be nice. I also like the idea someone posted on an earlier thread, that makes a small dash board across the windscreen, utilising the bolts that mount the windscreen.

Sorry wolf66, I did'nt realise you had already answered my call for help. Guess I was visualising riding instead of reading your earlier post. :-[
