    Show me your R1100RS GPS mount setup please

    Guys and Gals:

    I am going to Phoenix in mid February on vacation to see a good friend.Who happens to own a '94 RS. The 10 days I am there the bike is going to my mode of gettin' around!!!

    I intend on taking the Garmin with to help with the navi duties in a strange city. I figured I would buy Steve a ram mount ball or some sort and a USB outlet to power any thing he would use on the bike for phone/Navi.

    What did you guys use for a setup on your bikes??? I have a 11RT with a ram setup on the dash shelf AND a 11GS with a ram ball that has a U bolt to wrap around the bars to hold the Garmin on that bike.

    The RS is a different beast altogether for that type of mounting....Any ideas please???

    Have an RKA 19.5 Liter SuperSport (expands) from about 3 years ago that I started with (see image at RKA site at http://www.rka-luggage.com/A08%20BMW...S/R1100RS.html - the blue bag on the blue 2003 R1150RS.

    Then got prototype from Rick Battles at RKA which has a metal plate to back the top cover and he then fab'd a mounting plate that swivels (up / down) and mounted Garmin nuvi 1450.

    It is close by and out of sight line for normal riding - then an easy, quick glance down and it is in focus with my gradient bifocals.

    I'd think the easiest temporary solution, particularly if you already have RAM hardware, would be the RAM ball that fits into a handlebar bolt, like this one: http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/1...-60mm-M8-bolts

    This won't help

    Since you asked, and the bike matches quite well, I'm replying with what I did.
    I seriously doubt he'll want you drilling holes in his bike but here you go.
