    Drink holder on my R1100RT

    Here's a few pictures of the water bottle holder I cobbled on my R1100RT. I already had the accessory shelf, so it was just a matter of taking an aluminum water bottle cage from my bicycle, bending it, then mounting with stainless steel hardware.

    With the bottle in the carrier, it does block my view of the 'battery idiot light' and my left turn indicator, but the all important 'oil light' is still in full view. Some sacrifices had to be made!

    Total cost, (not including the shelf or water bottle); about $12.00.

    Not bragging, just sharing some ideas.

    No idea! They were on there when I bought the bike. They look interesting so I leave them on it.

    They're grab bars for pulling up into a handstand.

    They help for positioning your head properly in order to use the straw. You don't want to polk your eye out do you should you hit a pot hole while sucking?
