Mounting for a Garmin Nuvi 5200
A long time ago, I realized that there are few things in life that I am the first to experience. So, here goes:
I use a straight forward Garmin NUVI 5200 in my car & on my bike. This unit uses a 17mm ball mount.
On my '82 Suzuki GS1100, I just installed a handlebar mount near the left control & a 12v socket on the fairing.
Since any handlebar mount that I've seen is not compatible with the LT, I was wondering if anyone on the forum has found a good way to mount this unit on an LT?
Getting power to it is the easy part. Securely & attractively attaching a functional mount for the unit is my interest. I have ordered a self-adhesive mount that has a curved neck with that 17mm ball. I'll see if it works, but I was wondering what anyone else has done?
A good man once told me, "Don't ever get rid of your bike. It's your soul."
