Cup holder

This is a must have piece of bike bling.

not is it just somewhere to put your special brew but it pisses other bikers off so much that it is worth the $65 just for that.

nobody seems to mind too much the electric stand, the reverse gear, the cruise control or the central locking but the cup holder really sticks it to them.

please get one immediately just for the crack of it.

$65.00 is a steal. Up here they are $192.00 CAN. Now we all know our dollar is a lot closer than that:-)

I was also looking for a drink holder, but out here in the desert a cup or even can holder won't cut it for me, so I fabbed up my own. It will hold a 1 liter bottle and mounts using two screws that are already there, behind the mirrors. It doesn't interfere with anything except the movement of the lower air deflector, which must be in the open position to have the holder in place. I coated the thing in the plastic dip stuff. It isn't as cosmetically perfect as I'd like, but when I get time I'll make another set. It did fine on the maiden voyage last Sun, so monday I made one for the right side too. I can now have 2 liters in easy reach. I don't know how to attach a photo yet, how do I do that? I tried the little "insert image" icon at the top of this text box, but that didn't seem to do anything.
