Cupholder

Just got my shipment in today of a cupholder I saw on Ebay. No it is not the acrylic one that straps to the oddment case(discussed in another thread). It mounts on the left hand grip mount. I was concerned as I have the CB on that side but for $40 it was worth a shot (beats $150 plus). I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Went on in under 5 minutes and looks great. Nice to have a reasonable alternative.

Does it block your view of the instruments when you have say a can of soda in it? I couldn't tell from the pictures on ebay as the angles all appeared to be from one side or the other and not straight-on from the riders position.

Re: Cupholder

That is the one. He asked me to send a couple pics of mine with the CB. looks like they made it into the ad! My bike is famous now. Man that ice cold Yuengling sitting in the holder looks good, might have to have one.

I just mounted mine tonight. Here are a couple pics with drinks in it from a slight angle. With a can in it while sitting it does not block anything.

Quick shipping on this item, only took two days to receive it.
It is very well constructed and took less than five mins to install.
It hols just about ever size of cup upto a big gulp!
Had my first ride with a hot cup of coffee in 30 years of riding!

Very good purchase!

I like it. Not a gourmet beer by any means, but a good beer. Just started getting it in Ga last week. Better than other domestics.

Even during tight turns to the left, no interference with the tank bag?

I don't know what I enjoyed more, the hot coffee on a cold morning ride, or the faces of the folks in the cars as they watched me sipping my hot beverage!

Love this LT!

At full left turn, fully locked, it does touch the bag (barely). If it were loaded more , I am sure it would hit more.

When the handlebars are in the locked position, it does not touch the bag on my bike. I am sure that, again, would depend on how loaded it is. I usually use mine for a wallet,phone, set of gloves and a pair of sunglasses so it is not that full. Hope that helps some.

Re: Cupholder

Doubting Thomas here,
Even though other posters have said otherwise, it sure looks like it would interfere with something during extreme left turns. I visited the guys website, and from the angle in the one pic, it looks like it would hit the GPS mounted in front of the gauges.

Will try it anyway, and see for myself- just like Thomas did when Jesus told him to stick his finger in His wounds.

For the price, I could possibly mount it on my HD if it doesn't work on my LT.

Hey, Frank - are you the *Patent Pending* holder of this bracket invention, and also the eBay vendor? If so, I'm thinking it'd be nice if you'd sign up as one of our supporting vendors since you're marketing directly to the K1200LT crowd. Do you have any plans to adopt a mounting bracket for the K1600GT and GTL model BMWs??

Dick,
If he isn't the same Frank he has the same first and last name.

From his WEB site: My name is Frank Ellering. I purchased a 2010 BMW K1200LT. My friend had a cup holder on his Gold Wing. I of course had to get one too. I went to the BMW dealer and inquired about a cup holder for my bike. They told me they could order "a real BMW" one and the price would be $153.00!

Re: Cupholder

The BMW K1200LT: on what other bike can you keep the RPMs up until she sings, lean her in the twisties until the pegs grind, ride her like you stole her, AND enjoy a hot cup of coffee all at the same time?

UH? Excuse me, I must have dozed off for a while, back in 2009. I thought that was the last year of the LT in the US. Did I miss anything else?

Tips,
That was part of the reason I posted it, no 2010 that I know of either. I left out a bunch of other non interesting stuff. Nice that he is making a farkle but as Dick suggested maybe he should help out a little.

I figured you were on to the 2010 gaff, John. That one wouldn't slip by very many of the guys on this site. I was just glad to get to fire the first shot.

And actually, I think Frank's new cupholder may have some merit. It may be just the thing for a lot of guys. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and trust that he didn't know any other way to plug his new farkle, to the perfect audience. But thanks to Dick, he can probably understand that there is a better way.

Re: Cupholder

This is from a post I made in May of last year, I have been using this cupholder since before then, and have been using it constantly through now. I have used it for cold drinks on very hot days, and hot drinks on very cold days, it has NEVER fallen off or even thought about falling off. Yet is is a snap to remove when you don't need it. Plus it is out of the way and easy to access, and I doubt it would get near a tank bag...Cheap, and great product! (I'm a user, not the maker, seller, marketer, or commissioned sales!)
Oh, and no holes to drill or bolts to put on!

I bought a liquid caddy drink holder from Bass Pro online.
http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/s...__SearchResults
This is actually a pretty incredible item for $20. It comes with 4 different attachment bases, one for a handlebar (2 sizes), one clip base, one velcro strap with rubber backing base, and the suction cup base. The holder is actually well made, with a machine screw attaching device for the cup holder to the base. The forum entry that I initally saw, the LT owner had snaked the velcro strap around the handle bar near the brake reservoir, I tried that, but couldn't get it to go, even at that I was less than impressed with the holder hanging from the handlebar. I later tried the suction cup base on my windshield. those suction cups hold on like gangbusters! Only problems were that it was kind of hokey when I wanted to raise or lower the windshield. Lastly I tried putting the suction cup base on the side of the "gas tank" This has worked out great. It doesn't interfere with my knee when I ride, it doesn't clank around on the handlebar, and I can put it on either side of the bike. Just a little spit on the suction cups, and IT DOES NOT FALL OFF! It is also damn easy to take off and put on. I do it a lot, and it still hangs on at all speeds. I like it, and it really works for me. the holder can also extend from the bottom, to make it deeper for long items like water bottles and my coffee cup. Pretty cool!

Re: Cupholder

If you're willing to make your own bracket, the folding cupholder is common in runabout boats. Here's one for $10.

I haven't tried it myself, but migh be a next winter mod.....
Looks very much like the cupholder in the original post of this thread. The "maker" of that holder states that he buys the holder and fabricates the mount. Maybe West is his source.

Re: Cupholder

just ordered mine from bass pro the other only had it in white .
I think if I spent over $50 for a cup holder I would just spend the $100 more
and get the BMW one .Still may get one but will try the suction cup one first.
Now if I could only get a Comm system and CB radio like in the pics I would be
happy , never had such a hard time to find the right parts.

Re: Cupholder

The best cup holder for the LT is the BMW factory unit. As has been pointed out the price is NUTS! I use the factory holder that I bought through the classifieds on this site at a much reduced price. The bad news is that you might have to wait until one becomes available.

Mine lasted over 8 years and looked new when I sold it. Every 6,000 miles I cleaned it and oiled all moving parts, really! There must be at least a dozen... It always worked well and stayed out of the way unless in use. Definitely not cheep though.

I happen to have a N.O.S. comm system still sitting in the box that I am willing to part with. I believe I also have an extra BMW cupholder that I am willing to sell.

Drop me a PM if interested.

Re: Cupholder

buy the RAM mount set up. Much better and can be adjusted to multiple angles.
