Does anyone have any info or review on the ram mounting system that mounts to the clutch reservoir?? I am thinking of one with a cup holder.

Thank you, the cost is much more reasonable than the BMW cup holder.

Use these... they cost next to nothing and can be used when you get off the bike too! :)

Slap them on the side of your tank, just ahead of your knees, and go...

They are at a perfect height to get at and adjust for the diameter of different size drinks.

Save yourself quite a bit of money and they don't look bad at all!

Jack, great idea, I just so happen to have a gift certificate to Cabela's. Have you ever had a problem with the suction cups holding at high speeds with a heavy cup in??

I have the Bass Pro version of this, LOVE IT, works well unless you put a taller bottle or cup in it, tends to turn upside down. If you consider the price difference I will deal with that.

I have a RAM mount (clutch/brake master cylinder) for my GPS. Excellent quality, very adjustable, stout, easy to mount, and very reasonably priced. I would definitely buy another one if needed.

Hi,

No, these things STICK, but they also have a little plastic tab
so that when you want to release the suction and don't want
to use your fingernail or something to scratch the paint, just
pull the tab and off they come!

I've never had problems with coffee or anything, up to 20 oz.,
and even picked up a 32 or better sized sweet ice tea just
recently to bring back to a hotel and because that one was
top heavy (skinnier at the bottom to fit the holder) it wound up
leaning in towards the tank and when taking turns, the liquid
naturally pulled down and out, keeping it pitched in like that
and never wanting to tip back or outwards. That said, I don't
usually drink slurpee's while driving... this was more a 10PM,
we just got to a hotel and were eating on the cheap sort of
thing.

Just remember though, coffee is THE MOST viscous substance
on the planet in that no matter how little you have in a cup, it will
find it's way out of it and all over you, your keyboard, etc., LOL!
Oh, and at room temperature, it's always ice cold unlike water
which is... room temperature?

Have fun!

Was at Cabelas yesterday and picked up one of these. Tryed it out today with a medium dunkin donuts coffee. It worked great. For $17, you really can't go wrong.

I thought about a cup holder, but then realized that what goes in must a short time later come out! Since I have to stop anyway, might as well just drink at one stop and then get rid of the drink at the next stop. Now, if there was a way to put a relief tube on the LT al:rotf: ong with the cup holder...

Jack, this is actually a fairly common device often used by men who for medical reasons are not able to wear adult diapers and a foley catheter is not appropriate. Condom catheters are non-invasive so are much safer to use than in-dwelling catheters. Much less risk of urinary tract infection. You might be able to purchase them from your local medical supply store. I did notice that the website recommended they could be purchased as gifts. Whoo hoo! The perfect gift for the man who has everything!

FYI, I think Christmas is covered for me this year!
