I've got an 02 Ultra Classic, wife a 78 BMW R100.
If you went up the Alcan in 05 we might have crossed paths! Wife & I rode from Maryland to Fairbanks to see our daughter at UAF.

Just got a nuvi 295W, but will probably stick it someplace on the fairing.

Zumo 550 & Zumo 665 My alarm clock is sunshine on chrome.

Motorcycles and GPS where made for each other!

I'm a "wonder where that road goes" rider. Having a GPS aboard sure helps finding home, after getting "lost".

I ride a 2001 Kawasaki ZX6R.
GPS is a Garmin 765t.

I made a Stainless Steel plate to mount on the front fairing stay. This allows me to use the suction cup mount.

Ride safe, brothers and sisters.

Harley Geezer Glide

Retired on a 06' Harley Electra Glide Classic with a Garmin 755T and RAM mount. Doing RT 66 in next couple weeks.

'84 900 Ninja

My current ride is a 900

My current ride is a 900 Vulcan. I don't have a Garmin mount, don't think I want one as I think it would be distracting, but I always have it in my pack if I need it.

I ride a Supermoto

I have a DRZ400 Supermoto. I love to ride mostly with the way gas is going its cheaper. I can ride my bike to work and home for 3 days for what it takes to take my truck to work and home again in 1 day! ugggh.

That's the only other thing (not counting more time) that I wished I had in Yukon & Alaska- a 650GS. Notice I said other, as in addition to. smile I saw a picture of a Harley towing a boat once..I wonder..

My car gets better mileage than my motorcycle, but the bike is much more fun to drive! I finally got a new gas cap (not easy to find), so once the weather gets better I'm hitting the roads!

In 2005 we also may have crossed paths. I was doing an IBA UCC on my 02 V-Strom. In 2003 I did the Alaska R/T on my 02 Ultra from Chicagoland.

In 02 I had no GPS, 05 an E-Map and now a Garmin 2720.

I take one with me on long trips, mostly just for that.

In my jacket pocket with earphones.

Would never put it on the bars because of the distraction factor and I think it isn't really compatible with a riding "experience".

(And any perfect riders can spare me the comment that it doesn't distract you while riding. People who text and drive think that too.)

There are only two kinds of motorcycle riders. Those who have gone down and those that will.

Regrettably you the motorcycle rider have very little to do with when this event occurs.

I don't find it anymore distracting than the speedo or tach. A quick glance says it all. Just like when I'm in my truck...

This is the week of Thunder in the Valley if you're able to make it out! My throttle cable snapped yesterday, bike back in the shop. We'll see if I'll be riding or walking to Thunder... laugh out loud

I carry a spare in my storage in the tail section. Cables snap in the middle of nowhere. A 5 minute job to change it.

I'm the only one who has ever wrenched my ride. Been that way from my first scoot...

I don't know enough to change it out, and I want it done the right way. I see that the cable splits in two pieces, not sure how to adjust it properly. Could learn by practice, but I'd be a bit concerned that I may break something else in the process.

Just learn, friend. A 350 cable is not hard to do. It's just minor stuff, and can save you an expensive 'tow', and fix.

Get a shop manual, and enjoy another aspect of ownership! cool

BTW, a Honda 350 Four was my first love. *sniff*

Yeah, I know I should do it myself, but for some reason or another I don't. I have no issues with working on my Jetta TDI (removed the front end already) and plan on doing some more to it soon, but haven't touched the motorcycle. I guess it is a mental block with the bike being 40+ years old, the parts will be hard to find? Car is only 2 years, plenty of parts available.

If the dealer has the part, it ain't hard to find. Look for 'Pick and Save's' as well.

I did not know Pick & Save's have motorcycle related parts.

I guess it helps if one lives/travels in Wisconsin.
