LOL good one

I dig all the technology!

How bout some details on how you pulled off that iphone mount? I've been thinking about how to fabricate/modify something to mount mine in similar fashion and would love to hear what you did.

The case you have now looks cool and the carbon fiber in it will no doubt make your drz faster, but you might want to take a look at the otterbox defender case for your iphone - they are a bit bulky but bomber as hell.

Also, since you've got it on your bars I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you listen to music while you ride? And if so, i'm going to take a second to threadjack and plug my iPhone app, Adaptunes to you - check it out (www.adaptunes.com)... it's only .99 and works well for riding.

Here's my vapor setup! I fabbed it myself and have a gps mount to the left made out of a gopro camera mount clip.

Looks like you are ready to conquer the world with your DRZ :busted:

Most of it is just for testing, logging data into a computer via 7-10 inputs.

haha.

from one extreme to the other.

not the best pic but:

I have bought your app. and will check it out tomorrow. Also I will shoot a few pics and explain how it's all mounted tomorrow also.

I like uncluttered minimalism... :busted:

First I made a plate from kydex, heated and bent to suit my veiwing angle. Used heavy duty double sticky to fasten to the tops of my bar mounts, (Answer) as they are perfectly flat. To attach items I use 3M Dual Lock, I guess you could use Velcro, but it seems kinda floppy to me. This stuff snaps into place for a semi-permament hold. IMG_0234.jpg

Then I hacked a bar mounted iPhone holder and attched the Dual Lock to the rear.

The same to the back of the GPS unit and presto your good to go. The main thing is everything is rock solid, and removable when it's time to wash the bike or being caught in bad weather. Notice the app running in the picture.IMG_0240.jpg

What kind of 12v aux? I was thinking maybe a marine lighter socket

I was told a car gps wont handle the vibrations made by a bike. Is the ipod touch/iphone just more durable?

I've had the GPS for awhile on a ATV, and it's a very cheap model, as far as the iPhone, I'll let you know. This is on a SM.

yep. that looks the goods. mines not quite as nice as that. it has a sealed back and a clip lid with an o ring.

wired direct to battery with suitably low fuse at the battery end.:busted:

I made a mount using that parts express marine outlet. So far it works good, although it's not waterproof when the Garmin adapter is plugged in. It seems great for the money though. This is my original thread on my little project:
