Mounting your GPS. was created by Mr Blue
Okie Dokie, now i've got a new all singing all dancing GPS, and was wondering where all you astute Old Bulls mounts yours for ease of use and so it doesn't end up as trail trash?

At the moment mine is mounted sorta in my bar pad but still sits proud of the pad and in the event of an endo or flip I could see it becoming rather hurt.

Part II of my question is
Alittle while ago i decided to take a nap in a tree, at speed, the reslting damage hurt some bits but I fixed them except the Speedo, now Yamaha want my firstborn in exchange for this basic piece of Cwap that looks like it came off the model T, has anyone any idea wether you can use your GPS as a speedo legally?
Mine is a Garmin Dakota 10 with large speedo and tripmeter display as one of the windows, so legibility is not an issue, neither is accuracy, I did a running test with our road meauring devices, after a kilometre there was 3 metres difference or less than 0.3% error, definitely more accurate than a standard mechanical or sensor drive speedo.

Thanks Blokes in advance

Hey CEL, I've only ever used location GPS, never mapping ones, but so far I'm wrapped in this unit, user friendly +++, and solid as, but not sure it could take being stomped into the ground by a bike, and Rego's due in June so I'm a bit reticent to get another speedo when this is better.

that's a good looking slim mount, unfortunately I don't seem to be able to get one like that for mine yet, the one for mine ends up being about 3" high

Interesting question though on the speedo..

I have an after market one that may work with your bike.. What are you riding? (Yamaha?) You can have it.. Go to ballards site and open their online catalog.. ballards.cc/68-page-catalogue It is pictured in the top left corner of page 37...

With regards to the speedo legal question my understanding is as it doesnt add up total klms travelled over the years (for rego records) it wouldn't stand up. Don't quote me its 2nd hand information but makes sense to me.

As far as the GPS mount goes well I use this setup





Mounting in the same place on crashes bike it survived all of his crashes and he is named Crash for a reason

In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away
