Dude...it wouldn't matter where it was mounted on your bike, it'd still get busted up!



Very nice Thumper!

I wasn't so very thrilled with the idea of having it up on the bar like that, I wanted it centered on the bar pad instead, or above the clamp. My bike has that bridge type clamp on it and won't like the mount fit there though. It is easilyt removable with a locking clip though, so only the mounting ring stays on the bar, everything else pops off and can be tossed in the camel back unless it's really needed. Easy to reach and work everything with the thumb there though.

Andrew and I are going to go exploring and I know the valleys and trails in them here can get really confusing and hairy.. figured I would like something with us to tell us where we are! LOL Nice to beable to spot check the GPS while riding instead of having to stop and pull it out to check.

I just hope I don't crash hard with it mounted there! hehehe.. this unit is pretty durable though and waterproof.

Why couldnt you shave some of your bar bad to get the GPS mounted more towards the center and have it in a little more secure place. Or even look for some different top bar clamps on ebay, that way you could mount it the way you wanted to.

When I ride with my GPS, I have it in the little bag it came with secured to one of the shoulder straps on my backpack. That way it is easily accessible for me and there is less of a chance for it to get damaged.

The bar is to fat down near the clamp, as well as the clamp to tall. The mount pops off really easily, leaving just the ring on the bar so I can toss it in the pack when on an area I don't need it and let it track our path that way atleast. Just pull it out and clip it on when needed or wanting to watch something. I may figure out a way to attach it to the bar pad cover itself later on, but for now this will work well enough. We are pretty cautious in the trails anyway, ecspecially when we don't know what is ahead of us. Not to worried about banging it up to much. It will probably spend most of it's time in the pack though. Just pop it on for trail reference in confusing areas.
