    Accessory mountings.
    « on: 2017-10-10 23:06:04 »

    Hello all.
    New RT owner of a 08 ex-military police UK bike.
    On all my previous bikes I've used my phone as sat nav, and found a spot to mount a camera (go pro type) via various screws and bolts or handlebar bits, indeed, on my other bike an r1100s I've managed to fit a aluminium bar between the handlebars using longer m8 bolts, and use standard handlebar mounts for both phone and camera.
    However, this isn't a option on the rt, and I can't see an easy way of mounting either.
    I'm not a fan of using suction mounts.
    I presume many others have such devices installed, what methods and options are around?

    Advice greatly appreciated. Really missing my phone on the go!!

        +1. The brake/clutch reservoir one is easy to install.

          I have a 08 RT and find Migsel to have the best
          GPS mount. Not cheap, but well worth it, IMHO.

          I picked the cheaper one.

            I have the Telferizer mount that replaces the BMW badge in the middle of the headstock that  I bought from Nippy Normans and is extremely easy to fit

              Hi, I have to agree with temesvar..  the Migsel mount is great as the GPS is perfectly set in your field of vision without interference! Expensive bit of kit unless you can get to know someone who has upgraded their bike and have a spare Migsel mount  :)

                I agree that the Migsel mount is a work of art, but this Hornig one is also beautifully made and not so expensive.
