I need a cup holder
« on: February 03, 2016, 12:27:31 am »
I have been looking for a cup holder that would fit the C-10. but because of the different style handle bars I haven't really found anything. Any ideas on a good cup holder or a way to make something work? I know this is not a fancy farkle, but it's essential to me.

Steveman,

Blonde, brunette, or redhead?   :)

Don't tell them details about the actual job position though!    :)) :)) :))

I've got one of the ram balls in each of the handlebar mirror mount holes, GPS goes on one side and the cup holder on the other.

Lots of good ideas here. Thanks guys. I really like the daisy duke model. I'm a big fan of the original model, but I have to say the newer version looks rather plush. Do you think I could get a different one for every day of the week?

I also went with the RAM ball in the mirror peg, pictured in 'motorcycle maintenance mode' 

One drawback is that I have often had condensation blow off the container and end up on my jacket / gloves etc...  not a deal breaker, but was unexpected, and the first time it happened I kept thinking it was raining.

If you are looking to just hold water bottles, then I ended up using a bottle holder that was originally designed to attach to the engine guard on an HD Bagger.  I zipped tied it to the sidestand assist handle in front of the panier, the concho also adds a bit of panache :great:

I like that^^^

I've been using a Velcro Schwinn bicycle cup holder from Wally World on my stalk (C14) but the Harley bag looks fine to me.

Seems that a bladder and long straw is the way to go. Surprised I haven't seen that suggested. Sailor Chic keeps hers in her tank bag and the straw(tube) is on a retractable lanyard. It's always right there... Roman had one tied to his jacket somehow - and I was jealous watching him drink and ride on long bouts with the slab heading to Cortez.

The cup holder is a great place for coffee or beer when doing maintenance in the garage so I'll still keep it:) But 'hydration bladders' seem to be the solution for drinking on the go.

Fais,
My Olympia Moto Quest jacket has a hydration pack that zips onto the back. I also use a Camelback in my tank bag more frequently since I don't really like the added weight hanging on my shoulders when I ride. Seems to bother me until it is almost 3/4 empty, at which time I am more than 3/4 full and have to stop for a drain and refill.

I've heard of some folks that glued a CB antenna magnet into the bottom of a koozie and stick it to the top of their fuel tank.

I have a bladder (kinda like a camelbak) in a bag that I wear around my waist with a tube on a retractor line. I can reach down with my left hand, get the mouthpiece, take a sip or 6, let it go. Works great, transfers from bike to bike, and doesn't interfere with ventilation in warmer weather.

No one is a TOTAL failure; they can always be used as a bad example.
