GPS/Camera Mount - K1100LT or 94/95 K75RT

I originally built this mounting bracket for my Magellan Meridian Platinum GPS but when I got the TomTom Rider GPS it turned out to work perfectly for that as well. It mounts on and off the bike in a minute or two and is very stable. Here it is with the TomTom rider mounted. The angled part at the top slips in between the top of the fairing and it's inner panel. I installed some hardware for the lower attaching point so that it is held in place by a knob with a machine screw on the end. It is constructed out of aluminum bar stock.

I also installed a 1/8" jack to provide switched 12 volt power to the GPS. Here's an older picture of it with the Magellan GPS installed:

I originally had it painted in flat black but later had it powder coated in glossy black for a more durable finish.

As I was building my GPS mount, I had an inspiration and realized that by adding a tab to the top of the GPS mounting bracket and using the top of a small tripod I could make a camera mount for filming riding videos with my digital camera. Wind rushes over the microphone so I either have to eliminate the audio or dub some music in but it works quite well. Click this link to see some of my riding videos.

Here's a video of riding up to Beartooth Pass from Yellowstone.
