Bike almost at 100,000

Bike will probably be at 100k today, I also have a question as to what these little posts are for. The 1200 I had them on other side of handlebars.

They are supplied with RAM Mounts to attach their different brackets and adjustable swing arms.

Mine are in the same place, first mount is 360* adjustable, 2nd mount is a 6 inch arm that will swivel in the middle and 360* at the opposite end. It holds my Garmin 2797 dead center between the hand grips inline with the grips. Keeps the GPS out of view of the windscreen.

For the ram base should I try to get 1 with 2 balls or 1? Keep the mind out of the gutter guys and gals, I am keeping mine as clean as I can.
Those screws have to be taken out to put mount on or does it slip over and lock on them somehow?

I would get the single ball. I have one on each side. For a cup holder get Barefoot Willy's, cheapest and best one made.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

My wife doesn't want me to add anything that will make bike look cheap and my handlebars have foam or something on them, how would I attach Barefoot willies?

It looks like I takes part of the bike clamp off and use the ram mount as half the clamp?

It attaches with longer bolts and spacers just like the ones in your picture. http://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-Barefo...72.m2749.l2649
