I really like the Butler. Yes, it's way too high $$ but it works great. Around $50-60. But it doesn't sweat and leak all over the bike/stereo.

I have the same folding type I think you are describing and use it for my ashtray. I had trouble getting used to the rattle and mounted a Coffee Butler on the throttle side.

I fixed the rattle and realized that the folding type is much more diverse and useful for holding other items than the Coffee Butler.

There is also the swinging cup holder. I think it is called aCup Buoy. I had one on my 1200 but didn't care for it much.

I have a fold up on my 96. I use a stainless cup that has a rubber no slip bottom. It workd great. The regular plastic cup did not work very well withmy holder either.

I bought one of the Butler holders for the pillion. It works well for my wife. One nice thing is that we can take the holder off the bracket when not using it and store it in the saddlebag.

I don't have anything on the front - I prefer to pull off and stop if I need to get a drink.

I looked at one for the rear armrest. 20 or 32 oz, but both cost $60. My wife liked the ease of the big straw. She said she couldn't enjoy it at that price....a $5. rig for $60.

Here is mine. also pricy. I like it fine but you have to reinforce the pop rivets if you ride with a heavy mug.
Takes any cup or mug.
