I bought the four pack of them. I didn't screw it into anything though. I lifted up the button snaps on the left fairing pocket, stuck the elbow down into it and snapped the buttons closed. It rides where the auto-volume control knobs are but I rarely use them.

Easy alternative to the $50 cup holders vendors want. Wallyworld $1.99. Connected to my windwing brackets. I am sure if you wanted to, you could find nicer looking holders also. Just wanted to try this and see if it worked.....it does just fine.

Thanks for the idea Digger.

I put that same one on my lawn tractor. Be careful, it's brittle - I have bumped it with my knee, and it cracked. You get what you pay for, I guess.

Hello all, I have to comment. the PO had put one on my bike, however I wear a full face helmet, and so found no value in it, so I ripped it off. but i also wonder who drinks from a can while riding? i do 125 miles a day, and look forward to quick stop breaks for water... just my .02

Exactly what you said. I wear a full-face as well, and carry along drinks in the little rear trunk map bags. When I get thirsty, I pull over, get off for a rest, take my helmet off and have a drink.

I quit using cup holders, 'cause my beer kept losing it's head or foaming up. Plus to easy for a passing cop to see.



I got a 2-liter camel back now, which I can use with my full face helmet (safety first!) and it easily holds enough beer for a 200 mile trip.

Yep, but does your bladder hold enough for the same distance? :cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

Mine will hold one of those tall drink containers that has the long straw in it when I am wearing the full face helmet. These things are disposable, I got 4 for like $2.99

So.....at the Baja 500 a few years ago we were pitting near a bunch of other teams. XR650 comes rolling into the pit next to ours........rider kills bike but stays on it, pit crew is swapping filter and topping off the oil......when all the sudden there's a big leak coming from near the left foot peg. One of the pit guys dips his finger into it, sniffs it, then tastes it. He starts gagging........and the rider starts laughing.......he says, "sorry man......my catheter was kinked and I just straightened it out". He had the catheter run out his left pants leg and taped to the side of his left boot facing the bike.



I laughed.

Digger's wife, Da Boss, has a camel back also, she was using it when we where in Ar.

But I didn't see her use it for beer, she had gateraid in it.

If you drink to much and don't want to get off the bike and stop, I say "DEPENDS" (brand name of adult diapers in the U.S.) :dude::dude::dude:
