Why do you need a gps on a motorcycle you just go where the road takes you,if you get lost that is great now we see some new landscapes.

I wouldn't mind being able to use my Gamrmin Nuvy between my pickup and my bike. I plan on using it for work, and I travel across the country for work. and sometimes getting lost ain't a good thing. (due to time constraints and customers need for emergency service) whats a good way to mount one so it don't fall off?

Ram Mounts is another good choice. They are what I use.

JDMAG,
Also tie a piece of fishing line into the GPS, with the other end secured to the frame, in case it does fall from the mount. If you want to move it between f=vehicles, you will have to get a cat collar or similar, with a clip that comes apart, so that you can easily remove it from the GW.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

This is the unit I use on my GW and Virago. It has a safety strap and mounts at different angles.

I use my Garmin on the bike and in the cars as well - a Ram mount on the bike works like a champ; rock solid and secure.
