ANybody know where I could find a great holder that will fit over the square tube handlebars on a 2007 GL 1800?

This is what I use on my GL1500 and GL1800.

http://m-j-enterprises.com/beverage_holders.htm

With a little change. The plate they now furnish to attach to the brake master cylinder clamp bolts is made of aluminum. They had used Lexan in the past but changed to aluminum for some reason. The aluminum does not flex enough and the cup kind of bounces around in the holder on the handlebars. I changed the aluminum plate back to a 3mm or 1/8" Lexan polycarbonate plastic plate. The passenger hold is fine as aluminum.

Or, you can buy the cup holder at just about any RV supply for about $5. Then you can and make your own plate of any material you wish.

Thanks Mike but I was looking for something that just might clamp to the handlebar...the bottom plate on this one might cause the movement of the cup.???

The cup holder itself is fine. It is the aluminum plate that it is attached to that attaches to the handlebar that is not flexible enough in my opinion and the cup bounces a bit on bumps and rough roads.
As to clamping something to the handlebar, I don't know that you will find something that will not interfere with full rotation of the handlebars.

RAM product below works nice for shorter stout containers, top heavy travel mugs that are too tall lean a bit when empty but this works well for me.

I had a barefootwillies drink holder on the Shadow that I just sold. It was perfect for the application. Handlebar mounted.

Today I received my order of two Chubby Cups quick release drink holders. Got them installed quite easily and will be testing them this weekend. They are actually mounted on the passenger handles and I can always release them if we are going to be away from the bike for any length of time. Made of nylon they appear to be quite sturdy and will hold the drinks of various sizes. Not to likely that I will do any long distance rides without the Mrs so these will work perfectly. And they don't appear that they will be in her way while riding.
Jury is still out but so far they are getting two thumbs up.

BTW, I ordered them through Cyclemax and they came in a couple of days. Nice! Also ordered the IMC motorcom headset for short helmets. Looking forward to trying this out as well.

Hello,

I think this is the same, but lower price.

I have the first purchased.

Greetings Wiebe.

We'll, if it's not the same then one of them is a good imposter. The Mrs is pleased to have the drinks available. I put a holder on each side of the passenger seat. How long have you had yours? Happy so far with it? Did you put it on the wing?

BTW, what does that equal in USD?

OK. I'm biased. After using the Butler (the big one) on a trip to Texas a couple of weeks ago, I'm convinced it's the only drink holder worthy of my Wing and I.

My wife (co-rider) has a Kury holder for her drinks... and the liquid is warm in less than 10 minutes.

The Butler kept my drink cold for the whole day while we were riding... and that's no exaggeration. And we were riding through a couple of 100°F days too. When I reached the bottom of the cup, there was still ice down there!
On the way back home, my wife pretended her holder didn't exist, and I had to share mine. :lol:

So I ordered the small one the other day for her, from The Engraver. They have them on sale. It will mount to her armrest...and I'll have mine to myself again.

I have one of these and like it. http://kruzerkaddy.net/ I am fussy about how things look and work and you do not really notice this one.

The first time you (or you wife) bashes your teeth because you were getting a drink and hit a bump at the same time you'll wish you had a straw to drink through... This is the reason I use Butler cups for both rider and passenger... They keep the water cool well and are nearly indestructible... If you should ever lose a cup, they are obtainable separately as well...
