here's one way to do it:

another way would be to put a ram mount ball on the bike...there are tons of ways to mount ram balls---brake master cylinder, handbar mount for the control cluster...ram part number 219016 or 219094 would be a good base to start with, then attach a movable arm and buy a plate for the zumo mount cradle to bolt to, and you're in business!

After much trial and error I did it this way: I used a Ram mount on the clutch bracket with the 3 inch arm. Used the hard wired cradle that came with the Zumo but I cut off the Mic wire and the Traffic Antenna wire. (didn't like doing this, hate altering factory stuff but these wires were unneeded and totally in the way). I then ran the wire down the left handlebar and used two Velcro zip ties and 1 conventional zip tie to secure it. I zip tied this into a big loop attached to the headset cable then into the LH pocket. I then hooked up the Aux outpur of the Zumo into the Aux plug in the pocket. For power I got a 12 Volt cigarette light adapter from the parts store, stripped and connected the two wires from this to the power wires from the Zumo. Excess wire was coiled out of the way in the pocket. Power to the Zumo is only there when the key is in the on or Acc poisitons. GPS directions are heard either through the bike's speakers or the headset. Bike is a 2013 GL1800 trike. Short test ride shows all is well, will report back after trip to Americade.

Of course, this is fine as long as you don't ever want to listen to the radio (or CD player, etc). If you want to be able to listen to the radio AND hear GPS instructions, you need a GPS Input Device.
