    GPS and camera mount.

    If you have aftermarket handlebars (with no OEM cover pad) the best GPS mount is a RAM mount: http://65.102.174.119/rammount/produ...49z-GA5&item=1

    It also can double as video cam mount..it is what I used to video my speeds last summer. It bends and flexes nicely to get whatever angle I need and does'nt get wet on short runs and jumping around.

    This is how it works:http://www.hydrotoys.com/gpr/tuners/...wash/83mph.WMV

    You can use a RAM mount with stock bars. Just remove the spacer on the left side.

    I had a ram mount back in 2002 and they are dangerous, I ended up crushing it with my chest one time that the ski bogged out of the hole while holeshooting and almost hurst myself. Not a good idea to have an aparatus that you can tangled on right infront of you.

    I DITCHED IT QUICK

    I've never had a problem with it, even jumping waves. I really only need it when testing and it it works great for video work. I will probably get the Foretrex handlebar mount one, but those little numbers are hard to see going fast...my eyes ain't what they used to be.

    IMHO,
    I've never cared for gps systems mounted on the bars. Water pressure in rough seas can push past the seals or rip it right off the bars.

    My GPS is tethered to the bar with a strap, just in case. I've plowed through waves before and gotten a good sinus flush, but never lost a GPS. This model, the Garmin 76, also floats!

    I have the 76 also and use a combination Touratech/RAM mount, I dare anyone to knock it off no matter how hard or big the water comes, it'll never knock the unit off the mount. However I also use a tether just in case and IF I go wave jumping I remove the unit an put it in a pelican case that goes in my storage bin. But I HAVE been wave jumping with it and never had a problem even submarining
