or you can go with a Maple Farkle Shelf if you want to use RAM Mounts.
  Thanks for the lead on that seller of accessories.  I decided to go with his ram ball mount at the base of the handlebars along with a separate ram ball for one of the holes on the handlebars.

Accessories and Products / Any Bike Cover suggestions??
« on: October 16, 2017, 08:24:56 pm »
I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for a decent (read that as not too expensive but may last a few years) bike cover for the 2015 TTSE??  I do not have a top box so that may impact on size.  I see many after market bike covers listed in sizes like Large or similar or they list certain popular bike models but so far not showing our bikes.  SO any suggestions of a proper fitting cover??  Don't want to force it to cover yet don't want to up-size and have it fit like a parachute.

Thanks n advance,

Also due to a lack of imagination, mine originated with my first name and telephone area code.  The numbers just came about when I attempted to create an account someplace and it kept telling me the account already existed......for about any name I tried to use.  It finally started suggesting name with random numbers so that gave me the idea of the Area Code.  Actually I've now seen the exact name on other sites I've never frequented so I may need to start something else for new sites.

This Ram part screws into the hole on the handle bars. RAM-B-349U  You use the same item on both sides. I use one on each side to hold a variety of items, phone, additional GPS, camera, etc.

I'm embarrassed....I rode behind those handle bars for something like 1600 miles for 4 1/2 days and only after you mentioned them did I actually see the spot.  Part ordered, should have grabbed 2, thanks again.

When I buy a new vehicle, I wash it and apply three coats of Zaino to it, and then just wash it normally when it gets dirty. All of my vehicles look new when I sell them, usually after 7-10 years or so.
  I've never head of this product but in checking they produce a multitude of items.  Do you recall exactly which product (Z2-Z3) you apply?



First I hope this is the right forum for this general question.  Abbreviated question is anyone aware of a more generic Garmin GPS mount over the factory accessory?

More detailed question is I have a Garmin Nuvi 2555 GPS unit.  When I did a fly/ride from the dealer a few States away I desperately wanted to use my existing GPS but had no mount.  I kept in my pocket but afraid of dropping it I would pull off the highway/street/road, pull it out to check my progress, at times turning around to find my way, and continue. 

I admit I'm a fan of the RAM ball mounts for items and have used them in multiple vehicles   I've used their handlebar "U-Bolt" bases before but since the 2015 Trophy doesn't really have a conventional 3/4" bar I don;t see it working.  Does anyone know if the  Brake/Clutch Reservoir Base, Part# RAM-B-309-1U, the Reservoir Cover Base or perhaps the Gas Tank Base might fit.  I suspect not since those with a model fitment list do not show the Trophy (or Triumph for that matter).

Thanks in advance folks,

Albuquerque, NM
