Today's Friday Feature is about Shaun and his Honda Transalp. Shaun posted his story and pictures in our GPS City Gallery last week:
One of Shaun's favorite activities is to ride his 1987 Honda Transalp motorcycle near his Toronto home. He enjoyed the "back roads and rougher gravel roads in eastern Ontario" on his Paris-Davar replica. Since he would explore these roads alone, he received the GPSMAP 62 as a recent birthday present. The Garmin GPSMAP 62 is a rugged and waterproof handheld navigator. This GPS also has a quad helix antenna for high-sensitivity reception. The GPSMAP 62 also supports various mapping systems with the ability to store up to 1.7G onboard memory.
Once Shaun had his GPSMAP 62 loaded with maps and ready to take his motorcycle on the road, he realized he would need a mount to keep the GPS in place. He chose the RAM Mount Stainless Steel U-Bolt Motorcycle Mount. This particular mount, which is compatible with the GSMAP 62, 62s and 62st, is designed so the user can adjust the GPS to his or her ideal viewing position. Additionally, Shaun purchased a Stainless Steel 1.25 U-Bolt for the large diameter bars on his motorcycle. Once everything was installed, Shaun was satisfied with the overall look of his GPS and mount on his beloved motorcycle. He explained, "It's a very clean arrangement and I found that with the rubber mounting, the 1.25 in u-bolts were perfect for the job."
