    Tom Tom rider mounting advice

    Hi All,

    I am looking for the best way to mount my Tom Tom Rider to my bike.  I have been trying to use Ram mounts but have not found a way to position it centrally while clearing the tank bag and still giving me a clear view of the instrument cluster.  It seems the only option might be to go for a migsel bracket, but it's v.expensive. 

    Cheers

    I'm going for the migsel bracket, I want the sat nav as high as possible. I've got the TomTom and I'm collecting my new (s.hand) 1200x dct tomorrow. Happy days.

    I’ve had one of these for about 5 years. No problems.

    That looks like a good option.  Can you post pics to show how it looks on the bac please?  Thanks
