I've attached pics of what I've done. It's worked out well for me. I bought the Versys about a month ago, put almost a thousand miles on it, and the "mount" hasn't budged. As you can see, if you can afford 2 zip ties, you can mount your GPS.
To explain, the handlebar mount offers a surprisingly flat, central location for the GPS. Just hold it in place, criss-cross two zip ties around, tighten, trim, and you're done. I think it actually looks pretty cool. Go on eBay, buy an extra suction mount and cord for your car for maybe $20 and you can use the GPS in your car as well.
Unrelated, but in case you're wondering, it is attached to trimmed/mounted charging cord which is, of course, plugged into the aftermarket 12V outlet. The outlet is in a sheet metal "dash" I constructed. I saw the area between the OEM dash and windshield as wasted space. You can go down to the hardware store, get some sheet metal, bend, shape, drill, and paint it and do the same thing. The nice thing is that it offers an area to put the 12V without drilling into your bike's dash, and offers space for something else like a thermometer. I want to ride in the winter, but not below freezing when ice is on the roads.
