Zumo 660 Mounted

I mounted my Zumo today using a combination of Speedy's GPS mount and a Touratech locking mount. I hard wired it into my Fuzeblock in a switched circuit. I like the fact that the Zumo has an internal battery thus when you turn off the key the GPS will continue to run. I really like the GPS mounted just above the gauges like this, your eyes don't have to stray far from the road to glance at the GPS.







And a pic from the ride today.

As stated above, nice work James. I'm "old school" too, Zumo 450.

Let's get together and ride sometime, you're close!

We should do that. Check out the rideohio.org board. There's a bunch of good people, all makes of bikes, probably a half dozen Versys riders. We do a monthly RTE.

Nice installation I've got a Zumo 660 too and it's a nice bit of kit. I mounted mine on the handlebars though (with the standard mount), as I find it easier to use while riding. Heh, I probably shouldn't be using it while riding...
