Hello everyone, this morning I added a 12v adapter on the bike it is a '80 cx500. used the side cover in front to mount the adapter, works awesome.

also I made a bracket to mount my GPS had to customize a bracket for it considering I do not have a fairing. Works great I can remove the unit when not in use for the vehicles. now where do i put my MP3 player? Guess that can go in pocket or clip it to my cell phone case. although winter will be here soon I will be ready to cruise for now I will enjoy riding till its way to cold to ride.

I used a bar mount GPS holder and installed my 12V adapter in the fairing pocket. Trust me, you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner

I wired mine into the previously hacked up radio harness, used it non-stop on my 1030 mile trip all week, not one issue.
