Antenna Relo

what do you guys think of this?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ks7No...layer_embedded

seems to me that the antenna needs to be secured in that area, as it could bob over into the tire, no?

Free is always good, and I hate where the antenna is currently (stock)

just did it and its no where near the wheel! theres 2 torx screws holding the antena mount bracket i took them out rotated the bracket foreward and put one screw back in along with a zip tie.theres no way its getting into the wheel.i had to do something as im putting stretched bags and a fender on this winter anyway.so it beats buying a hidden antena wich i havent read anything good about. they get the same reception as stock so i see it as a win win 10 min job.

decent cheap way to hide the antenna. have to see if it will be rubbing against anything when placed there.
