cup holder options/opinions help..

Hi all,

I'm looking for a good cup holder for my bike. I will only be placing water or gatorade bottles in the cup holder (don't drink coffee).

I read a past post here about a magnetic one for the tank, but apparently that guy went out of business.

I have seen some of the different options and I DO NOT want the side cup holder where it attaches to the motor. I do not want a rear saddlebag cup holder either.

I'm open to all other options and any help would be great.

Thank you ladies and gentlemen....

Try this one. I sue it and love it. Can be taken off easily when not in use.

I use the Kuryakyn cup holder that mounts to the left hand side of the handlebar. One thumb screw and its off when you are not using it.
It looks a little large when mounted but on long trips, I don't care. Every time I gas up on long trips, I get a new bottled water (sport top works best) and throw it in there. I end up using it 90% of the time I ride. You can see it mounted in the picture. (with water bottle)

Thanks for the options!!! Keep them coming please.

Does anyone know what happened to the forum member that was selling the magnetic ones on here a little while back?

I just ordered this. Saw some others that were similar and worked extremely well. I figured for 8 bucks I would try it. The one that mounts to the engine is a waste of 50.00 dollars. Guess how I know

Cup holder

I have the one that Screaminz posted the pic of. My version is called "chubby Cup". It works very well, however, you have to have the correct sized bottles or they jiggle out. The small gatorade bottles work great, as does a standard mountain bike water bottle.

I have a $2 bicycle water bottle that I carry and pour the drink of choice into for the ride. It can easily be removed or relocated, and isn't an eyesore on the bars.

2013 FLTRX B B P, 11 in Paughco RG Apes, V & H Monster Round, American custom dual header, SE high flow air intake, 8.5 in Klock Werks shield, Monotubes up front, lots of blacked out chrome parts, and the list goes on.......

I love my rammount for the front and the wife loves her hogtrough for the passenger. Both worth every penny.
