Cup holder

Looking for recommendations for a cup holder to mount somewhere on my 2016 RGS. I would like to be able to ride with an iced coffee.

You can find different sizes for what you need be they honestly work great and depending on the size you can put it in your jacket pocket.

I've been using the barefoot willies cupholder for years. not for iced coffee, but I use a double walled insulated cup and ice water. the ice lasts for a good long while, usually top it off at each gas stop when on the road. you do not want to get dehydrated, trust me on this.

never seen it as a distraction, easy enough to reach without having to take your eyes off the road. and if i'm in the middle of some white knuckle stuff, drinking water is not at the top of my priority list.

you can sorta see it here on my left side handlebar:

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

These guys have many great products and they have excellent customer service, run their stuff on several bikes.

Don't fail us now, oh blessed mother of acceleration...

Here is what I am using;

As also said insulated cup will do the best at keeping the drink cold.

I too have the Kruzer Kaddy. It is ok, but I find that most of my coffee travel mugs are either too fat or too tall. As WTFranz mentioned, they also tend to tip over quite a bit and you'll either make a mess all over your bike/hand/leg or just dump the entire mug onto the ground (has happened to me twice). Mostly I just use it for a water bottle holder or a place to put my sunglasses when getting on/off my gear.

I used to have quick drinks of beverages while at stop lights etc, but since I went from a modular to a full face helmet, that is not in the cards. I might try one of those leather saddlebag guard holders with an insulated straw bottle.

This one is more for a passenger, but thought I'd post anyway. Neat drink holder we found on our ride out west last summer. I posted it once here but made the mistake of posting w/ the name. Everyone got so distracted by the name the thread went kind of downhill . . ... : )

I went with the cheap version - "Snap & Go Drink Holder" from J&P Cycles; J&P Part: 502-029. Holds a quart water bottle or a tall cup of coffee in a koozie without tipping. After 50k miles, 3 years in the Arizona sun and 2 more over here a piece broke and I replaced it with the exact same thing. I highly recommend this holder.

I've used the HD cup holder that mounts off the crash bar since I got the bike. Works good. Iced coffee with one of those neoprene sleeves stays cold long enough to drink it. It's out of the way when I'm not using it. I don't like a lot of stuff mounted off the bars.
