I Ride: 2013 Hyperstrada
Crossbar Mounted Radar, GPS and Music

The Hyperstrada works best if you can move around on the seat, back and forward, like on a dirt bike. I replaced the OE seat with the racing seat to make such movement easier. Next was to make all my electronic stuff available but out of the way.

I purchased a small cross bar Moto Pocket. A small bag that is really designed to hold a handgun, but works well for all sorts of stuff.

The motoPOCKET - adventurePOCKETS



Next I made a crossbar from a piece of aluminum angle stock from Home Depot, mounting it between the rear view mirror mounts.

Now I had the platform to mount all my ride necessities. B2B radio, radar detector, iPhone music, GPS and even a waterproof ride camera.

I used RAM 1" Ball Mounts on the handlebars to support the GPS and radar detector. Everything audio related is amplified and balanced by a Motochello 200 system.

Once everything was set, the handlebar mounted controller can be unplugged and removed. (Since I don't talk on the phone while riding.)

Now, I have a everything I want for solo and group rides.



You can see the ear monitor jack next to the GPS.


Above is the perspective from my eyes, showing that the entire dash remains visible.



Tidy and out of the way.



For group rides I add my Kenwood GMRS B2B radio and a waterproof ride camera, which is tied to the bike with a lanyard, and modified to easily work with motorcycle gloves.

Since the motopocket came with "adhesive pad", how did you mounted it to the handbar??

Angle iron aluminum crossbar mounted to the rear view mirror mounts. I have the R&G extenders too.



Conduit mounts used to tie the Moto Pocket to the crossbar and handlebar clamp.



Small holes cut in the bottom of the Moto Pocket to pass cables through.

The Moto Pocket I purchased had Velcro tabs to secure it. I cut those tabs off because I prefer the security of the mounts I now have.

Inside the MotoPOCKET is the easy Motochello system for incorporating whatever you want.



The headset installation into my helmet was a snap too. I used hot glue to attach components.



The microphone has an adhesive backing.
