Gerbing controller mount

I'm looking for ideas for mounting my Gerbing controller permanently on the bike. I've been carrying it in a small bag located on the gas filler lid but thats proving impractical as far as one--hand operation goes. Don't want to clip it to my clothing but would rather mount it on the bike somewhere. Any and all ideas, recommendations or suggestions appreciated. Thanks and a very merry Christmas to all.

I was thinking mounting inside battery cover and have the knob stick out to control heat then put a outlet next to it to plug into. but havent done it yet

OK, here is what I have done. I bought two 12" extensions, plugged them into my jacket liner. I then had room to velcro my duel controller on the left front pocket door. I installed a female coax cable in the left front fairing just below the headlite up- down knob. The power cable (red) from the controller plugs into this & during the winter months I leave this plugged in & the controller on the door. Now when I go for a ride I get on the bike, plug in the two cables from my liner & I'm good to go.

I am not trying to steal the thread, but maybe I am. I looked at lots of jackets and gloves and decided on the Tourmaster Synergy brand because you did not need a separate controller. I have the power cord attached to the bikes battery and it plugs into the cord on the jacket.

Sorry for taking the thread away, but for those considering heated clothing this may assist them.

The Jacket lists for 199.95 and paid $179.95. I recently won one of these which I am raffling off in the general section.

All proceeds from the sale of the jacket go to my riding club.

Gerbing sells a controller specially made for permanent mounting on the bike. Mounts like a switch wherever you chose. Just FYI in case you didn't already know. Never tried mounting the portable controller permantly.
Merry Christmas to you as well.

A friend showed me his arrangement and I liked it so we did the same to mine. We velcroed and ty wraped the portable dual controller to the right handle bar just below the brake res. and routed the (self made extention) wires around the triple tree and down to the left side air vent and power lead to battery. We removed the about useless vent and installed an ABS plate to fit and mounted a couple of female Coaxial plugs there. I ordered two coiled cables (which I coiled together) from Gerbing to run from these plugs to the jacket liner. Works great and doesn't rub tank plus can dismount bike before unplugging. All parts available at radio shack and or Lowes. We also bought extra male coaxial connectors to plug the females in vent when not in use. If I didn't already have the portable controller i would have considered using Gerbing's perm. mount controller instead.

I currently use a portable dual temperature controller, but I'm considering purchasing Gerbing's Dual Permanent Temperature Controller. The only decision to make is where to mount it. The installation instructions suggest that mounting the Gerbing controller wouldn't be too hard.

I just got my permanent controller today and wondering where to mount it...I had heard on the right pocket, but not really sure.....I am going to mount the cigarette adapter in the left pocket and thought it may be nice to mount the controller also on the left pocket....what does everyone think???

I have a single controler that I attached (double sided tape) to the frame just above the chrome alternator cover. When not in use I tuck the cord behind the side panel. Easy to reach down and adjust when traveling.
