I think the cockpit is ready now.

It took a little riding and getting used to the new bike before I wanted to make decisions about my dash setup for the new wing. I think I got it pretty much how it will remain for the next riding season. Added my GPS, a set of baker wings, and the Kury storage bin for chapstick, the garage door fob, and a water bottle holder. I may be a bit of a minimalist, but at least it isn't too cluttered. I think I am ready for the spring to get here now.

Any good reason to stay out of someone else’s mess is a gift to both parties.

That is a Beadrider seat cover. It is actually the model I bought for my ST1300. It fits well enough for my wing. Really helps in the summer time. I have not owned the new Wing through a summer heat yet, but I am hopeful the Wing is not as hot as my ST1300. All of my ST1300 bikes were almost unbearably hot on the crotch when riding above 85 DegF outside.

Nice setup! What model GPS and holder are you using? Thanks!

Pearl Hot Rod Yeller is the fastest, gets better mileage, attracts fewer bugs, better looking owners, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. Must be true; you read it here!!

Nice set up, just FYI I had my GPS in the same spot on all of bikes with a taller ram mount to get it to more of a eye level. I decided to try the EZ mount windshield vent GPS set up and now I a big fan of the EZ mount location.
I don't have to glance down at GPS and with the new set up the screen is right under my eye level with no obstructions to the road.

I like the beadrider, now you should think about a little volt meter on the lower right side.

The Garmin is a Nuvi52LM (nothing special). The mount is from Ram with a ball bracket.

My GPS mount came from my previous bike (ST1300). Would you please share a picture from the same point of view as mine with your EZ mount shown? I really don't want to block my road view or cover up the view of my dash instrumentation. I do get what you are saying about having to look away from the road. I have noticed that before on my other bike. Everything seems like a compromise

I sent an email to the address on theEZ mount website. It came back as undeliverable.
