This mount system provides a secure, central-mounting location on motorcycles with non-standard or cast aluminum handlebars. These types of handlebars are most commonly found on touring and sport-touring models such as BMW RTs, BMW GTs and Kawasaki Concourse 14s. These Center Mounts were designed especially for them. Most common uses are Audio/Video units, MP3 players, cell phones, PDAs, iPhones and GPS equipment.
