..... Zumo 396 LM with Zumolock holder on RAM-B-349U fixed to screen frame
.......

That Zumolock thingie is a good idea (if a bit pricey) - I've been looking for something like that.  :028:

My Zumo came with a home-made lock that works well but adds to unit height, cannot fit it under my screen.

Yer joking. 18k they are. One of my chums has had one on order for 3 months, s'posed to be getting it at Crimbo, big waiting list for them. He's very bad with COPD now and struggling to manouvre his bikes out of the garage, he has a Speedmaster 1200 & an RE Himmy, 3 years ago he rode an Explorer. The Ural has a reverse gear, he saw somebody reversing one at a rally, went home & ordered same.

Blimey just had a look didn't realize they still sold them new

41hp = 439 per horse, does that make it the most expensive bike on the market in those terms???
