2011 MotoGP at Laguna Seca and BMW R1200GS Install

Last weekend I was up at Monterey for my favorite event of the year, MotoGP.  We had a fantastic crowd, great weather, and most importantly, awesome racing.

We had plenty of old customers dropping by to say hi (and we thank each and one of you that came by) and plenty of new customers taking advantage of great deals that we had for the TPX Radar Detector and AdaptivMounts.

One of our old customers and a friend of mine, Ken, wanted to get his GS outfitted for the TPX Radar Detector, so on Saturday morning before the gates opened, I installed the TPX Radar Detector on his GS and thought I'd share the install with you here.

The first thing was to install the mount.  The GS uses the AdaptivMount Handlebar Mount.  I installed the base:

Then the links and the top platform:

Next was to install the Wiring Harness for the TPX Radar Detector.  I removed the seat and attached the red positive cable to the positive terminal on the battery:

And the black negative cable to the negative terminal on the battery:

Then attached the Visual Alert to the top of the gauges:

And then connected it to the Wiring Harness:

Run the wires under a couple of side panels, tidy up the wires, and put the seat back on, and we are done:

The whole process took less than half an hour.

All and all it was a great weekend.  Can't wait for next year's event!
