Put A Cup Holder On Your Motorcycle... You'll thank me later!
Having a cold coke or water while you are motoring along is a good idea. Or a hot coffee for those days you need it. The last I checked, most motorcycles do not come equipped with a cup holder from the factory. But, getting an aftermarket motorcycle cup holder doesn’t have to worry about that anymore. Plus, you don't need to look for a store to buy one! There is nothing like having what you need on the bike so you don't need to stop unnecessarily, especially when you are going on a long ride through the backwoods on your favorite twisty road or wide open space. Besides who wants to have a water bottle stuffed inside your concealed-carry jacket or motorcycle leather vest?
Mounting Your Cup Holder Right!
Not if you do it right! Properly installing a cup holder is not difficult. But, if you are wondering how, ask a friend that has one already, or you can read the instructions... ha!
Another good thing to keep in mind is that bolting the holder to your handlebar will not help you with resale value. So thinking about getting a clamp with a quick-release lever is the way to go, giving you all the flexibility you could need.
What Size Motorcycle Cup Holder Do you Need?
There are a wide variety of drink holders for a reason. We all have different tastes. One consideration is the size drink you want to have with you. Logic dictates that you wouldn't want a huge coffee mug with you. However, if you like to travel with a large coffee mug. If you do, then a handlebar holder might not work for you. But, if you would like to carry a typical-size bottle, then you have plenty of options to pick from! The last thing you want is your drink to be rattling or falling while you are driving down the road.
So, what is a good alternative? An adjustable cup holder, especially if you are not too sure what size beverage you carry. Or if you like to change it up a bit you would want to get an adjustable one.
