Installed a new GPS mount.

A few years ago I installed a RAM mount on the triple tree, but still didn't like that I had to look down to see the GPS.
I decided to mount it higher, and bolted the mount ball to the fairing frame.

It's the Triumph Flip-Up Aero screen. I love it! No buffeting, even at highway speeds.

I think it is made of Lexan. Not sure on it's bullet shielding properties, nor do I want to test it!
