I've a Garmin 276C fitted to the bike with the "ram-mount" system.

Absolutely perfect for me.

HI I use a ram mount system connected to a Otterbox to hold my HP 4705. I use bluetooth to connect to the gps receiver and to a gps headset (plugged into my sound system). I can easily transfer it from bike to bike. I wish I could make it connect automatically to the bluetooth headset as when it goes out of range it logs off the call and I have to reconnect when I get back. I got the ram mounts from Tourtech from here in the UK (I think some of the bits came directly from Gemany)

I also have the 376c, and have it in a Touratech mount. I fabricated a mount for the XM antenna. I wonder where on a Brutale would be suitable for mounting the XM antenna?

i think that the only place where you could mount the XM antenna (without making some ugly second handlebar mount....
would be on the TAIL.... a temporary mount of sorts

You'r right, it would be somewhat difficult to integrate the XM antenna.

I've been bouncing back and forth between getting a Brutale or a K1200R. Right now I'm leaning towards the K1200R. The available sport panniers are rather nice, for me anyway. It would add the ability to travel a bit further, throw in rain gear, etc, and occasional two up would be better. There isn't a motorcycle made that is as beautiful as the Brutale though.
