Motorcycle Cupholder

This is just too awesome!

BTW, he specifically recommends not drinking from it while moving.

I like it but I quit riding. Always tempted but the fuel saved is offset by insurance, tags, maintenance and danger.

In my case, the Insight gets better mpg than any bike I've owned. (Well, except maybe the 305cc Honda that I had back in the '70s.) And nowadays the dogs want to go pretty much everywhere with me...

I found a certain sized cup would balance quite nicely between the gauges on the Gold Wing. With a straw it could be used with my full-faced helmet. But it's hardly worth it.

Google Images can't find the picture I was looking for—a Harley tank with a pocket for a beer can and another for a pack of cigarettes, but https://www.google.com/search?q=motorcycle+cup+holder doesn't lose focus all the way down the page and there are 8 sub-categories, so you know it's a popular thing to do.
