Very Happy

Hey all.....
First: has anyone heard from or seen Shoganai our erstwhile fem motorcyclist and award winning biscuit maker???? I know she went away from BMW and over to the Indian brand, but that's no reason to."drop off the Earth"... Hoping she's OK and escaping this damned Corona plague.!

Second: Does anyone know of a really good quality iPhone mount for the K1100 series bike, where to mount it, and from where to bring in power??

Thanks and Ride Safe everyone...../. Ernie in NH

Last contact I had with Shogs was in 2014. On the Indian forum I found this:

I just texted her to say hi. Hopefully she still has the same mobile number.

I heard she's all over facebook... but I don't go there.

Think she used to post a lot on ADV, too.

I did hear from her earlier in the year - but we didn't talk very long - I was at a conference.

Wouldn't work very well with a tank bag - and I don't see how you'd connect an iPhone to that. Matter of fact, I'm not even sure that would work with a BMW gas tank.

Ernie - everyone I've ridden with lately uses a Ram mount. They've been popular for many years, and seem to have some of the best mounts out there.

I started using Ram mounts in 2006 when I got the StreetPilot III.

You can get power from any of the power ports - or add power ports if you need to.

This is the one I installed on my K11. I mounted it with one of the bolts under the center handlebar and I connect to the accessory power just above it.

Good news. Shogs is alive and well. She responded to my text and next week when she has some free time to waste she's going to give me a call.
