Default Cup holder?

Has anyone attempted to install any sort of cup holder? I don't see much way to do it that it won't interfere with the handlebars. It'd be nice to grab a quick sip of water without having to stop and retrieve a water bottle from the saddle bag.

There was a recent post that showed one.
Use a hydration backpack.
Or, install a CD drive. Just push a button and a cup holder appears.

Those on the computer aren't very substantial. Every time I set a cup of coffee or a glass of bourbon on one it always falls in the floor. You'd think they'd make those things stronger.

I have been using a RAM cup holder for years. Works well as long as the cup or bottle does not bounce out. LOL

A squeeze water bottle fits in the left fairing pocket and sometimes I take a thermos coffee mug along in place of the water bottle.

Where did you get it? Where is it mounted? I briefly shopped around a bit before my trip a couple of weeks ago but gave up because everything I found seemed to be handlebar mounted. I've got spare ram mount on my dash shelf right between my GPS and phone that would be ideal for a cup holder if it had a long enough arm.

That's my question, where to mount it. I can't come up with a place to mount a cup holder that its not in the way of something. Since I always wear a jacket, I'm going to try drilling a hole in the cap of a water bottle, inserting a tube into the bottle, clipping the tube onto my jacket for access, and placing the bottle into my jacket pocket. It may be a colossal failure but I won't know until I try. And it's cheap!! An occasional rinse with a mild bleach solution should keep things from getting too grungy.
