When you are in the middle of a long ride on a motorcycle, you get thirsty. So you stop and refresh yourself. Then you have to throw away the rest of your iced coffee or energy drink. Take your drink on the road with you by installing a do-it-yourself motorcycle cup holder.

Considerations

Use a store-bought cup holder, a camera mount or GPS mount, and a bracket. Find a screw long enough to fit through the bracket. Bolt the camera mount to your gas cap; use a bracket that fits the curve of gas cap. Attach the cup holder to the bracket. For 150cc scooters, try mounting in the centre of the handlebars. Check that you will not screw into wires.

Benefits

A DIY motorcycle cup holder is convenient and, stocked with a water bottle, makes it easier to stay hydrated while riding in the hot sun.

Fun Fact

Two of the earliest motorcycle women riders in the United States were sisters Adeline and Augusta Van Buren. In 1916, they broke gender stereotypes by riding from New York to California. They were the first women to make an unaccompanied coast-to-coast journey on two bikes.
