I've got one of the moto mounts that were sold for the SD2 but there was a couple things I didn't like about it.

1. It doesn't work well with a lanyard connected to the Beacon.
2. Cant get the Beacon out quickly.
3. There's not allot of real estate in my dual sport bike's handlebars so I needed to deal with that also.

I came up with 2 systems, both incorporate the easy release. The straight mount is for a dirtbike with room on the bars. The angle mount is for a crowded bar.

My setup requires the angle mount.

Here's a vid showing the quick release, the beacon's lanyard will have a clip to attach that end to something nearby so it never gets lost even if the mount breaks.

Here's the std version. If anyone wants the STL files send me a PM w/ you email.

This is in the quick release position, note the spread fingers at the lower end, a quick tug on the lanyard will extract the beacon out of the holder.
