    I'm all for the camera mount. I am also in need of any other "convenience" upgrades for the bike.

    Cell phone/IPod holster, cup holder (to put a spray bottle of water in. got the idea from a really neat lady), etc etc.

    Let me know what we can get together and I'm in.

    I'm interested. Maybe not all the stuff these guys have posted, but electronics (the new Garmin coming out at the end of the year). Anything yellow and green. LOL I had to settle for yellow and black rain gear today... A cup holder would be groovy. I know! A CamelBack in a variety of colors.

    Okay, let me quickly jump in here, seriously , and differientiate a little.

    Remember, a group buy is all of us buy ONE specific item- so it has to be something we all want or is useful (like a Geza Cover).

    Attempting to buy several items under some sort of pashnit discount (10% off for example) is sort of the opposite- that would be approaching a supplier or manufacture and requesting a global discount if it's bought under the pashnit name- which we could very well do if a supplier/manufacture/moto-retailer would agree to that.

    I have participated in a bunch of group buys via forums over the years, but that's how they worked. I've also bought product where a moto-retailer offered a 'coupon code' where anyone at anytime could enter a 'coupon code' into an on-line site for example and get 10% off any product they offered.

    OK,OK ,if we can't do a zx14 buy then my second choice would be a throttlemeister.

    Personally I don't need one, I have a "Kaoko" throttle lock. But I'll throw my 2 cents in. These things are great esp. ever since I blew up my elbow. I found out after the elbow was healed and I started working with my right arm again that my wrist was bugging me. Well low and behold there are some bones in my wrist which have a crack or two in them.

    Back to the "throttlemiester" I use mine quite a bit now to give the arm a break, I can't recomend them enuf. If you don't buy the "Throttlemiester" or the "Kaoko" throttle lock be carefull there is/was another company out there selling a similar product that wasn't well thought out. The threads were cut the normal (right hand) way and the thing would get tighter as you turned the throttle off ...................RON
