Easy on/easy off clamp. Decided on mounting it on the crash bars as on the handlebar it hits the tank on full lock:



Also not a mod but some new gloves. Hardened knuckles and genuine leather, by Gear X at £14. Very comfortable, perfect for summer and they're short which i wanted.

Yea thats it. I just ran a search for 'bicycle drink holder' as motorcycle ones tend to be much more expensive.
Didnt link it in my OP because theres thousands of designs on Ebay. The wire ones are good too but i wanted something more robust.
Ideal for long trips and the easy on easy off thing is cool.

Thanks Jeff.

No probs, i enjoy sharing my cheap mods with the forum. 
Really love the gloves though, give a much, much nicer feel on the controls.

I know in the US they sell a 'Cruzer Caddy' i think its called, which is a chromed cup holder which pivots based on lean so you dont spill the drink. Probably more popular among tubby Americans with their XXL milkshakes from McDonalds though

Got my drinks holder through today, as recommended by Eazy. Have just mounted it on my ape hangers, great quality at an incredibly good price.

I love ordering cheap stuff fro ebay China, by the time it arrives I have forgotten it is coming. Plus the amount of stuff I order and forget about that costs pennies, it always seems like Xmas. Things come every week.

I usually ride with an open face helmet, so drinking tea as I am going along is not a problem. I have already thought about a cold drink. I have a bottle with an integrated straw, I can just lean forward and suck. Happy days, love it.
