Cup holder for 30oz Yeti type cup

Any suggestions for a handlebar mounted cup holder that will hold a 30 oz yeti type cup. I'm wanting to get everyone's opinion to see which would be the best purchase. Thanks in advance.

My only suggestion is make sure you also get the Pilot Relief Tube - 30 oz.... YIKES!

I would not make it out of the parking lot.

Lol. That thing holds ice all day. I can't drink it all at once or I would have the same problem.

its a fine balance on a road trip

Riders dont realize, that esp if you dont have a windshield, the air blast sucks the fluids out of your body and you will get dehydrated riding a MC in a few hours.

One indication of dehydration is strange, after riding all day your voice gets raspy and hoarse.

But yeah, between staying hydrated and having to stop every 40 miles to find a bathroom can spoil an otherwise beautiful day of riding.

as far as finding stuff, I usually look on amazon first, just to see whats out there and the price ranges. My normal site for MC stuff is BikeBandit.

The trunk I bought on Amazon and put on the back of my bike cost less than $45... so YES!

Picked up one of these bad boys at the rally today for $20 fits the rambler and also hold a regular 16 oz water bottle...the arms flex out to accommodate larger cups. Well worth the money...made by chubby cups

I have a Yeti 18oz. I found a chrome cup holder on Amazon that works. It has a 90 degree bend in it's attachment arm. So I zipped tied the passenger foot peg upright, and installed the cup holder on the foot peg. The Yeti is within reach, and not on the handlebar in my way. Being a diabetic, I drink a lot of fluid.

Cup holder

I use a chrome cup holder to hold my Yeti, and mounted it to the foot peg.

Bob, ps: sorry about upside down pic.
