I happened to take this shot when I had the Etrex on there. I use it on the commute if I change routes and want the GPS logs for the route, for the few times I actually get to get out and ride during the weekend, and for a couple of the couple of "mini-tours" I did this year

Heres mine, and yes I use the GPS. When I'm not in a rush, I use to go geocaching on the way home.

Here is mine set up for winter night rides with Lumicycle 12w + 20w Nimh battery and 2 x Fenix P1D LED torches. This is a very bright set up.

Coffee cup holder is great! I've been tempted by those, thinking about getting one for my new city bike. Now that I've seen it in action, I NEED it.

^^ I love the flowers! I need some of those, too...

Hawaiian lei. The elastic is durable and easily removed, as opposed to garlands secured with zip ties.
