I need some ideas. I split my coffee this morning on my way to work. I need a spot to hold my coffee while I head to work. I was keeping it in the hard saddlebag inside another bag that I keep stuff for work. When I got to work, it was spilt everywhere. I was think about a cup holder on the handlebars, something that can hold my insulated cup. Or maybe is there some type of adapter cup holder that I can put into my saddlebag.

There's an old school way of transporting coffee that we used way way back in the day - it's called a thermos.

I’ve seen handle bar holders and leather holders that strap onto the rear brash guards if you have them. Try a search on Google for “ motorcycle cup holder / thermos holder” see what comes up bud.

I'll do some more googling.

I've got an 8 oz Rubbermaid steel thermos for my coffee and because I am a cheap bastard, I used the cup holder from my golf bag. It's secure on the handlebar, it swivels and is on a clip for easy removal. I can also swap it over to my old Yamaha anytime I want.

you could always attach a heavy duty magnet to the inside of the bag and buy a steel tumbler w/ close-able lid.

I'm with 2cool on this one, there are lots of companies out there that make hot beverage containers that won't spill, just go to Walmart and get one for $20.00

Well I used to do that too, cuz I had a favorite mug. I wrapped an old leather jacket sleeve around the mug and jammed the rest of the jacket into the saddlebag. Never had a spill.

Then I graduated to 2cool’s age old concept. It’s a cheap thermos, our company gave them to us. It’s steel, shaped like a milk bottle with a screw on cap. I didn’t like it cuz it worked too good, the coffee stayed too hot for a ridiculously long time. So I started putting 3 ice cubes in it before I leave for work. Perfect. Plus It’s tough, I drop the thing on concrete all the time and all it does is get scratched.

Get yourself a set of saddlebag doors. You can attach any cupholder to it as well. I have a set and love em.
