Cup holders are notoriously "tippy". I switched to this instead.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

I have a garauld TechWorks cooler setup, that I have yet to use. I also have precisely the holder
that damir posts. It works great as long as you donít use the included coozie, which puts the drink too high and upsets the center of balance, and as long as you donít use too tall a bottle.

Iíve heard that, during commutes, you can actually drink from them.

If you don't have a hydration pak mounted on your passenger footpeg or in your backpack...... I have seen a handy dandy water bottle holder for bicycles, if you can find a spot to mount it.... had the gimbal type on my Goldwing way back, but I've moved on....

Unlike other models, the FJR doesn't have a lot of handle bar room for cup holders when lock-to-lock.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

This is probably something like what RaYzerman is referring to: "Hot Leathers - Quick Release Drink Holder", $19.95USD. Google it. Holds standard sports-type water bottles and some drink bottles (Coke, Pepsi, Gatorade,etc.), and would likely hold certain sizes of insulated cups. I have one mounted nearly horizontal on the left side (so I can grab it while keeping my right hand on the throttle and fingers poised over the brake) Altrider crash bars of my Super Tenere. Mounting it on the left side vertical bar left me with a hot beverage. I plan on getting one for my FJR and mounting it on the left side bar of the T-Rex engine cage, if I ever get to retrieve my T-Rex cage from SC where it's stuck due to some sort of virus that's apparently going around.

Cup holder ideas?

Never even considered it.

My state has an "open container" law, which does not mention alcohol by name, so the police can and will give you a ticket for having an open (or empty) bottle of spring water, as well as anything else. What? you were just picking up some roadside litter? Must be inside a trash bag, here's your ticket. Welcome to Utah.

No kidding.
