Enter the Dashlink Docking Console. It’s actually a replacement fuel tank complete with dock, line out audio, power and integrated volume control through the stock handlebars (select models only). They say it takes as little as 15 minutes to install, which sounds a bit too good to be true.
If you’re concerned about the fuel/power combination, you can take some comfort in knowing that they’ve designed it to include a smart charging system with self-sensing on/off circuit to detect when a device is present. Course, that doesn’t do you any good when the device is present and the tank is topped off with fire hungry fuel.
The tank/dock fits Harley-Davidson 1996 and newer FLHT/FLTR & FLHR models and they’ll soon have a version for the Sportster, Softail & Dyna.
You can order the Dashlink Gas Tank directly for $399.95, with shipping commencing January 15th, 2011.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
