I am using this stuff from Radio Shack that is not velcro but a locking panel sort of like velcro, for heavy objects, it sticks on in strips in two sections (like velcro stick on). I put it in the center top portion of the windshield, because it is the only place I can see the unit when I am riding.
Then I have the cord (they use modular telephone plugs) coming off the top triple tree, with power hard wired into the bike directly to the battery (with a fuse).
You can get an accessory for Valentine One that will allow the use of a headphone, which helps, but it means not using one earplug, which on my bike is not desireable (very loud exhaust system at highway speeds).
I contacted the company that makes the intercom I use on the bike (Autocom, in England) to see if they can make me a plug for the headphone, so the signal can be amplified. Now I have to figure out the time change from Pacific Coast to England.
