Question GPS mountings for RS

Has anyone ever mounted a GPS onto their Triumph (specifically an RS)? I am looking for suggestions. I know that there are some companies that make mounts however I do not know where one would fit without getting in the way of the clip-ons. Suggestions?

i have a speed four and have been trying to figure out a way for a while now how to get one on, the only mounts i've seen that would probably work are like $150, and the gps only cost $100, not to mention i got it for free when my dad bought a better one, so i'm not paying $150 for a mount, he made a mount for his with a few things combined with the $15 bicycle mount they make, so i'm probably just gonna buy some of the same peices and make one, there's a little bit of room on the left handlebar, move my mirror 1/4th inch to the right, and the thing with the horn and turn signals to the left 1/4th inch and there'll be room to clamp it on, if you've figured anything out by now let me know,
if not, when i get mine to work i'll email you pictures,

Josh, a buddy of mine actually used some zip ties and fabricated a mount. I dont have any pictures of it, but if you want I am sure we can get together and do a little brainstorming.

People put it in the clear pocket of a tank bag, also the gps company makes bike mounts. The Sportrak I have does.
