I have used this for several years and it does a great job of keeping the ice water cold. I like it so well that I transferred it to my 1800 from the 1500 I sold.
I have had my Butler cup since I purchased it at the 1999 Honda Hoot in Ashville, NC. It was installed by the Butler Cup rep. on the spot. I totaled my bike two years later, the lid cracked and I replaced it with a new one. The cup still functions just the same as when purchased so many years ago. I have recommended to many people through the years. Keep up the good work.
I agree with the reviewer that said the cup looks stupid on his wing. It is a bit dorky and if your looking for"Cool" or "Style", this isn't it! The cup is very functional and doesn't look totally dorky on my F6B with all the black on it already. The plastic does get worn pretty quick and real scratched in the middle. Probably cuz I always twist it to lock it in place and it's easier to remove when twisted as removing. Overall though, I love having my hot coffee or cold drinks when on a long road trip and for that it can't be beat!
I have had a Butler system on two motorcycles now and would not take a trip without it! 34oz cup keeps you refreshed between stops. One guy stated "it looks stupid." I don't get it because you can move the holder around and if a large cup on your motorcycle "looks stupid" then so be it. At least, I am well hydrated! The company that sells this product really backs it up which helps! Go ahead and "look stupid" as 99.9% of people will agree that is is a great product that is very functional!
Please do not get me wrong, the cup itself is great, it keeps hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold. My problem is with the whole placement on the handlebar....it simply made everything look stupid! Riding down the highway all I could see was this big black cup, no matter where I placed it, it seems to get in the way! Standing back and looking at the bike with this cup installed, it made me realize what everyone was staring at, "This cup makes my 2015 GL1800 Goldwing looks stupid!" I took it off and now keep the cup in the trunk until I can find a better way to make accessible to me while driving.
I got this back in 2010 and every time I straddle my machine this cup goes with me. Even if it is a short trip around town. I have to have my coffee. Most of the time I use it for hot coffee but sometimes I have used it for a cold Frappuccino. And it does a great job of keeping things hot or cold. I have used this cup for a few thousand miles and it is still like new. Just remember, when your putting the cap on the cup either put your finger over the end of the straw or put that little cap on the end of the straw or the coffee will press up thru the straw and splash all over you if you don't cover the end of the straw
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
