cup / water bottle holder?

Having a hard time finding a water bottle holder for the Rebel 500 handle bars...
They are thicker than normal bars AND the gas tank will hit it because it sits so high up when fully turned right or left...
I was thinking of those holders that mount on the bard then go straight up...

Anyone have any suggestions and or links to use on a 2017 Honda Rebel 500 ?

Thanks!

You need to carry water on your bike?

Where are you riding, in the Mojave desert?

What about on the side frame, the tube is thinner than the bars.

You could also get a cycle bidon and strap it to the frame tubes with heavy duty zip ties.

I have a bicycle bottle holder with the clamp fitting that clamps anywhere on the frame.
Great for those quick stop refreshments on hot days.

I mounted a $5 ebay special on the front of the frame. Works perfectly. Can get a little warm, but not if you're moving!

I found one that doesn't get in the way of the tank and fit the handlebar...

I can vouch for the ebay special as well, have one mounted in the same spot and holds a water bottle perfectly fine at highway speeds 70+

It's this one. $18.95! (I'm a cheapskate)

Neat. At high speeds you can just squirt out a little, and it'll hit your mouth! Practical
