I think this is the best solution,

Take a drink before you leave, if you get thirsty, look for a nice terrace or bar.
You leave the cellphone at home because you want to enjoy the ride .
GPS was not there before so drive where ever the road takes you.

In this case your Heritage will continue to look nice and you have nothing to worry about.

Sorry i have no other advice for you , maybe another forum member has a solution for your problem.

I put my cell phone in jacket pocket, and always have a small bottle of water in saddlebag. If I get thirsty, I'll stop and get a drink.

If you are on the bike a lot never mind esthetics. You want comfort here is a pic of my cup holder i need it when i leave the hotel just before the sun comes up.

I've got my QuadLock mount on my left handlebar, since that hand is "free" more of the time.
Cup holder on the right side, which is convenient enough since my 16 Heritage has cruise control.

Truth is, my cupholder gets used more to hold my gloves when I get off the bike. Or to hold my cigarettes while I'm riding. (They don't blow out of there, but god forbid I have them in my shirt pocket -- whoosh! Gone!

And it won't really matter how you put them on or what product you use, someone, somewhere, will think it looks bad. Don't worry about others, do what works for you.

last week i rode to the drive-in restaurant in the next town over. (20 minute interstate ride). Got a double bacon cheese burger, small o ring and a banana shake.
as i was finishing up the burg, i notice the wind picking up. looked up and saw a blackkkk cloud moving in.
so i scarfed the o rings and tried to drink the shake, but it was still too frozen to slurp thru the normal sized straw. but, it was delicious and i wanted it
so i got on my bike, put the shake between my legs and hit the road. it worked pretty well. until the last 5 miles. i passed a semi and the side wind blew the cup out from my legs.
my bike looked like my ex girlfriends back.

moral of the story... i wouldnt mind a cup holder either. but i kee

p my distraction (cell phone) in my pocket until i need directions, then i pull over and check it.

Trying to meet up with the group I was riding with,I ate a cheeseburger and fries while riding my '83 Wideglide. I asked the waitress to throw it all in a bag,but she did me a 'favor' and put it in a styrofoam clamshell. Unhandy as hell for eating on the road,but I only lost a few fries.
