There are not many may official GPS mounting systems, brackets or kits for motorcycles in general. Some are quite in-expensive so there's no reason why you can't simply buy one. 

However like many there aren't too many places on the motorcycle where you can actually fit the kit in a aesthetically or visible position securely or convenient to attach or take off.  Also many can't see the point of paying more money or simply 'do it yourself' type of people. I'm both so here's some of my solutions I've tried in mounting a car based and motorcycle based GPS system on my motorcycles.

The picture below is a proper motorcycle GPS system that's mounted on the centre of the Hayabusa handle bars using the supplied generic kit. Due to the lack of space on the bars I've used the centre nut on the steering to attached the base. 

It is quite secure but occasionally detaches - it doesn't fall completely off due to the wiring harness however it is annoying when it does but a cheap solution. Prior solutions to this one can be seen further below are even easier and cheaper,

The pictures below show another setup using a car base portable GPS system. I used this for a while and never fell off while riding but I was never really happy with it. Only try this if you have a old GPS unit you no-longer care about destorying.
