What antenna are you running, Tim? Mine is a super-flexy whip, so I never worry about hitting trees.

SBB-1, it's like a rubber duck that now has 2-3 permanent bends...

Same setup as you only mine is mounted on the right side...Go figure

On my 70 my antenna is on the arb. Seems to work well enough that i've never had a problem.

The HT on 5w didn't seem to reach out all that far so the wife asked why i didn't buy one for her cruiser. She liked Nathaniel's commentary of the run. I'll probably do a fender mount/hood mount if I don't get a bar on the 80.
