    This guy made his own EVO mount for his car by using a case, and some ingenuity.

    am i crazy or does mounting to the end of the handle bars seem rediculous ? If I'm putting a navigation on any of my bikes it will be tucked in against the windshield and near the ignition

    Motorcycle Handlebar Mount for Apple iPhone 3G S - eBay (item 350215984117 end time Apr-11-11 10:05:31 PDT)

    these style scare the crap out of me. not only would it be a problem if it rained but for some reason i just see a big pot hole and me dropping the bike trying to catch my phone

    i just saw the link i posted was for smaller smart phones. this one would work for the bolt

    make a lot more sense to mount in the middle ..I can see how having them mounted off center will cause problems and probably fatalities

    the only reason i wouldnt mount in the middle is it blocks my guages without a serious lean but i use my phone to replace my guages anyway so i dont need to see the time, tripometer, or mph

    Here's my motorcycle mount. Bag is secured to the windshield, so it's going nowhere, also has a zip tie around it to prevent the mount from flying through the air at 70 mph or higher.

    I wish I had another camera to take pictures of the TB on the mount. Maybe tomorrow I'll bug my wife to use her iPuke and take a couple more pics with it on the mount. The phone snugly fits in the charger port and the top part snaps over the top of the phone. And, again, I have that black rubberband for the heck of it around the top part of the phone, although I don't think that's even necessary. I just wanted you to see what my solution was.

    I have a Vulcan 1600 Classic. It's the one I have in my Avatar.

    i may have to try a mount like that if i cant get the one i posted to work... i was just always worried about it popping out.

    i squinted trying to figure out if it was a mean streak or not lol. saw the fenders and then i figured i ask what you had.
    when you mentioned charger, did you just add a cig lighter charger?
