If you’re considering mounting your phone to your bike, the primary question to consider is probably an obvious one: Where?
And, of course, the best answer will depend on the design of your particular bike. Regardless, you have a few different options:
In addition to the mount of your choice, you’ll also need a carrier that can hold your phone. Look for a universal phone carrier that can be adjusted to fit your particular smartphone model. In addition, you can also find water resistant carriers that help protect your device from the elements.
Instruments and sensors inside modern smartphone cameras can be susceptible to damage when exposed to heavy vibrations like those experienced on a motorcycle handlebar or chassis. That’s why Harley-Davidson offers an easy-to-install anti-vibration module that not only help protect smartphones from vibrations but help them remain securely mounted.
Waterproof phone cases can be paired with motorcycle phone mounts and universal phone carriers in order to protect devices from dust and rain out on the road. However, if you would prefer to avoid the bulk of a waterproof case after you’re done with your ride, you can also turn to Harley-Davidson’s rigid water-resistant carrier designed to guard your phone against the elements.
Yes. Using a phone holder on your motorcycle enables you to ride hands-free and avoid the unsafe (and typically illegal) practice of holding your phone while riding. Nevertheless, it’s important to practice safe riding habits while using a motorcycle phone mount. Harley-Davidson® handlebar and clutch mounts can keep phones conveniently located without interfering with riders’ ability to manipulate their bike or access controls.
With the help of a Bluetooth® helmet or headset, riders can maintain a hands-free connection to their devices without necessarily mounting them to their bike. Store your phone in a tank bag or other accessory bag option, and you’ll still be able to hear your music, directions, or riding partners loud and clear—and easily access your phone during pit stops.
