Mounts for a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic Motorcycle

I recently took a look at a  Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle while visiting my local Harley showroom here in New Jersey.  I should have taken a photo of the two-up seat because that’s as close to a living room as I have seen on a motorcycle. The photo that accompanies this article is of a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic cockpit.  There are two excellent locations for mounting a device in the handlebar and clutch.  That’s typical for many Harley models.  While I suppose we could also go with a gas tank mount, I think it would look awkward so … Read more…

OnePlus 3 Car and Motorcycle Mounts

The OnePlus 3 SmartPhone is the successor to the very successful OnePlus 2.  What’s different?  A lot.  A faster processor, 16MP camera, slightly larger in size and a new operating system.  This is normally sold as an unlocked phone which means this will work with multiple carriers.

Mounts for Yamaha YZF-R3 Motorcycles

The Yamaha YZF-R3 is one of the company’s best selling motorcycles.  The challenge of mounting anything on this model motorcycle is the lack of a traditional handlebar.  Brands like Harley-Davidson make mounting phones, GPS devices and cameras easy because these have a traditional handlebar with a lot of real estate.  Just pick a well made handlebar mount with a quality holder, attach it to the handlebar and off you go.  Not so with the Yamaha YZF-R3.  So let’s take a look at some options. As I investigated what types of mounts fit the Yamaha YZF-R3, I found it to be … Read more…
