Our latest update introduces the Tackform Universal in place of its predecessor, the Tackform Solutions RidePro. This recent incarnation is certainly one of the more aesthetically-pleasing models on the market and is very easy to set up one-handed, keeping your bike steady with the other hand as you install your device. It is also available in black or chrome, to suit a variety of vehicles.
There are often occasions when you will be riding over rough terrain, but if you make a habit of it, then the GUB Plus 6 is a worthy choice. It features a locking clamp with a knurled thumb screw to tighten, and has a reassuringly rugged aluminum frame with rubber gaskets for protection. If dirt bikes, ATVs, or mountain bikes are your thing, this mount is well worth considering.

Just like when driving a car, having your phone mounted in a convenient place on your motorcycle makes for safer riding. It also makes checking Google maps, changing songs, and answering calls significantly more convenient. These days, motorcycle phone mounts come in a variety of forms and we want to make sure our list reflected that variety.
Without a doubt, the most secure option is the Tackform Enduro Series PM11. Unlike other models, which generally clamp over the round portion of the handlebars, this unit screws directly into the bolt holes on your brake or clutch reservoir, so there is no chance it slipping if properly installed. We also like that is has a small arm with two ball joints to provide a high degree of adjustability.
Of course, not everybody wants to deal with screwing something directly onto their motorcycle. If you fall into this category, you'll probably appreciate one of the many models on our list that offer tool-free installation, such as the Tackform Solutions RidePro, Caw.Car Accessories Panda Hug, Roam Co-Pilot, Visnfa PB04, and IPow Universal Cradle. These simply slip over your handlebars and have large thumbscrews that allow for finger tightening.
If you are handy with electrical wiring and don't mind a slightly longer installation process, the Meetou QC 3.0 USB rewards you with a quick-charging USB port, so you can always keep your device topped up on long rides.
Whatever model you decide to go with, it is important that you never let your phone distract you from the road and always wear a DOT-approved helmet and other protective riding gear.
