RAM Mounts U-Bolt Base 4.7 5 19 19
Works like a charm! My Audace has Bluetooth which interfaces with the Moto Guzzi iPhone app to display various pieces of information about my bike. The Audace, like most cruisers, doesn't come from the factory with a phone mount. I went to a local motorcycle accessory store (sorry Revzilla, I needed it immediately...or so I thought) and they had a kit that included a Ram Mount X-Grip to hold the phone and a fork stem mount. The fork stem mount seems to work but I'm not 100% certain that it won't start moving around a little. Worse, the drag bars on my bike limit the adjustment so when the sun starts glaring off the screen it is difficult to quickly move the phone without stopping the bike. Revzilla to the rescue! I ordered the U-Bolt base and installed it on my handlebars near the left grip. It mounts securely without any wiggling or wobbling. Even better, it allows the X-Grip to be clear of the bike so I can adjust the position of my phone all I want. I subtracted a star because I consider it a bit pricey for a u-bolt, 2 screws, and 2 nuts. However, that is typical for Ram Mount items in general and at least the quality is there. It does come with a couple of black rubber caps to put over the end of the bolts/nuts but I'm pretty sure it won't be long until they fly off (which is no big deal, I don't think it looks bad without them). My only suggestion for potential owners is that you'd do well to invest in some Plasti Dip and rubberize the u-bolt where it makes contact with the handlebars. I haven't gotten around to it yet and my bars haven't been scratched but it's not worth the risk of marring the finish. If this is a solution for your mounting problem then you can't go wrong with the Ram Mount U-Bolt Base. August 22, 2015
Easy Versatile mount system. I use it on both my bikes. June 15, 2015
Pallet on my bmw k1600gt If you ride and have a cell phone, you need this product. I have this in combination with the short arm and x-holder. It's secure and never moves. It's a must have. Now for a Bluetooth lol May 27, 2015
Works as intended This RAM mount does exactly what I want it to do (attach my phone to my handle bars) but I wish the U part was rubber coated as opposed to painted metal. It will scratch your handle bars if you don't put tape on them first. Minor gripe. April 29, 2015
Easy to install and works perfectly. Super easy to install and super secure. I have complete confidence that this will hold my devices safely. April 13, 2015
Solid as a rock I love the RAM mount equipment. I can move my GPS from one bike to another quickly, easily and reliably. April 10, 2015
Great for my Vstrom This fit perfectly on the handlebar of my Vstrom. I ordered two but so far have only used one to hold my phone. April 6, 2015
RAM Mounts are great. I really enjoy the versatility they provide. I can put all kinds of mounts on it. Radar, phone, GPS, spot light, coffee mug holder, DVD player. March 2, 2015
