    I mounted my Evo to my 1990 BMW K75s using the hard backing of the seidio limited edition case. Mounted that to my bike, and snap in my Evo anytime I want to ride with music (plug in my ear buds), or GPS.

    Love this phone. Pics below.

    Wow nice. I'd be worried about that thing popping out over a bump though. My dad had a K75s back in the day...'89 or '90.

    very clean very nice....

    but i would think that the face of the phone is facing the sky to directly. EVO has a lot of glare. If you are trying to view the EVO (GPS or other) you will have a hard time.

    I'm riding to Detroit and Toronto from Chicago Mon - Thurs. Then I'm riding to Indianapolis from Chicago Tues - Wed. I just bought this bike with 6,600 miles on it last season, and I've been putting some miles on it.

    I took the back part of THIS EVO COVER, put some stick plastic velcro (the kind of stuff you use for an ez-pass/ipass stuck to your windshield for tolls). I have an additional strip on my bike. I'm thinking about reinforcing the plastic sticky velcro stuff with super glue, but I don't think it's necessary. Seems pretty damn solid, I've put a good 200 miles of highway riding (70-90mph), and it doesn't move. It sits kind of in the sweet spot under the cover of my windshield.

    I use it mostly to listen to music. I put the player on shuffle, click the phone into the mount face-down (as to avoid any debris from the road snagging the screen), plug my ear buds in, and listen to my music. I haven't used it much for GPS yet, but I imagine I will when I'm out of town. Mid-day it is harder to read the screen (when the sun is beating down on it), but a cup of the hand quickly fixes that. Otherwise, it seems to work great for GPS when I tested it.
