I've got a gps mounted. I believe it makes me safer. When I am going somewhere unfamiliar, I generally don't have to read street signs. A quick glance at the gps tells me when to turn and in what direction. My eyes are on the road more of the time.
Why would you want your cell phone to hold your handlebar? I just use the handlebar clamp...Do you have a cell phone handlebar holder you really like? There are so many to choose from - don't know which one to go with. I need one for my Road King so I can use WAZE on my Galaxy S3 phone.
Just plain common sense the way I see it. :beer:So according to my latest studies, ODOT and FDOT both think looking at, fidgeting with, or otherwise taking attention off the road, is not OK and can loose CDL.
Granted, large part of the lessons are based on safety, and avoiding accidents, there was a nice chapter on recognizing hazards before they become emergencies. Part of that awareness was what the assholes around you are doing. Road rage and innattentive assholes are a couple of the warning signs EVERYBODY now has to pay attention too. Among a few others, was to watch for drives/riders/bikers looking at some device.

I'm just not good at multitasking.
YOU MIGHT MAYBE WANNA CHECK THIS OUT:Thanks for the unhelpful comment, Mother.
I've been calling those driders, they drive their bikes like they're still in a car.YOU MIGHT MAYBE WANNA CHECK THIS OUT:
I tend to agree, my advice is put it in your pocket, got enough assholes in cages trying to kill you because they are to busy texting to have enough concern for any rider's life.

In case you have not noticed, you hit a nerve
Best part about riding with a GPS is geting lost, then using it to figure out where you are so you can get home. I find a GPS far less distracting than trying to glance at a map, or use a sextant as I am sure some of you do.I've been calling those driders, they drive their bikes like they're still in a car.
I always counted it a plus when I got lost.
