    phone holder?

    I want something to hold my phone on the bike. A buddy has a ram mount on his KTM 1190 adventure and he suggested I get a ram mount. I found what looks like a knock off ram mount on ebay but I am perplexed at how this attaches to the bike....

    I use a ram mount. Not sure if I'd trust a cheap knock off to hold my phone.
    It means I can use it to watch videos when I'm riding to show me how to use my rear brake.

    It would be nice to have the phone visible for when using the Maps / GPS app.

    I don't mind trying a knock off, its the mounting to the bike that puzzles me. Ram seems to offer a u bolt clamp arrangement that goes around the bars to secure the thing to the bike. This mount has a mount that looks to bolt onto something, but what it bolts onto I am unsure of.

    I use this to RAM mount for my handheld Garmin GPS, which also works great for phones or cameras. RAM also sells specific mounts for different phones, and universal phone mounts as well.

    I have found GPS City usually has the best price on genuine RAM products than anything I have found on ebay or Amazon.

    you can get a ram mount from revzilla for cheap.

    I use the phone mount with gp app from time to time, when I'm going places I havent been out of town.

    I have the ram Ball mount that replaces one of your handle bar clamp bolts. And that ball will work with the holder you linked to in your OP. https://www.amazon.com/Ram-Mount-Mot.../dp/B005J43I56
    I used to have th U-Bolt style, but it got in the way of me getting the key in and out of the ignition. And if you have black or gold bars, the u-bolt clamps will eventually wear away the paint on the bar.

    And to krisfz and LouG, I use my ram mount with my Garmin Montana, not my phone, so you can rest easy. I'll be here for the long haul! ;-)
