Any of you gentlemen use the above phone mounts? There is not a lot of real estate on the TW200 handlebar so I was wondering about adaptability. Thanks for any comments.
Hondo perfect squeeze phone mount.

That one does not look like it gives much lead way for location.

I got the Ram Mount from Cyclegear. Dang near perfect for a TW. Holds my GPS.

I love mine and I don't even put it on the handle bars. I use a 3" RAM mount to the shock support bolt to give it extra vibration resistance and adjust-ability. My last phone mount was hard mounted and broke my iPhone camera due to the vibrations.

This is what I've used for a couple years now. USed on my TW, Thruxton R, Speed Triple. Holds phones really well, lots of adjustment. Even with some. . . . I'll call it "bird watching hooliganism" phone has never come close to coming out. They also make a powered base version that you can setup to keep your phone charged.

I have a ram x-grip on a 3" extension. Allows a lot of movement, and rotate and swivel my phone up to take video while riding if I want. I have taper bars and risers, so not really a stock setup but works well.

The note about vibration killing phone cameras is no joke. Really any phone with mechanical stabilization or lenses is at risk, which most mid to upper range phones have in the past few years. I haven't had issues with my TW, but by Scout killed like 3 phone cameras within about 2 months mounted to the handlebars. The camera would lose focus and was permanently blurry, and eventually would just give an error as soon as you tried to use the camera app with a clicking noise from the lens.

Newer phones are getting away from the "floating mirror" and doing the same effects through software, so the actual camera has no moving parts and is more durable.
