I tend to go places for the first time pretty often...and pulling over to take out my phone to check my gps every time I get lost is a bit of a hassle. Ideally, I'd like something that sat dead center on my bars, and rather low as well. I've looked at the "RAM fork stem base" one and it looked pretty sweet.
Figured I'd ask to see what other people had before I went and purchased this. Any input would be appreciated--thanks.
That stem mount sucks balls. Big Harry balls. Had it on the VFR and hated it. Always wanted to rotate and come loose on me.
I would try and find a stem mount (with RAM ball) that doesn't have a lever. Or mount it somewhere other than your stem.
For holding the phone, RAM-MOUNT X-GRIP all the way. It's been rock solid for me for years.
If you have an iPhone... Hitcase plus ram attachments

Same as dave, I went with one of the Ubolts and its awesome. I have mine center and low so it doesn't block any of the gauges but still good for a quick glance.
Also I went on a 250ish mile cruise a couple weeks where I was at 75+ for extended periods of time and the phone never budged. I do have the oem fly screen, which seems to direct air just above where the phone is mounted
I use a generic minura camera mount thats metal, and a nootle (sp?) Cell phone mount with standard thread on back. This goes on my handle bar...putting it on the stem would seem to make it too low for me.
