    Can the Ipad handle the vibrations of a motorcycle? If I get one it will see a significant amount of miles. Just wondering if this will kill or shorten the life of the Ipad?

    Most definable if you mount it on the handlebars.

    Definitely not mounting on the handle bars. I'll just be toting it around in my rear case.

    As long as it's not riding freestyle in your bag and has some sort of dedicated case or protective sleeve it will be fine.

    The iPad has no moving parts so it'll be fine. Its not a laptop. I've been commuting with my iPad in my backpack on my motorcycle since day 1.

    Nothing has ever happened to mine, or my laptops for that matter, but I usually use a messenger bag. Just make sure its in something padded. On an aside, this is why I got the Verizon one.

    Thanks! But why did you choose the Verizon one?
