    How do you carry your iPhone on a motorcycle to make sure it doesn't ever fly out or off ? I always wondered this.

    Most motorcycle jackets have a pocket inside them for your phone. A lot of those pockets are waterproof. even the non-phone specific pockets zip up to prevent losing stuff.

    If you want to mount it to use as a GPS, look up RAM mounts.


    (I commute pretty much every day via motorcycle)

    It's probably not a good habit, but I've had success carrying my phone in my right front jean pocket on my (relaxed sitting) cruiser. But when I wear my jacket (probably another bad habit, but some summer days can be unbearable on an air cooled engine), it's in the left inside zippered pocket as mentioned above .
    When I use it as a GPS, I go only by voice directions and Apple watch taptic buzzes. In summer months there is too much glare on the screen, and I don't like taking me eyes off the road (yeaa a good habit!).

    Inside jacket pocket or left front jeans pocket. My old 5s was mostly in my jeans but the jacket became more necessary for the 6s+ when I upgraded. I'm not sure what I'll do on the 5 or 6 days a year that are too hot for the jacket (in Minnesota it rarely gets over 95.) I might just use it as a reason to suck it up and wear the jacket since it is armored I should probably just bite the bullet.

    Its never too hot for a jacket, get an air mesh jacket.

    I've been riding around here in 45 degrees C last week (113 F) on top of a sports bike that climbs to 108 C (226 F) at lights.
