Works perfectly.
I'll check that out. Don't know if it will fit my Note 2. Its hugenourmous...

I've got an HTC One X which is pretty large as well. The brackets can be opened up pretty large. I'd search the reviews on Amazon or GPS City and see if anyone may have your phone and has reviewed it. I've ridden all sorts of gravel and fire roads in WV and never had a problem with it coming loose or the phone falling out.

Curious, how do you score vacation right after you move? Wish I had it like that

Well since I am a transfer I kept all my vacation time from my previous position. Which amounts to about 5 weeks they owe me. As of January 1, 2014 they will take 4 of those 5 weeks without giving me a penny. So it's use it or lose it time. I have been doing nothing but training for the last 3 weeks and it's time for a break.

Yes, I use the same mount with an S3. You have to be careful to not put one of the fingers over the volume button but otherwise it works well.

Hey guys and gals! If the weather holds out would anyone care to go for a trail ride on Friday or Saturday? Unfortunately I am new to the area so I don't have (know) anywhere to ride yet. I ride a 250 so I would love as little highway as possible to get there!

I'm near colonial Williamsburg, but an hour's ride to reach nice trails is fine.

How's Damneck these days? I haven't been out there in several months. I drove by the other day and it looks like Taylor Farms is doing a little landscaping back there. Both spots I used to drive in are now blocked off.

Virginia Beach sucks.

We have the wrong hobby for living in this area.

Bummer! I always end up riding alone because my windows of opportunity to ride are unpredictable.

Yep, I wish I could convince myself that my favorite thing to do was fish.
