Hey, I have a PRE, too. :)

Just IMHO.... I personally wouldn't want it mounted on the bike,
though.  I doubt it'll stand up to that kind of vibration and
environmental exposure.  I think you'd be far better off with a Zumo
or the like (which I have, too).  I love the Zumo, fantastic gizmo.
The GPS apps on the Palm are nice and all but nowhere near the
usability of the motorcycle-enabled units like the Zumo.

That said - on my bikes, I have a RAM clutch reservoir mount, along
with corresponding parts like the ball arm, a ball plate for the back
of the GPS mount, and so forth.  It's really a nice rig, if a little
pricey.  Most of the kit came with the Zumo, a factor in the price of
the Zumo that's worth considering.
