Just remember:

* Get the Industrial Duty Velcro, with extra-strength adhesive.
* Check the integrity of the Velcro's attachment regularly.
* Attach the FUZZY side to the device, so you're not always scratching yourself or stuff.
* Make SURE you want to do this; that stuff DOES stick and will bring any surface with it when removed.
* Think outside the box; I used Velcro on my arm cast to hold my Pocket PC when I broke my wrist.

Oh, and I cringed when I saw the motorcycle thing. THAT'S only the kind of thing you do when you're getting freebie devices for making commercials and videos.
