Session 5 mic adapter, mounting for modern motorcycle helmets, phone control, and heat

Has anyone come up with a better solution to the adapter? I bought the adapter and used it a few times but found it to be too cumbersome and reverted to an old Drift for motorcycle vlogging. 

Another issue is that many new motorcycle helmets have channels, grooves, vents, and visor controls in the best places to mount the session. The way around this is to use another adapter, but this also adds to the bulk.

Finally, it's almost impossible to turn off the Session 5 and control the heat.

It seems such a pity that all the Session 5's size is lost if you want to use it on a motorcycle helmet.
