Motorcycle camera/mount for Trackdays

I really want to work on my body positioning during my next trackday. I want camera footage that will show myself, the bike, and the track so I have been trying to find a rear mount camera, as in on or above the tail section. Are there any tail mount cameras that point forwards? OR, does anyone have a better idea?

HAving someone follow you with a camera will be your best bet IMO. Then again I'm not a racer so I could be full of .

I have seen alot of hand made mounts in my day. Have MaXGs video you on a trackday, what level are you in? I take it you have a go pro?

I was thinking more along the lines of a pen camera that is corded to a recording system and mounting the pen at the rear facing forward and the recording system under the seat. Those systems are 700$ though so im gonna wait . I will just pay the little bit of money and have someone follow me for now.

I still want to figure out the mount for when I do get the money though. It cant be completely solid if its elevated from the tail because it could getcha when you have a getoff......How do they get the shots in moto gp and world superbike?

I have a similar system that you speak of. It is a bullet cam and I got it for a little over 250 bucks. I have a few mounting positions that I've used but never found one for the rear. I have looked for the mounts like they have in MotoGP but haven't found anything. All it really shows is your hanging off the seat some.

I've seen some videos of guys who have fabricated their own mount and screwed it into the tail section. Let me look real quick.

I really have enjoyed my GoPro Hero Wide! They give you plenty of mounts and mounting possibilities too, and the picture is fantastic from a camera that costs a little over $100. Pert near indestructable, waterproof case, and the ability to go straight from the track to the video monitor.

Worth it, coolest little moto toy I've ever bought.

Mine came with a suction cup mount also. I move it all around and it works great. Then again, I'm also a racer so its possibly I have no idea what I'm talking about.

Mine came with the suction cup mount too, but there's not a large enough flat area anywhere to actually use it.

'04 gixxer 6 here. Nose and tail are both to sharply angled. I might could put it off-center on the nose I guess....

I had a brilliant person make a custom mount for mine on the front and it takes all of the little bit of vibration that the camera's IS doesn't catch. Gives an incredibly stable picture that way

Easy to make, but I promised the person who concieved the bracket that I wouldn't spread it around. If you want to contact him, he may be able to help by selling you the plans or selling you a bracket. I'm sure it wouldn't be too expensive- certainly worth whatever he would charge.

But I was a racer, so I probably don't know what I'm talking about

It's kind of a pita, but it turns out pretty well.
