Talking Experimenting with gopro mounts.

check out a couple minutes of this mornings commute. I built a mount that sticks up about 19 inches form the rear passenger seat compartment. Had to remove the seat because it mounts to 4 of the bolts under the seat that are holding the tail section together. After seeing this video. I raised it up a couple of inches. Which doesn't do a whole lot until I drop into a race tuck (or at least the closest thing I can get to it). Then that extra couple of inches shows up real nice. I'll post up a pic pf the mount when I can but right now it's raining.

The ride was coming over the Fred Hartman a permit load had the traffic all jammed up. Which is why I love riding a motorcycle so much in traffic. It's almost effortless to slice thru and be on my way, leaving all those poor saps in the cages..

One more note. I was using the HD3 black and streaming the video to my Galaxy Tab w/gopro app. Which is velcro'd in a waterproof pouch to my fuel tank. I can work the camera and watch myself as it records.

Vid looks good.
I used a broom stick and tried with PVC. PVC was too flimsy. I'll try with conduit next time. Too lazy to post the video.

This looks great Reese! I was thinking on how to do it, but I came up with one single rod. This looks pretty solid though. I guess I'll try to see how you did it on a future ride.
