Hi Pete,

Thanks for the pics! Really helpful. It looks a good stable mounting. That would position quite a bit lower than I currently ride with. When I mount my camera it is with the suction cup and the camera ends up around level with the top of the screen.

I will be interested to see what view you manage to record with the camera there. Look forward to seeing some samples!  :002:

Hi Kevin,
As shown, I originally had mine mounted behind the screen. This took a lot of the clarity out of the footage, especially if the sun shone across the screen.
When my pillion hand held the camera (away from the screen), the clarity was pin sharp. So I am hoping to get some clear footage tomorrow, although according to the forecast, sunshine won't be an issue. :006:
One thing that I am anticipating is more wind noise on the recording. But this can always be edited out. :152:

Actually Pete that's a real nice mount..  I like it a lot.  My GoPro I just stuck it on the inside of the screen on top of the plastic-did the job tho.

Unfortunately the GoPro broke down so I gave up on it n got a refund, the I went back to my Drift helmet mount which actually works quite well..

We all need an 'idiot cam'

After watching professional footage using a camera fitted on a motorbike on U tube, bike reviews etc, the most watchable all include part of the bike in shot such as the front wheel with the moving suspension or the camera behind the rider showing the movement of the handlebars and picking up the bike as it leans in relation to the road and hedges etc, along with helmet mounting footage, all edited so that no one angle of view is maintained and you become bored watching.
Would love to get even close to something like that so have bought a few RAM ball mounts and fitted one on the extra mirrors I use when touring and one on the crash bars,working on the posistion of camera for a from behind shot. All I need then is the will to stop and set up and use the camera when reaching beautiful or interesting places.

I use a Fat Geko seen here

and the video can be seen here


It is mounted just above the right hand indicator.

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

So its been a while (Summer of 2015),
If anyone is still checking this thread out, I just want to advise that mounting the GoPro on the screen with the Wunderlic camera mount is maybe not the best idea :003:.
I have covered several k and found a fair amount of footage was not usable :430:.
Unless you ride on perfect black top, the screen/camera vibrates too much.
I am going to see if I can mount the camera support just above the headlight, where it should be rigid :084:.
