(I should probably post up the rest)

How To: Build a Camera Platform with your Motorcycle...

Previous owner removed both mirrors - makes the perfect spot to put RAM balls on either side.

So I can mount short RAM arm along with the Go Pro, and shoot stills as I'm riding. I'll generally put the camera on a one second delay when I see something good coming like a delicious set of curves.




But we want to make things a lot more interesting, then just boring Rider POV shots.

Mount a RAM ball to the rear set bolt: I removed the bolt, and then went to the hardware store to match up the metric threads and buy a longer one.

I got the new longer bolt and RAM arm on, we are ready to go!







The key to getting the reach- getting the camera away from the bike with triangulation, or using two arms.

The key here was a Triple Ball you can see in the photo to make this work.

Ready to capture video- the goal is to get the camera as close to the ground as possible without scraping it on the ground during turns. Yes I've actually done that- leaned the bike over so far- I scraped the camera on the ground & toasted the housing.

Combined 7 different RAM arms to get this reach so can get the camera behind the motorcycle, yet have the arm itself out of view of the camera lens.







Find yourself a nice piece of super twisty road.

Show up at dawn before there are any cars and you have it all to yourself.

Results...

Directly behind the chain-

It would make a much more interesting photo if I could actually see down the road past the rider.





So I want to move the camera position a little further out away from the bike.

Better... But still kind of boring.





Now we're talking-

The illusion of speed and lean. Absolutely love the photo.





Success!!

This is a video screen capture. The knee is only on the ground for a split second so a bit more effort, preferably with the timed photo setting & you can capture this with a photograph- which is generally higher-quality than the video still.




Now, go out and have some fun!!




Note RAM ball on license bracket- and everyone loves the fatty 200 Series. Changes the whole look.

Awesome!

I used my 03 Tuono for touring and it was a great mount. Actually more comfortable than most other bikes I've owned even with the stock seat.

Only problem was it was more wheelie prone with all the gear on the back... though I guess that isn't really a problem per se...

Looking forward to hearing more about the adventures on the Z1000.

One CRG is all you need.





I put RAM balls into the original mirror mounts.

Throttlemeister never worked for me in maintaining a steady speed. Maybe it is the stiff throttle spring on the FZ1
