Re: Camera Mount

There are several ways to mount a camera (or two) to your bike. The best approach is a Ram Mount (http://www.ram-mount.com)

Re: Camera Mount

easiest ram mount might be the Clutch or brake reservoir model.

Re: Camera Mount

I used a ram mount to the handlebars. I had to cut the handle bar cover slightly but it looks good and works great.

Re: Camera Mount

Thanks so far guys. So would you say, the best places to mount a RAM is the handle bar and the clutch and/or the brake reservoir?

Re: Camera Mount

I have this one and it clamps just about anywhere:

My favorite place on the LT is clamping it to the left lower movable vent.

Re: Camera Mount

Ron, I think I will go ahead with your solution. Just great. Also a big thank you to all others those gave me their ideas.

Ron, your video is taken partly on the One Million Dollar HW. Right? Guess I saw the village of Silverton? I`ve been there on a GW in 1996. Fantastic area and scenery.

best regards from Bavaria

Re: Camera Mount

RAM has semi universal clutch or brake reservoir mount plates that simply use small spacers and extended screws on two of the reservoir cover plate screws. I use em on a number of my bikes for mounting various widgets. Just an alternative to something that clamps to your handle bar.

Re: Camera Mount

Look at this mount that was shown on a previous thread. My friend has it on his bike.
