Angeles Crest Hwy 4 29 2012

Fantastic day for a ride. Warm tempertures and snow in the mountains. The guy on the vulcan with the handicap plates went back to the place he crashed 15 years ago that left him in a coma and busted up from head to toe. You can see him pointing in one of the photos were he went off the cliff. Believe me he's one lucky guy after seeing have far down and steep it was were he went off. In the photo's video the first song is dedicated to our waitress.She went for a tea refill for me and i'm still waiting on it

Looks like a great ride man. Are you using a GoPro camera? If so, what mount do you use? (I'm thinking about buying one).

I have the Drift 170HD Camera. Had 2 on the bike yesterday one for video and one for photos that was set to take a picture every 10 seconds.

Had the one camera mounted to the windscreen with a suction ram mount. Rigged up 2 safety cords just incase the mount let go. Good thing i did that because coming home on the freeway i hit a hole doing about 75 that damn near knocked my teeth loose and the mount let go but the safety set-up worked. Got a great idea for a mounting solution so i just ordered whats needed and will post how it comes out.

Thanks for the input Joseph. That looks like a pretty good setup. The photo in the link looks like the base that clamps to the fork has some kind of solid strapping. Is the band clamp in your photo part of the way it is shipped, or did you Jerry-rig it?

Heres some photos of the day. First link is with the point and shoot camera. The second link is the second Drift camera. Just 100+ of the 645 photos it took.
