Nice! However- please get rid of the harness and get something that attaches to your helmet or your bike itself.

The body moves around way too much for people to enjoy the movies much. Need a more stable picture :)

Thanks for posting, and nice bike (love Kawasaki green)

Here is the versys with the harness but have found that if i go into more attack mode on bike i crouch into a more sports postion so need to be aware when filming but can also tilt camera back further and maybe adjust harness so camera higher but determined to get best out of harness with so with more trials.

Its a process Phil. I bought about 6 different types of mounts before i got what worked best and where.


Best place for nice steady video or photos. Ram strap mount on front fork..

Best place for photos...Ram ball mounted to windscreen bracket..

Great place for steady video or photos at a rear view. Ram U-Bolt mount attached to Givi Rack hard to see in the photo just behind the turn signal under the topcase..

For me the more positions you have to film from the better. I have the harness and use it a lot but I typically use the footage from there to spice up footage from the helmet cam. If you are looking to record an actual ride I find that is the best as it sees what you see, but I interject that with shots from the bike to make it all more interesting.

Nice backyard you have there :)

edit: here is an older video of mine with shots from front, back, harness and helmet. Sorry, can't seem to embed from vimeo

This vid was on my way back and left the group for a while, at around the 4 min mark you see what happens when you to close to white line going around a right hander when a bus comes and at 5:14 a bit of wheel slip of rear wheel slip on roads works, it was very hot and some of the new road chip patchs can be like marbles so pays to not be on a lean of any kind!

Looks like you got the positioning of the harness figuired out. Bad spot to meet a bus.

Harness works for me so should be good to get some better vids when on next big away trip.

Have you tried the camera at 720p & 60fps? It'll make your battery last longer and save space on your computer.

Here is my attempt to be creative, black and white with music, cut down one of my longer vids to just over 3 minutes, any feedback welcome.

Now I'm getting paranoid

Every post with a video from Kiwi, instead of the video clip, their's the mention "no video"

Am I bared, blackout ???

Need to see a shrink I think ... :(

Sometimes if the music is copyrighted. A video can't be shown in certain countries. I have alot of videos that can't be played in germany because of that.

Wow !

That's pretty amazing, that somehow, the forum can make that distinction and prevent me (or others, I guess) from seing those video

Thank's for the info Weljo2001
