cool angles with the new mounts. I would be afraid I would snag something with that pole sticking out like that lol. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks. The monopod pole retracts, so when I'm on main roads I would just retract it in - I was filming in an industrial part of downtown LA so there wasn't much traffic. And I stayed towards the middle of the road to avoid clipping any signs

where'd you pick up the monopod pole? and how are you mounting to the sissy? Is it just tied on there or do you have some sort of clip?

Monopod is from BestBuy - it's the house brand Dynex, so it's the cheapest one. I think it was $35. As for mounting, I wrap the section that lays across the rear fender in a microfiber cloth to prevent scratching, then I used the extra strong/thick/wide 3M velcro straps used to bundle cables and wires and torque it down to the sissy bar in a few places. It is surprisingly strong, and the 3M velcro isn't going anywhere.

Those are great angles. I would love to see how you mounted it to the handlebars.

I am going to have to play with some of these tonight.

I think it's a cool looking angle though. Attached is a picture of how it looks with the mount on (people looked at me like I was crazy) and here is a link to the video test.

I really like this idea, I think the point of view for the camera is just superb.
I normally use helmet mount, but think the petspective you have with this idea would let viewers see both the rider and pillion having fun!

I was wondering if there is a high enough sissy bar for a Softail Heritage Classic that would allow the camera to be clamped directly to the top of the bar?
