That is made out of a bag cut in half and the L brackets from hardware store. Those are 2 years old. Great for rain. Next time I will use bigger bag and make sure there are no holes at all. At 30F any little hole becomes a problem.

Clutter? Hmmm, that is my last name. What you don't see is also a 7 inch monitor that goes in top of the gps unit for my night vision camera which goes on my helmet.

Yeap, it gets really sad. I wear 4 devices. 3 are hard wired plus an around the head headset and earmolds headphones. I total about 10ft of cable. Getting ready to buy an Axon Tazer camera. I also have a router and a laptop in the back. I am known to fill up 3 baskets going through security.

And I didn't say anything about the 4 cameras that will be mounted on the front and back and sides that will record in loop while driving.

Don't ask
Sad

Wow. Did not realize Texas was so cold.
Recommend you put these into your album here on the board also.
This way the pictures are local to the board.

Nice DIY LN! What kind of bag was that? Some kind of insulated bag...or a ladies hand bag...or what?

If you were making it again would you still use 6 inch "L" bracket, or something larger? Would you have it extend further up your arms, or maybe wider on the bars?

Why the night vision camera on your helmet? Why not more " permanently" mounted on the scoot?  Seems to me that if the camera is small enough for a helmet mount that it could also find a place on a Ram mount cluster bar?

I think this bag came with a rifle. Dont remember which one. Any longer bag will do. Do a test with an old sheet or table cloth before cutting the bag.

You will need washer. Bag goes outside the handlebar weights follow by washer.

Dont go nuts tihgting it up. Adjust slowly if it moves. That screw cant handle much torque.

Right side accelerator has 2 small plastic washer. Dont loose them or your acceleration will kindve lock in place

Insulated but not necesarely needed. The secret is
making sure there are no holes. Water and cold air will cancel it's purpose. Best used when raining. You can use you regular thin gloves. Next bag will be a little blonger maybe bigger so I can cover all the way down the handlebars.

I first used no bracket. It kind of worked except by the end of the that it slowly start pushing on my brake. You dont even needed it that long. Enough to cover the outside brake handle.

Black gloves and summer is the reason you dont want this year round. Air need in summer or your hands will cook ....in texas that is.

You can not mount a camera anywhere on any bike body. The rpm with road grooves will interfere with the refreshing rate aka 60hz of both the camera and monitor. The monitor is temporarily mounted on the handlebars but will move them above cluster soon. Its a little calmer there compare with handlebar.

That flir camera is a bitch cause its a heavy and is L shaped and you have to diy cable and adaptors to mount.

Moving my head around saves me from buying a motorized pan and tilt mount.

Yes you can drive with it with no lights. Kindof the equivalent of backup camera. You will not use it to drive backwords but to spot stuff.
