So after I got a new helmet, I didn't feel like mounting the original mount system for my contour roam camera onto it. Because it was so big and made the camera stick out so far. I modified the mount and epoxied it to my helmet, and it was on there solid. Until I got up to about 96mph. Here's the video of the first test ride with it, and it subsequently flying off my helmet. Enjoy


SO.. As a result of this absolute failure, I looked at different options and found JBWELD Plasti-Weld putty. It says it's not good for "structural purposes", but I took a good gob of it and made a sort of base connected to my helmet and the camera mount, and let it cure overnight. And it feels SOLID. Much more solid than the epoxy I used, which was heavy duty shit. I'm mounting and running the mic cable right now, and I took off the stupid foam piece around my mic. So that annoying noise won't be there anymore hopefully.

Here's a video after the re-mount and mic fix.


Pictures of the helmet mount below. I will be matching the color. Helmet I'm using is a 707 Vendetta.

Bike is looking sexy Shitty Bill! When are you replacing those pumpkins though? :D
Just replaced the rears last night with the tail tidy kit. Decided not to go with the integrated tail light because of SOCAL laws. I have some R6 flush mounts in the mail right now to replace the two front indicators. After that, it's pretty much only mirrors and wind screen and she'll be where I want her. I do have a friend who owns a detailing company who said he'll do a custom wrap for my bike for $300. I'm thinking of getting a color/pattern that matches the black plastics on my bike, for an all black look. That, with my LED lights, oh man she'd be HOT.

Sorry for the long ass reply time by the way, changed jobs and it's been a busy month.
