Nice ride! - Lake Berryessa run

View Larger Map

It was a nice ride! Many turns around the route still really wet especially the road that cover under shade - but most of the road were dry. And... I am slow - there I said it =/ Man, I was just keep eating the dust of the BMW 1000RR and 749. But still - glad to be out with my Classic... it was probably the best winter ride!

Will post video soon! Stay tune...

Contour camera mounting options

Contour camera mounting option, originally uploaded by Speedy Chung.
I have received a lot of questions recently regarding the Contour camera mounting options and locations, and what kind of hardware I use. Instead of answer it one by one, I think it should be a stand-alone post so it's easier for future reference...

The Sport 1000 has tons of possible mount locations. I could of just mount it directly on the trellis frame; but I really don't want to risk damaging the frame. That's why I picked these two locations: over handle bar and on the frame slider post. I use the standard RAM Zinc Coated U-Bolt Base w/1" Ball. It came with 2 U-shaped bracket, and I just pick whatever fit best. I also use the half round plastic filler piece (included) to increase traction, As you can see, the mounting locations that I picked were pretty un-noticable until I put on the mounting arm and camera. BTW, the mount on the handle bar is actually mounted on the master cylinder - basically I'm running out of room on the clip-ons. Also, I mounted them on the left side (facing front) only for easier control on-the-fly. So far both locations work really well!

If you STILL have question, just send me a e-mail ; )
