Default The old girl still sounds well

Hi
I was testing out my camera holder but noticed it has a bit to much bounce in it.
Also you will notice in the video that the camera is over exposured , i have put this down to the fact that the black screen is in front of the camera and i need to turn the exposure down to compensate for this.
The camera iím using takes good video but on the down side it does not have a screen

But i have now found a better mount thats will hold it a little higher, i've not tried it as yet though lol.

Perhaps your suspension is a bit soft? The closer you put it to the forks the more bounce you will see. That bounce is going to dissipate a bit more the higher the camera is, in theory. If you mounted on helmet like a lot of vloggers then you will get less bounce I would imagine.

To be fair the mount does have too much moment in it, especially near the top, i have since got a better one and will test it tomorrow maybe if i have time

I will put it on my helmet if i have too but i want it on the bike really

Hey Dave good to see you and the bike again. How did she fair over the end of last year - did you still ride her? I took mine off my drive in november cuz the weather started eating my exhaust lol. It could do with a chain and new tyres minimum for the coming season.
