A u-bolt, a disassembled Droid car mount, a little southern engineering and viola! The Droid cycle cam is born.
I mounted my trusty phone on the handle bar of the Triumph Rocket III and here’s the first test run. I think it turned out really well, although the audio doesn’t do justice to the growling triple.
As fate would have it, about one tenth of a mile into this test ride the law made an appearance. He wasn’t after me, but it sure made an impact on my plans for the test ride…especially on the way back, as I knew he was probably still going to be in the vicinity… since he’s one of my neighbors.
Anyway, here’s the clip.
I think this will work great for capturing some of the excitement next time I ride Talemina, even though Youtube’s compression routines really lower the quality of the original.
