    • Paul better to catch the boat late, then to miss it altogether!

      I picked up an articulating arm in Germany back in the 90s.

      Likewise, I had never seen one until this Japanese photographer pulled one out of he 100+L photog backpack. I had to ask what the thing was...of course we were unable to communicate due to the language barrier. But, I took a shot of his "magic arm" and went off in search of one. They are great gadgets to have in the bag.

      You're only limited by your imagination where to affix the arm for your next shot!

    • I also have a 1/4-20 1" RAM ball I can attach to the camera body, then use a RAM arm and attach it to a ball screwed into the mirror arm socket on the clutch/F brake lever brackets. Turns my KTM into a tripod.

      Likewise, I've been using Paul's (HDB) mirrors for years. I use Al Jesse's (Moto Manufacturing) Moto Docks (machined ball) screwed into the bracket sockets just for camera use.

    • RAM setup isn't as flexible as the magic arm as depicted on your 500. I haven't carried my magic arms on the moto. Might be something I have to consider.

    • The one i have is small, 11 inches extended, the clamp has two threaded holes, 1/4 and 3/8, but a Ram ball might add a little extra to the mix.

      Motorcycles make good tripods
