just quickly fabbed up a suction gopro mount using one of the ram mount style gps suction cups i had laying around.

cost? free. may be a bit bulkier than genuine gopro suction mount, but thats $59.99 lol

pretty much took the flat sticky mount, stuck it on to the female ram base, and it clicks right into the male ram suction mount. the GPS it was made for is 169g, the gopro with waterproof case and 1 hinge is 154g so there shouldn't be any more of a risk of it flying off.

From my experience with the same DIY mount, the extra vibrations experienced on the bike would move/turn the camera as I was riding.

I've made a mount like that as well and while the camera stayed put there was a lot of blurring in the video from the play allowed by the ball socket.

Does anyone know if there's a shortened version of the ICBC "Learn to Ride" book that just has the motorbike-specific bits?

^ Yeah, just flip through it and read the relevant chapters. The whole book takes like 30 minutes at most.

Been doing that but they keep throwing in random junk that is either common with driving a car, or has nothing to do with a bike. I keep coming across things about cyclists for some stupid reason.

Is the learn to red book the one you get before you take the theory test? Just read it all dude. Odds are you will learn something simple about road rules that you maybe took fr granted or forgot. Might be on the test. It's not all motorcycle only. It's all road rules

Fair point, it's still a bit annoying to read through piles of things you already know from driving a car though.

If you really don't want to read the book, try taking the online practice test and see how you do. Just a warning though, the real test is a little more tricky, but you can still blow through it using common sense.

the online practice test is not specific to class 6. its just the same as class 5. common sense on the test isn't very common. they shorten sentances so you have to pick the one thats "least wrong". also on one of the questions, the illustration is incorrect (genuinely) and the answer they says is correct is wrong.


either way. this is the longest week of my life. can't wait to get itttttttttttttt. (spoilered for shitty pics off of the CL ad)

Spoiler!

It's critical that the industry generate attention and exposure right now - and if this is how they do then we all benefit. None of us might need or want a 200-hp, superbike, but the technology and innovation within them will trickle down into their 600cc and 300cc bikes in short order.

I strongly believe that after an extended period of stagnation (triggered by the 2008 global economic crisis) the sportbike industry in particular needs this explosion of innovation in whatever form it takes to drive exposure and interest from a broader audience.

We all benefit.
This next few years will be interesting in the bike market with a few manufacturers hitting or going past the 100 year mark, or 50+ years in racing.

Is the actual test specific to Class 6? Also unless I misunderstood the book, if you're ready for both your Class 5 and 6 road tests at the same time, you only have to take 1 to get both licenses? But if I already have a Class 5 I have to do this test for 6?

The knowledge test to get your Car L is one test, and the knowledge test to get your motorcycle L is another test. Both share similar questions like what laws are and identifying road signs. But then after that it is license specific. Ie: lane positioning and passenger care for a motorcycle WONT be seen on your CAR knowledge test.

If you are talking about road tests then I am not sure. Just because you pass your motorcycle road test in no way demonstrates that you are able to safely operate a car. So I don't see how in any way you can "take one test and pass for both licenses"


Edit: all I was saying is that on the internet, icbc provides practice knowledge tests. But they are for cars, and have no specific questions pertaining to motorcycles. So just taking the online test over and Over only covers 50% of the curriculum
