    Shoulder mounting a Drift HD170?

    I'd really like a chest mount but I just don't think its feasible. I normally mount it to the handlebars, but I get so much frame noise and its just kinda blah after a little while. So my thought is to mount it on my shoulder somehow. The two thoughts I had were sewing the mount onto the shoulder of a shirt, or to make some sort of strap and use the goggle mount.

    Just kinda brainstorming here, anyone done something like this?

    I tried that with a contour (kind of the same form factor) mounting it on the shoulder of a backpack and it doesn't work very well. It's shaky.

    if you search there's actually a Drift chest mount available now.

    Hmmm, I'll search again but I didn't find one earlier.

    Thanks for the feed back!
