Hello all ! Any ideas on how I can carry a camera tripod on my 650 alp, I was looking for a top box to use for said purpose but I think Ive decided on the SW Motech Trax38 alloy box which, as it happens isn`t big enough to carry the tripod. Also while I`m here has anybody tried the aforementioned Trax (anygood ?). Cheers for any replies.

Couple of straps should do the job or these light duty ratchet type strap's. :thumbleft:

I think my tripod actually fits in the pannier.

I don't have a tripod, should I feel inadequate?

I carried a folding baby's bed on the tralp a while back so I can't see a tripod being a problem...:thumbup:

What are the tripod dimensions? ie if you were to fit a tube on the bike what size would it need to be for bore size and length?



















ps would like to add as no one has done yet.








I am a tripod!










well the wife wished I was anyway and I am in my own mind so there!

Why not a monopod and a couple of straps - strap to almost anywhere and when you need a self standing support strap it to a fence or a post or the bike

look out for the tripod from LIDL
it come on offer (around £6) every so often.
it extends to about 1m and when condenced is about 160mm
it has standard thread and can take an SLR weight but not with large lens.
I have had mine nearly 2 years and it gets well hammered.

Collapsed would be my first choice :)

Or ? open with a bicycle cape, to keep it dry :)

Or...with a wheel on the camera end and the feet clipped to your frame, doubling as a sidecar too ? :)

Endless possibility's although I haven't tested these three options, so I don't really have a le ....... tripod to stand on :D:D

my mate uses his bike. he has a RAM ball on his handlebars on his burgmann 650, to which he directly mounts his tilty panny thing off a tripod (head?) when he stops.
