      Daniel - Oh no, I won't forget about the GSXers. Will be later this summer though.

      Hi Kevin

      I purposely made the goal that high to insure that I would have funding to design for every bike requested. I took the chance that there might be 2,500 sport bike riders worldwide that would pledge. Does not seem to be the case, at least for those that look at Kickstarter. You assume incorrectly that Kickstarter is the only way to get a product to market. Fret not. I have an established manufacturing firm of running for over 16 years, the patent is filed, and this will be developed the old fashioned way. You'll see the CBR250R on within a month and a CBR600R version following in about 2 months. The Ninja version will be next on deck. Kickstarter funding would have been nice to go all in right away, but there is more than one way to skin this cat.

      Stay tuned.

      Great idea! I'd love to see this on my bike. Sadly, however, it will never see the light of day. James, if you had a target of something achievable, you'd have made more than $465. When people see a target of $150k for a $40 item that few people are looking for, people don't even pledge. What's the point, right? I'm new to actually pledging but if your target was $1500 you'd have a chance. To make a minimum order for maybe 1 bike and a feel for whether the market wants your product.

      I'm not trying to be an arse, I'm just being realistic. If I invented a shaft drive for the 250 ninja and my target was $1million, who would pledge?

      Daniel - Thanks for the pledge! In the video I had the iPhone mounted so that it could be used as a GPS, if you're meaning that you want to have your phone take the video through the wind screen, then ROKFORM makes a tripod mount that could easily be adapted to be used on the ROCKET-RAIL, either by mounting a screw on one part of the rail or using the existing GPS mount hole to attach the tripod mount. You may need to play with getting the angle just so however.

      Do you have possible recommendations for the phone mountings?
      I think you didn't record the videos with a phone right?`

      Hope it gets founded ;)

      Daniel - You are correct, the shipping overseas should have been $15 from the beginning, the error was missed during the final scrub of the project. I have corrected it and you may now pledge with the correct shipping charge. The old pledge with $50 international shipping is marked "sold out" and an identical one with $15 international shipping has been added. Thank you for your input.

      I love the idea. I have Suzuki GSX-R 600 K7 and it's not easy to fit something for a trip on it. Specially if you try to put your expensive smartphone u want to be sure u don't drop it ;)
      But seriously 50 bucks for shipping outside US?
      I'd be in immediately... but not with this shipping costs sorry. Because on top of the overall price (with shipping) u have to pay VAT in Europe + eventually duty fees...

      So if there is any change I will be onboard...
