One disadvantage of riding a sports motorcycle is that there's very little room to place gadgets like GPS, smartphone, GoPro etc. There's no handlebar like what you'd find on a traditional motorcycle onto which you can bolt devices.

Rocket Rail is planning to change that. Rocket Rail Open Rocket Rail link in a new window is a Kickstarter project, in other words, they are trying to raise the funds to "kickstart" the project. The "inventor" rides a Honda CBR250R and needed space to place phone and GPS.

Rocket Rail

You can place the proposed Rocket Rail on the bike's fork bolts. No modifications are required to your bike, just use the bolts that are there.

The Rocket Rail itself has a "ball" which can accommodate gadgets like a GPS (like Garmin which uses the ball to attach their GPS). But since it's a long and flat surface, you can mount other devices to it, like your phone or camera. Special mounts will be available.

It's an interesting concept, and the Rocket Rail should be selling for US$60-80, but that's initially for the Honda CBR250R.

The problem with this Kickstarter project is that the target has been set way too high. It kicks in if US$150,000 has been reach, which will never be the case. They are planning on making this gadget bar/rail for different sports motorcycles so maybe a) they can make the target more realistic or b) contact the owner and get him to make one specially for your bike.

Crowd-funding project or not, it's an interesting concept.
