Keep chippin' away at it, McS.

Lookin' forward to seeing the end-result.

Hah! Lance Armstrong got nuttin' on you, Sir Rado.



I just got done with a short ride with a buddy of mine (he has a Wife and kids so he doesn't have the leniency insofar as time).
We did about 120 miles (along the Russian River, then down the Coast to Point Reyes (Inverness area), then hit the back roads around Petaluma for some triple-digit speed runs... heh... 60mph seems like a snails pace after screaming along at 120-130.

I really need to do a track day next year as this machine is begging to be allowed to run wild.

Also, I did find a nice self-contained USB interface motorcycle video camera, but it costs 299 bucks... Hmmm... just seems a lot, but perhaps I will surrender to the desire.

I'll bet you could rig something up for a lot less than that.

Especially since he's probably not handy with tools

I have to make time to get the shifting on my ride adjusted as it's starting to get a bit out of alignment and the chain sometimes comes of the top end of the chainrings; if I had a proper workstand I might try doing the tuning myself.

Here is the unit in question.

I like that unit as that is all that one needs to take with them.

I did find some nice cameras on ebay for a fraction of the price, but they require a camcorder or similar device to capture the image stream.

I like to travel light, and although I do have a camelback that has pockets for some of the things that I feel are a necessity, there isn't much space for much else.

Also, I don't want wiring of any type, as danglies introduce a hazard... that limits my choices.

But... if you (or anyone) has any ideas please feel free to shout 'em out.
