That was fun. Normally I find 'ride' videos boring as hell. Road, road, turn, road. Zzzzzz

But knowing you were hitting it one-handed and watching the road through a 2-1/2" screen (at least part of the time) made it exciting. Nothing like waiting for a guy to lose it!

BTW, you blew two stop signs.:D

I can't watch it at work, but MUD... come on bud. You know some of the best things in life aren't legal!

That sure is interesting...

Chop... you need to talk to mud. Get setup with a decent vid system. I think it would really help in selling more of those cool bikes.

You could run a gopro standard def or high def with a suction cup mount wherever you wanted and not f'ck the bike up..

I think you should run two. One on the bike showing the road, and the other one pointing at the front primary pulley. I'll want to see it when a pant leg gets caught in that thing.....

2 is always better than 1.. if i had more money than brains, wait i think i do have $11 in my pocket so maybe that is a poor analogy at this juncture, i would run 5 or 6 cameras all at different angles..

Holeeee shit. That is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. But after Rodney King it was only a matter of time.

Yeah... I rolled two stop signs. Guess I do it every day. I left from right in front of my house, rolled out to the one big road in Sparta and got it up to about 60mph for the clutch guys to help me tune the clutch weights and springs.

Next video is with my GoPro Hero... this was just playing around seeing if my camera had the capability. The mic. is in the front so the wind noise sucks bad. It sounds much better in person too! The GoPro should be much better.

The gopro addresses the wind noise issue..
