Recording Video..

So I want to record some video at RA.

I picked up a free camera, just wondering how do I go about mounting this?

I was thinking I could put it on the tail!









?

Shame that you need insurance to buy a new license plate sticker

when are you bringing your bike over so i can patch the tail?

then you can duct tape it with spacers underneath it to make sure it's pointing the right angle. (or according to papa wink, it's not worth it.)

Pointing the right angle?

I don't think im going to even fix it, just going to put my number plate over the hole. Or Ill just fix it myself this weekend. You guys live too far. By the time I get there I can most likely have finished it at home

3 easy steps
1. buy yourself a camera mount
2. take that mount to the guys who beefed up the reciever on the Hix RV and heavy dutify said camera mount
3. mount it all up with some grade 8 hardware

It would be kind of funny to have that as a back-mounted camera with a "tear-off" option, for the CCS races.

So make me faster.

I'm thinking we take a leap of faith, and attach a 7ft piece of rope to our bikes Wink.

That way you cant pull on the straight, and I have to follow you into every corner just as fast.

I'd either ratchet strap it to the tank, or I'd consider a trailer like Goldwings use. That way it would be like a chase cam.

You made a great exhaust bracket. I'm sure you'll figure something out.

Geeezzz. I pay you a compliment and you become hostile?

I have a camera thats about 1/2 the size of that one but still 5 times larger than current cameras. We can try that one as well if you want.
