Discovered the worse invention ever...

for motorcycling. It's the video camera.
Son-in-law and I were feeling particularly cocky this weekend, so I mounted my GoPro video camera on the front of my FZ1, and chased him around the mountains on his FZ6. We blew past everything on the road. Dam, we are good. I'm thinking that we'll both be invited to the MotoGP all-star race.
Got home, down loaded the video, and sat back to gloat.
We SUCK!!! If you've never watched yourself on video, while motorcycling anyway, DON'T. It's really discouraging.
In fact the only encouragement I got was a deputy sheriff waving frantically at us when we went past him the other way. Damned if he wasn't the friendliest cop I've ever come across. Just can't understand why he was waving in a frantic downward motion.

I did the same thing and when I actually sat down to view the video I realized why Ducati hasn't been calling me up to replace Rossi.

Re: Discovered the worse invention ever...

But you never know when a " hey yall watch this" moment comes up.. If the camera is spooled up... Why not use it?

Don't be afraid to say what you feel, as those that matter DOnt mind and those that mind Dont matter.

Re: Discovered the worse invention ever...

So many times, I wished I had a camera while riding in our local urban traffic. It is amazing what some drivers will do. I would have enough evidence to convict them of numerous felonies, all the way up to attempted murder.
