Some of these old farts can be dangerous.

Just so happened I was uploading that clip and posted it before going to bed. More to come but the internet connection here sucks.
I sent my old cam in for exchange. I contacted them not expecting anything but I ordered a battery anyway. I told them of the issues I'd been having and they told me to send them the cam body and they'll send me a new one. I bought it last September. :woohoo: It's waiting for my in my mailbox. Another seller for my Good Guys thread. Can't beat the price and their CS is awesome. I don't use that term much. They'll get a 5 * and good review.

One of our long time community council, CSA, COP members and friend hasn't been home for two years. I decided to take some clips of his place and send them to him. He had a huge wooden sculpture of himself in front that was stolen along with other things. Got a little more than I expected but maybe now they will know someone's watching the place.

There's always some guy that tries to keep you behind him. Double yellow, he slows down, oncoming traffic, he slows down, Passing area or it's clear, he speeds up. Sometimes you have to out fox him. He didn't expect me to do this but if I hadn't, he would have hugged the double yellow for the next two miles. He had his family in the car and they were enjoying the fun. Jerks. :dry:

:ohmy: Great vids !

I have two mounts, one forward, and one rearward for getting the tailgaters. Windows used to have a really simple, easy, free editor for splicing the footage together called Moviemaker. I don't know if the latest windows version still has it. You seem to have something similar. Windows? or Mac?

I use the super-cheap cameras that look like little flashlights. I have them hard-mounted so the sound is mostly mechanical engine noise. The rear camera does pick up more exhaust sound, which is what I use for the audio. I usually just ignore the front camera's sound. The editor lets you separate the audio and splice that as well.

Here's one I did a few years ago. At about 2:30 you can get a little bit of decent exhaust sound. When you let off the throttle, though, it's all wind noise. I've thought about getting a separate audio recorder, but that's getting a little much.

Cool. B) Love those RD's. They were like bees in the tight twisties in Malibu CYN back in the day. Open road it's SEE YA. :woohoo: I'm going to get a cheap one like I had at first. $20 and mount it under my top box. I had it so it would turn on when the bike did. A loop system and G sensor. Vibration killed it. Has a card that can go into my bike lap top. Using movie maker and also have VLC media player I haven't tried yet. Your bike sounds great and it looked like your partner did a brodie in that last turn. I'd like to see more. ;)

Yeah, he had the front wheel in the air, but wasn't quite in the right place to show up on camera. That bike was a great example too. The crankcase seals were still rock solid and the cylinders had really good compression.

There was one on CL close to me for $3500. Low mile and stock except low bars. If I could, I would have bought it. It was red with pin stripes and all. Brought back fond memories. B)

I wish I still had my 79 400F. Great little bike with the right power, frame stiffness and suspension. I learned a lot about riding fast in the twisties with that thing! Typical noisy 2 stroke but I didn't care... LOL, I had my KZ1000, a CX500, a Honda 200cc Rebel kinda thing and a KZ900LTD all at the same time back then.
