Re: A few more videos

Horse, currently the camera is mounted on the side of my helmet at chin bar height. It can't go any higher due to the visor mechanism (the Schubert has no side plates to reduce wind noise) and it can't go on top (like a Teletubby :) ) due to it being a flip helmet.

Re: A few more videos

Looks easy! ;) Bit distracting with that plastic screen thingy distorting the view. Nice straight-lining bit - the RoADAR FB examiners haven't seen it yet! My eyes are 4-5 inches higher than the camera so see over the screen. What I may do in the next video I record (I already have another one I'm ...

Re: A few more videos

Filmed this morning. A demo ride / vlog on a sunny Sunday morning in Suffolk, taking in the forest of Rendlesham, on a journey from Melton to Orford. This is a straight copy from the camera, with no editing apart from the intro/outro. I lowered the camera one more notch for this ride, but I think it...

Re: Phone use (again )

Phone conversations, hands free or not, pale in to insignificance compared to the numbers texting and interacting via onscreen keyboards (phone, tablet, manufacturer built in) with social media. Ride a motorcycle and you can see just how widespread this is. Hiding it in their lap does little to hide...

Re: Tyres fitted to front or rear

I was always a best on the front man until a long discussion on the old IAM Forum and some online reading. Now I get the newest put on the rear ... even if I have to argue the case with a dealer. Have had similar 'discussions' with my dealer when they rotated and muddled the tyres up despite advice ...

Re: Latest bit of idiocy

It can see parked cars as there's plenty of footage showing it unable to deal with on street parking of the uk. Sometimes queuing behind the parked vehicle.

Re: A few more videos

I've uploaded the 3rd and final video to my series on roundabouts. There's a playlist on my channel that will play all three of them in order.

Re: Block Changes - How Many Do You Miss?

So take an early, nicely rev matched, gear change as you join the slip. How is this not systematic? It's a change of circumstances/traffic levels/flowing speed and is often going to be down hill. You'd down change for a hill. I can't believe you've never seen my views on the order of the 4 (or 5) '...

Re: Block Changes - How Many Do You Miss?

Only just seen this topic. When its title appeared I thought it was going to be about missed opportunities. ;) Anyway, the coming off a dual c/w or motorway onto a long slip road often comes up. Yes, even on motorbikes. Drivers and riders often want to stay systematic but complain their vehicle won'...
