The results are a little disappointing as the position of the camera doesn't show the actual needle view that the rider of the motorcycle gets. It also shows that either the camera mount or the instruments are not perfectly in line with the headstock.


Use picture in picture - albeit two cameras needed and loads more editing time!


Have you watched it? :roll:


Nope. 19 minutes is a long time to re-learn twisting the righthand bar end :) I took the view from reading your post that you had a single camera attempting to show both. If you're telling me that you deliberately aimed a camera to not record the clocks properly and then spent time editing and posting it, have your :roll: right back :lol:
My own views. For better or worse :)

Ha ha :)

You'd have seen it sort of worked in the first couple of minutes.

YouTube description ... This demo ride was filmed by a colleague as part of our preparation to take the IAM Roadsmart Masters test. I've uploaded the full version, warts and all, so any of my future IAM Associates can watch it. A real IAM test would include some dual carriageway as well. I didn't know the route beforehand and my direction was controlled by the following bike's indicators. Disappointingly, the bright sun and white helmet do mask my head movement a little but when the camera bike is closer you can see me checking mirrors, clearing blind spots etc. when required. The comments were recorded live and I couldn't hear them as I was riding.

What was the kerfuffle with signalling at 19:20?
What happened at 28:36 - bit of an edit?

I can understand your chum took different lines to capture the moving images, but some of his positioning with oncoming looked a tad......bold?

Apart from that, looks easy! :mrgreen:

The age old, should I, shouldn't I signal? He didn't see oncoming car from his position. I saw it as further forward, but debatable if my signal really was of any use to him.

Join in video files. My same make/model of camera gives seamless transitions when it changes recording file. His leaves out a couple of seconds. Maybe different firmware. Nothing under hand removed. It was warts and all straight from the camera except me muting one or two personal comments. Didn't mention it the video but a few seconds earlier a left cross view over the burnt field gives an excellent early view of that junction.

Camera is mounted on right hand mirror stalk. Also a wide angle lenses. Looks a lot worse/bolder than real life.
