Riding With Twinsen Episode 2: Raleigh Le Grange

Ladies and gentlemen. Episode 2 is now available. This is one of our local twisties courses. I believe it's 15-20 miles. Which translates to about 15 minutes of twists. We got extremely lucky and my camera didn't cut out on me the first run and I got to complete the run. But as soon as I came to the end (slowing down to enter a gas station) the camera's memory was full. So no "after twisties banter" between my friend and I.

My friend Moses (had his ZX6R stolen a week after mine) was with me on this run riding one of our friend's '03 GSX-R 1000 (D&D Slip-On and K&N Intake). You don't get to see him that often, but he's not TOO far behind me. This was my 3rd time down Raleigh La Grange. I've done it once on each bike. I don't know why, but I think I enjoyed it more on the ZX9 than I did on the GSX-R 1000. *shrug*

I tried to take video of my friend riding on our way back up, but my camera's battery decided to die before we even left. So I held it in my helmet feeling excruciating pain for absolutely no reason. But I guess that's a lesson learned for future filming. Carry...extra...batteries. :D But anyway...there's not quite as much commentary in this one, but it should be enough. Enjoy! I know I did!

Sigh, I save it then open in Media Player. I can only hear stuff and not see anything, sigh.

That's cool. I wouldn't mind having a tank cam, but all you would see is straight roads around here!

Having problems with the gear changes or what? Sounded like a lot of missed shifts and/or false neutrals. My old Kawi used to be a bitch to find neutral, but it shifted well through the gears.

Yeah, I don't know what the problem is. The shifter refuses to go into gear a lot of times. And sometimes when it does go into gear, there's a delay before it actually engages and grabs. Don't know what's up with that.

dude what kind of set up you using? anyway make a tank mount I think that would get you way better footage than what your useing. also if that is a bullit cam try mounting it in diffrent places. I would like to get one to mount looking behind me at times or down on the forks. I like the ideal you can talk into yours.
I made one simmlar to this one http://www.r6messagenet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14993
I think his looks a little better than mine.

Nice setup. But that doesn't get in the way when you try to tuck? And for those interested, this is the camera I use.

The major problem with mounting on your helmet is you do not get the feeling of lean that a bike mount camera does. Here is a different perspective from a bullet cam mounted under the front fairing. The first and forth vids are the best.
