    My Daily Commute

    Just got a gopro hd motor sport edition.

    Trying out the suction mounting, attached to lower fairing.

    Nothing too exciting, will post some different angles/camera positions.

    Enjoy.

    at 6:50 : for the idiot in the car. I bet your blood was boiling from anger at that moment.

    Nice video. I don't know why, but I love to watch the front springs do there jobs. It also gives a nice view on the physics of the bike. Accelerating and braking and stuff.

    The best part was when you went by the cars.

    Better make sure nobody's home then, because this will be like pornography for you haha. Or at worst the beach-running scenes from Baywatch.

    Another treat for ya, this one's a little bit more.....provocative.

    YouTube - slow

    It is crazy how much that suspension flexes on what looks like a flat even road.

    These slow motion movies are a great way to understand the forces that Newton puts ont the parts of the bike. Tires, suspention, driver, and I thought I even saw the front fender wobble around for a bit at 1:15

    To put it in the words of Yoda: Great drivers.....they are

    Re: My Daily Commute

    No kidding. A lot of times people just randomly wipe out and think "God, there must have been an oil slick. I didn't know there was a BP well nearby!"

    When in actuality it was a sudden loss of traction due to bad inputs during a time your suspension or tires were doing something wonky.

    There is a reason a well built and adjusted suspension is considered critical to better/quicker cornering. One universal stock suspension setting would only work if all riders were universal and stock and all riding conditions were universal and stock.

    I tried my neighbors HD and loved it. I want one! Your crossplane sounds awesome. That tall gearing is something else! It's outta the hole quick when you need it.
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!
