Yeah, my fault for not spending an hour twiddling the position up and down and checking it... I just fastened it on and went for the ride. Heh, it looked good before I put the helmet on. I'll play with it some more, start experimenting to try and get the angle right. That vid was shot at the 640x480 setting, I'll try the 'HD' 1280x720 soon.

Oh yeah, and I realised after the ride that I must have brushed my choke lever, it was only open half way (or half closed, I s'pose) for that run.

I should note that when I tried it on the handlebars I got that electronic interference that comes from the mag/CDI, making the screen ripple and do wierd things in response to the throttle. Anyone have ideas for reducing that?


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
