Speed trap EVERY DAY. As far as pics I took a few with my cell phone
but what I want is the helmet cam that takes pictures while you drive.
Anyone know of a good deal on one?
Picked mine up leaving Eugene after a gas stop. Didn't hear or see him so he had to pull up next to me to tell me to pull over. They usually don't take kindly to having to do that. :(

I got a Go-Pro - simply amazing. Stick a 8Gb SD card in it - pic ever 10 secs, and leave it. Go for a run... you'll have about 3Gb of pics.... take the ones you want.... delete the rest.

It comes with lots of sticker pads, so finding a place on your bike/lid should not be a problem.

The heat on the PC can be a blessing when its cold. Open your legs just a bit and the hot air goes all the way up. Great on a cold day. When its hot, holy shite. On the way up I stopped at Lowes and picked up some Velcro, metal tape and an "Open House" sign with the arrow. Plastic cardboard about 7x 24". Cut squares about 7x7 and Velcro'd them on where the heat comes out the side, essentially extending the duct past my legs. WORKED GREAT.
Cant believe I never thought of it before, something all PC owners should know when its 105 degrees for 250 miles... Now my ass is wincing
and I smell shin hair. Granted around town it's a little butt jived but it works. I'm leaving the Velcro on and the squares in the trunk for when its smoking hot just stick them on. Also I noticed about every 12-15 minutes the fan would come on and thats when the blast would hit. So maybe another switch that turns it on sooner to cool continuously, or let it get hotter and turn on every 25 minutes. The bike hardly ever gets to 1/2 way on the gauge unless you are stopped.
Thanks for the cam suggestions. And I wont go on a long trip without Velcro, duct tape and knife.

My wife and I did 700 (well it was 698 I think to be honest) in the Swiss Alps a couple months ago. I guess we're strange as it wasn't too big of a deal (at least to me, ask msbianca what her real thoughts were).

We hit traffic, did 5 passes, and rode home in the dark and pouring rain.

We moved from Los Gatos and there a million good roads right in that area worth doing as they are the best roads (due to the number of them and how many miles of non populated twisties you can put together) I've ever ridden. And that includes the worthless riding in Europe and even the Alps.

You're a better man than me.
