OCF Rider Health check

Hey Fellas,

This is Mrs. OCF Rider (Sue)...

We just got home about 1/2 hour ago from the hospital.

Chris's Stats = 2 broken ribs, broken collar bone, broken scapula, and majorly bruised groin muscle, swollen right thumb, but most of all feeling very dumb about the whole event...

He's worn out -- the trip from the car into the house was pretty painful (that groin muscle)....

But knowing Chris I'm sure he will be providing his own status report tomorrow as soon as gets some sleep.

Thanks to you all - I really hope Orion is doing OK... Please let us know how he is doing (Walter - if you have his phone number we'd appreciate getting it so we can check on his status personally)...

Be safe guys!!

I'm glad Chris is back home--he really scared me. Hope Orion does ok with his arm.

Got some video here. Didn't spend a lot of time editing it, so it may be boring. No one complained last time about the file size or quality level, so will do the same again. Each file is about 5-6 minutes of video and about 25mb in size. It may help to store them locally and then view them.

We start with some dusty roads -

Movie A

Then we hit a dead end, a broken chain and some mud -

Movie B

A smooth powerline and a scenic donut break -

Movie C

Some RR tracks and a little air -

Movie D

Then we finished up with a little stroll down the walking path -

Movie E

The real problem is that Walter's still riding a bike around with a drum brake! Crazy!

Chris, Jolly, Orion, hope you fellas are feeling better. I was very upset to hear about all your bad luck.

later, barry

camera setup

Craig

What kind of setup are you using for video(mini dv,lanc remote,camera resolution,mic placement)? Im looking in to setting up my own system and yours works very well.

Thanks Greg

Thanks everyone for your thougts. I am slowly healing thankfully I have the pics you posted to keep me entertained while I am stuck in the hospital, damn blackberry won't let me watch the video though.
Sounds like the other guy suffered simuler injuries. So far I pretty much shattered my shoulder, broke 4 ribs and a thumb. I guess it could be worse even though this def. Sucks! I wish everyone a speedy recovery and many more safe trips! I hope to make it to another ride with you guys in 2-3 months.

Greg, I sent you a PM to answer yours, but I may as well repeat it here, for everyone:

I have an older Sony TRV-xx mini-dv camcorder in a pelican brand plastic box in my backpack. I run a lanc cable out the backpack and down my right arm (thru my jacket sleeve right now-I don't know how I'll do it when I don't wear the jacket in the summer). I secure it to the outside of the jacket on my right wrist so I can see the indicator light. The bullet camera on the side of my helmet is a cheap model off the internet a couple of years ago-I don't know the resolution-may be 380 tv lines. The microphone is sticking out a hole on the backpack, facing backwards. I wrapped it in some foam to cut wind noise. It sounded on the videos like it may have worked a little loose, because I heard a rubbing sound.

I had to do a lot of cable splicing to make this work. On my first attempts, the standard connectors would come loose during the ride and I would lose the picture signal, so I added BNC connectors. It's a pain though to get in and out of my helmet.

I just got a cheap $89 wireless setup off the net and am going to experiment with that this week. Hopefully it will remove some of the mess of wires around my neck area. I'll let you know how it works.

Excellent Ride/Video

Looks like I missed an awesome time. Although, the videos made me feel as though I was there. Great job.

Best wishes to Jolly705, OCF Rider & Orion for a fast recovery.

Hope to join you guys on the next outing.

Wayne

Get Well

Just got back from Daytona. Had a great time as always. Looks like you guys put together a good ride.
I hope all are feeling better after the unfortunate happenings at the beginning and end of the ride. Chris get well, and if you need anything give me a call at Honda/Suzuki. And yes I did have a Husaberg with a nickel plated frame. I needed something newer, lighter, and with that starter button.(Husky TE250). Husaberg was a great bike.
