You can download a free GoPro app to an I-phone or I-pod(which is what I have) that makes the I-pod/phone act as a remote using the WiFi.
With the app I can operate the I-pod like a remote and even preview what I'm going to record(with a 3 second delay) but you can't watch while its recording. Its great for adjusting the camera where you want it to record...eg: up the road/etc. and not at the sky/ground.

Talking

Lisa and I left Saturday after lunch for a five-state run around the area. 650 miles, under 50 on the interstate; the majority on way back road twisties, hilly curves and curvy hills. Particularly pleasurable:

Rt. 9 & 51 from Martinsburg to Cumberland;
Rt. 47 from Parkersburg to nowhere; and
Rt. 72, the Cheat Valley Highway, a one lane blacktop.

VA, MD, PA, WV and OH. Everything that could go wrong...didn't. We got sprinkled on twice and actually wished for rain on Monday, and otherwise the weather was terrific. The bike failed to blow up. Even traffic Monday afternoon, which I thought would be simply awful along Rt 7 from Winchester, was just fine, mostly 65 mph all the way in.

The Beast did great but my gosh I need a new rear shock. Oil change. Check valves. Do...something about power delivery...still slightly uneven despite spark plugs, intake seal check, Twinmax and TB synch. But! Mileage perked right up to 48 mpg for the trip, much more what I'd like to see.

Other thoughts: The Daily Grind in Buckhannon, WV is terrific for breakfast. Rt. 7 in OH along the OH River is designated as scenic, but that must be with Harley Drivers in mind. Also I want another Beadrider. Worked wonders on the Tiger.

Glad you had a good time! I see Rt7 looks similar in design to 124 south of Parkersburg in that it follows the bank along the Ohio. If you make it out there again, I'd highly recommend it Glad to help on you shock swap etc. Maybe try cleaning or replacing yoru air filter too.

Heh, nice pics!

Air filter is stock and is, or looks, new. I texted you a pic of the Beast as of Friday afternoon...Carly and I took down the rear end...only to confirm that your shock doesn't fit this model. But getting the thing apart was pretty educational.



And the wheel didn't fall off even a little this weekend.

Hey do I NEED a new crush washer for the oil change, or can I re-use if it's not obviously farked?

You don't NEED one but if you stop by I just may have an EXTRA ;)

Bummer that shock didn't fit! Darn. Looks like a rebuild or some fresh shocks is in order. Well worth the $$. Folks have luck getting rid of old ones on the FM or in the free section

Wink

strap em to the GS if you want to try it over here one night. Tank removal is a piece of cake if you have quick disconnects. More importantly, it would be good to check your subframe bolts and engine mounts since some crash bars actually bolt through those (like mine).

I'm 75% down the removal route. They're just so lame. I would buy an actual pair of good ones at some point though.

It means I need to find a place to put the LEDs though. I bought a little set of 55w ones last night and am curious to see what they do for me--but I gotta find a spot on the bike for them first. They come with little swivel brackets, I'll post a pic tonight. I'll cut the wires on the existing tired-out ones and connect these instead. The existing ones are connected to the ignition.

Might be headed toward a KLR-style homebrew solution involving a strip of metal under the beak. Like this but you know...cheaper.

Some clothing for sale

I am selling some clothing I am not going to wear. I would like to offer it locally before putting on the big list or Craigslist.

The gear is in my home in Washington, DC.

My asking price is included but feel free to make an offer!

PM me with any questions.


Joe Rocket Meteor 4

Size Large

http://www.motorcyclegear.com/street...le_jacket.html


http://pages.infinit.net/mcrides/pro...r-4-jacket.htm

There is damage to the elbow area, the material underneath is not perforated. Otherwise in good condition.











I would like $50.00









Oxtar GTX Goretex boots size 42

In generally good shape but with some roughing on the leather. They are still waterproof.

http://www.oxtar-boots.com/matrix.html

I would like $60.00





Hein Gericke mesh jacket

Size Large


This is an all mesh jacket with minimal padding in the back shoulders and elbows.

It is in fair to good condition with no obvious blemishes. It has a “custom made” exhaust burn to give added mobility in the thumb area. ;-)

Lastly, a pair of First Gear winter gloves. Size Medium.

These are Thinsulate lined leather gloves in good condition.







I would like $25.00
