Well...My attempt to fabricate a really cool helmet mounted video camera mast has been an abject failure.

The plan was to take a fibreglass rod, and mount it the the rear of the helmet, then arc it up over the helmet, secured by two small cables to either side of the visor. I was then going to mount a really trick little magentic ball-joint to hold a tiny POV camera in place, and be able to film rear/side and quatering shots in full motion.

Well - that ain't gonna happen now.

After finding some nice hardware, and coming up with some really trick and elegant mounting solutions, it turns out the angles are all wrong, and the cable supports, well, they just don't provide enough support. Lastly, I snapped the rod trying to experiment with a four cable solution....

Fuck - I might just have to resort to duct-taping a broom handle to the chin-guard on my helmet....Hmmmm actually, I have an old carbon-fibre ski pole in the basement...

Can't wait to go now...I've crossed over to the point in every trip where you suddenly realize that you are REALLY leaving in like 3 days!

It's GO TIME!

It appears changing the oil on a 950A may take less time and be simpler than setting up the FlannyCamTM.








ps - Anxiously awaiting Gregor's photos.

C'mon now, you're taking it too far. Nothing is as difficult as changing the oil on a 950.

I can lend you the Dalicam 5000 but I'm not sure if you can handle that beast. It's put together with all the latest technology!

Cry Toms in Grand Junction.

Wanted to be a trucker on the way out so I was trying to blend in...

20101025 Moab 013

Traveling across the states I ran into a lot of this. I had to stop and take a picture. It was all just to thrilling.

20101025 Moab 018

I drove a lot at night.....took some pictures to keep myself going and keep awake.

20101025 Moab 008

Once the sun came up on the 2nd day I woke up to this and discovered I had made it.

20101025 Moab 028


The truck had some issues so once I met up with my uncle in Colorado we unloaded the bikes and took the truck down to a garage to have it looked at.

20101025 Moab 031

My uncle John(left) had a friend named Gary who was nice enough to let us store the bikes at his place.

20101025 Moab 040

After we dropped the truck off to get looked at. We set out to try and find some Elk. My uncle and Gary were dead set on finding these things. Finally after a very dedicated search we found them.

20101025 Moab 043

Heading over to central city I came across this old run down house. I saw this bike there and thought I should get a little practice in. ELBOWS UP!!

20101025 Moab 058

A couple days went by and I finally got the truck back. I had a day to myself so I drove around Colorado just following the GPS to "points of interest" I went to the Redrocks and a dinosaur footprint thing. The GPS also took me to a park where I found this sign. Parks in Colorado are no joke.

20101025 Moab 069

On the way to meet my uncle for dinner I saw a sign for buffalo bills grave and decided to check that out. On the way I stopped at the mountain over pass to take another picture.

20101025 Moab 075

My blue steel look at buffalo Bills grave. With a little art sauce flare thrown in.

20101025 Moab 090

So I didn't take many pictures today..... Im in Grand Junction. I took my bike out when I got here to ride it around a little bit. It was a good thing I took it out because its not running right haha. It wouldn't shift into second . and then while I was trying to figure out why it wasnt shifting.... It wouldnt stay idling. It was acting like it wasnt getting any gas so I killed the battery trying to start it...... I didn't really want to play the detective game anymore so I found the nearest motor-sports place and dropped it off. Hopefully its something simple . The bike worked fine in NYC. Oh well we will see what happens
