Would like to know what set up any of you guys might be using for a vid cam? My old 8mm vid cam has recently bit the dust, I made a spounge rubber craddle for it and duct taped it to the tank, actually worked not bad but its time to update equip. My friend Howlin Mad has a helmet cam. I think I would like to use a digital vid with the stem stand. But wondered what else is available. Aloha - Kent

I ordered one for my cam that bolts to the gas cap ring using the bolts that dont go into the tank. Havent got it yet, but it cradles the camera and looks very secure. Cost $70 plus shipping. The addy is www.geocities.com/copharr to see it.

I hope it works out good.

it may sound strange, but try your local "spy shop" they usually sell equipment for survalence. the cameras are small and easy to mount to anything. keep it on your bike, and not in the girls bathroom

Call me a tech nerd, but how do you record from the vid? I am sure you don't have a VCR in a rucksack?

I guess my main Q are the following:

What do you use for power?

What medium for recording?

How do you get the "clocks" and the road infront on the screen at the same time?

I have an old ( 1995 ) RCA 8 mm video camera with rechargable batteries, tape is loaded from the top, and as I mentioned above I duct taped it to the tank and the view is through the windscreen and yes you can see the top half of the guages...

Mine works on a digital screen from the cockpit and records everything in front of me. Especially nutters. The camera is inside my headlamp lense

It's a bit james bond like

Well Hawaii I didn't get the helmet cam. Just ran out of bucks when I turfed the busa. I have been using the stem stand with my digital camcorder. Here is a pic for you to check it out. I will admit sometimes It get a little bumpy but most of the time excellent video.

If you have videos that you would like to add to the videos download page then let me know and I can create you an FTP login to send the file to.

Just a reminder for all those crazies out there that send in videos. I would never condone tricks and stunts on the public roads, the dangers are just too great However if you have videos to send in make sure that your tag numbers are edited and you cannot be identified, I do not want to get any complaints from someone that there was a video taken of them and sent in with their tag showing. There has been several instances recently where the police have seized tapes off of bikes, or was able to identify other riders from a tape and charge them in criminal court. I do not want to accept videos that someone else could get in trouble for.

Thanks
Captain
