Ok, I think that is Nate. Super cool guy. :)

Those pictures mostly look like the ones we were given on the promo USB drive, or that came on the CD along with all the pictures the photographer took of us that weekend.

Those little GoPro cameras are just fantastic! Nice video! thanks for posting.

Yeah I really loved that little camera. I bought a chest mount for it, specifically for that weekend. Worked out great since you sit more upright on that bike. But some of the footage I got wasn't as good, during the times when we were going a lot faster and I was leaned in on the tank, but didn't adjust the camera, so you see nothing but gauge. :p I was so excited being out there riding, I forgot I had the camera on much of the time.

It broke a few weeks ago, so I am going to replace it with an HD gopro.

I had one of those Gopros Hd's I made about 10 videos with it and sold due to the amount of evidence I was creating against myself! lol I kept the movies to look back at when I'm 112yrs old. lol

It was weird.. a couple of us that owned them agreed; we got into "stuntman mode" every time we went out with it because we wanted to make a great movie.

Trust me it gets old quick. The cameras are amazing though!
I would buy another if it took just pictures and at 12mp.

Naughty naughty! :p

I don't do wheelies, and never frame the speedo, so my videos don't hold much evidence except maybe the odd double-line pass.

You are right in that the camera affects how you ride though. For me, I make more effort to get closer to other riders to make the video more interesting if possible, and try to get my lines right. :)

On the Z1000? I don't own one (yet). The video was from a press ride I did earlier this year, so I took it easy.

most all the time. do you question my veracity? i'm serious about the front end. it's very light. my son came back smilin' big and said " mine(09 zx10r) won't do that. he's getting a 520 kit for his bike down 1 in front up 3 in back. i told him he better read some on the kawi forum first. seems like an awful big change to me.
