Great idea but a possible problem, if you take it out in wet weather that is, will the position of the camera be in a vacuum/vortex and get coverd in the crud off the roads kicked up by the rear tyre?

It only ever goes out in the wet Uggy if I've gone somewhere in the dry and then it's rained.
I have also put the camera itself into a baffle tube which will protect it from the majority of turbulence.
If I still get debris causing a problem, I'm in the middle of making an external cover lens which encloses the whole thing and can just be wiped clean.

A bit like your 'jogging' bottoms then..................(not that those bottoms have ever 'jogged' anywhere with you inside them!).



What about when it gets dark Nic, can the brightness of the screen be turned down so not to glare in the riders eyes?

Yes it can, but you forget that the bike only has a daytime MOT.  ;)

Here we go, better lighting for these shots.
Firstly I went out without a cover on the camera to see if the baffle works, which it does, but I'm making the secondary cover all the same.

So, this is how dirty the back of the bike was after a damn good hoon:



And these are images from the camera after said hoon:





As you can see, the images are of very good quality, funnily enough, the same quality as the Hunter NV unit.
I've also mirrored the image so it is ass you would see when using a physical mirror.

Only problem is, I'm going into corners and spending all my attention on what lean angle I've got by looking at the screen, rather than concentrating on the road!

I wouldn't bother mate, as going by your chicken strips, it's not very far! :P ;D


However, I am willing to swap a set of worn out Dainese knee sliders (so you can get some street cred, and look like a riding God) for say, a PB Hunter, if ya want Mucker??   ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Nic, make me one for my Esprit, so I can see them eating my exhaust fumes as they disappear in to the distance.

That's 2 bikes you've cocked up now, remember what I said, got a little plot waiting for you down at the farm.

Seriously. If you want one for the Esprit, I'll make the loom up next week.
And, regarding the other matter, a "little plot" ain't going to be no good. I dump bigger than that.  ;D
