I can see them clearly, what type of mount are you using when youre riding/ recording? Stationary the video quality is great.

Camera came with several mounts. It's mounted solid to the driving light bracket. I knew there would some vibration, it's a Harley, but it's still pretty good. I will live with it for now. I know mounting on helmet would be best, but I don't want it there.

I had troubles seeing the camera also. Having a printers eye my eye was drawn to all the crap on the shelf. Just kidding my garage i can't even see the work bench.

Looks good les. Id leave the fender in the video. It helps give some perspective. Pretty clear video for a budget camera.

After watching the video i have a little constructive criticism. You should have stopped at the yellow light.
The shadow makes you look a lot bigger. If you got your old yamaha back it would shake less. And last i think it would be more efficient for the collectors if the recycle cart was on the other side of the drive. To sum it all up nice job!

1. I'll stop twice next time at that light.

2. Any bike I'm on looks big since I'm still waiting for that growth spurt that the doctor promised me years ago.

3. You are correct on Yamaha shaking less. No the video looks like my brain, a little scambled.

4. I used to put trash can on other side. Then trash guys asked me to put it there. Trash man is now happy and will pick up anything I put out there.

5. Thanks for the nice job comment.

Her's a few more videos I took today. First one was at 5 am going to work. Night vision with camera is poor. Anything that reflects light or emits light don't record very well. This is part unlit road and then getting on freeway. Second video is on same road as first video I posted. This is an extremely rough road with big expansion joints, grooves and dips. This is actually the worst video section of over a hour recording going home. Third one is a smoother road, yes it rained on me today. Still getting a little more camera movement than I want, but getting better. The camera is going to work well for what I want.

I like the video quality. There are a few giggly moments but overall it's well edited and nicely done. Now we need some music.
