zorkian: Icon full of binary ones and zeros in no pattern. (Default)
I got my broken camera replaced, and the new one worked great this morning. Here's a video of my commute this morning, from my house to the BMW dealership (have to get a recalled fuel level sensor replaced).

You can see some fun lane splitting from 1:40 to 2:10.

Sorry the quality is terrible, I'm still trying to work out how to get ffmpeg to do the speedup without losing the quality.

I'll have to post about it more in depth later, but this weekend I built a camera mount for my motorcycle. Of course, then I bought a Flip UltraHD camera and used it:

That's a 10x speed version of the ride from Best Buy at Union Landing back to the house. It took 14 minutes, but it's only 2 or 3 miles. Sigh.

But the camera died after the first run. It won't turn on anymore, so I'm going to have to take it back to Best Buy sometime (probably tomorrow?) and try to get another one. I really would like to have my camera in working order.

This weekend I also took my bike to the Carnegie SVRA (State Vehicular Recreation Area). I took my poor little BMW off-roading up and down hills, through dirt, sand, gravel, and rocks! And I nearly let her slide down a hillside, but managed to save it. Had to get somebody else to help me reorient and send her uphill again, though, as I could not on my own. Wish I had photos.

I decided that offroading is great fun, but I think I'd rather have a bike with tires more suited for it, and probably a little less expensive. While the F650GS is a dual-sport bike and can go offroad (and did quite well, considering), it's probably better if I'm not worried about my baby!

Hmmm... I was also oncall this weekend, and it wasn't too exciting. Nothing to report there. (And even if it was exciting... not like I could talk about it. Alas.)
