it looks awesome! but my buddy rossi told me to tell you that you need to be either on the throttle or on the brakes, nothing in between. lol. nice riding out there...

the data hooked up to a throttle position sensor? and a brake light?

i'm jealous, i am always in a quest for obtaining numbers to chart.

I'm fairly certain his setup uses accelerometers.

you have to be a pro racer to use that, it's illegal for trackday guys to possess this kinda equipment

sorry, this racer/trackday thing is NEVER going to get old! i love it!

You are correct, I have sensors for throttle position and brake activation. The system also incorporates GPS for speed and track mapping, as well as lateral and longitudinal accelerometers.

This was taken with just a sticky mount for the camera on the tail section of my SV.

Ask TheMajicMan if you want to know what camera it was because I have no idea, other than it was a wide angle.

Easy to make, but I promised the person who concieved the bracket that I wouldn't spread it around. If you want to contact him, he may be able to help by selling you the plans or selling you a bracket. I'm sure it wouldn't be too expensive- certainly worth whatever he would charge.

But I was a racer, so I probably don't know what I'm talking about
Pics or it doesnt exist

Yall crack me up with this "im not a racer", "Im not a racer anymore". I have an idea for a mount that Im gonna draft up and have a machine shop make, still working on the vibration damping though. Not sure if it will work yet. You should have your buddy PM me with those plans

that's awesome!

i have a gopro but haven't uploaded much footage to the web. here is my gopro on the ruckus forks:
YouTube - Test Ruck

PM SBK Pilot, he'll line you out if he can. The damping is all taken care of with this mount. The IS on the GoPro is very good already, but with the mount it's absolutely without vibration.

Here's a distance shot so I don't give it away up close

Hmmm, there is quite a bit of passing in Novice. Just nothing in the turns, right? Next time, introduce yourself. That will do wonders.
