2010 too fiddy

another coming soon....






Yes he found the guy! The guy was really cool about it, he offered to buy Barry another cluster. But instead just sent Barry money through PayPal. Barry was prett cool about it too. Barry said he would buy a cluster and then send the guy back the money that was left over. I wish there were a lot more people like these two at the track!

That's good! I like hearing the good stories instead of the squeaky wheels that normal come up on forums. Really glad you didn't take that gopro to the face.

Naw his Go Pro was shattered...lol should have been tethered for sure.

GoPro has such a great customer service they will probably replace it from where the mount broke. I hope he gets it replaced too. It was a Hero 4 Blk.

You mean he isn't going to file a lawsuit for pain and sufforing and damages to the bike against the owner and TD org? what a novel concept

That was freaky to watch btw.

both of my hero 3 clip in things broke. The female part of the mount from the Hero 2 is slightly different I think, but it works....till the litle fingers break...
