Yeah I left my gas key clipped to the backpack I wasn't wearing one too many times and got clear pissed off about it and did something about it. Glad it helped you.

I don't know if its that crazy, new-fangled camera or what...but that area looks so different than Brooklyn. :). Wish we had some of that closer to here.

Nice footage. YouTube really does a number after it transcodes it, tough to tell quality after they have their way with it. Keep up the good rides and vids.

It's crazy how long it takes to upload! My wife is watch a movie so I can't even watch it with out it buffering every few sec. It's almost not worth all the trouble.

Edit: I think my Internet is messed up. I just shut the wifi off on my iPhone and watched it with out any buffering.

Just set it and forget it. Waiting for it to upload is like watching water boil. Just start the upload, and walk away or you'll sour on the process.

Thats pretty good footage 1 Lunger . Was pretty impressed with the lack of wind noise and the clarity in which you could hear you and the bike. Were abouts is the mic positioned and how long can they film for.

2 hrs continuous in 1080p HD and I forget how long in 720p, maybe 4 hrs. the mic is right next to the lens and its got back round noise buffering. I think these are a great deal! Cheaper than a GoPro and a nice goggle ($60-80 value) too

Nice. A group of us were out there a while back. We met some hikers too and they seemed cool. Share the trails people. It can be done. We also met mountain biker Jim. I think he had me confused with you (you know, a Husky rider) because I had never met him before. Ed G knows him.

Yeah that guy seems to have disappeared, emails go unanswered.

Besides, he was charging around $100 for that...To get an extra 6-8 ounces? Not worth it to me.

Not sure why they have them marked for honda, the clutch pull on the honda is like squeazing butter compared to the 610.

Looking forward to seeing some footage lunger.

here is a pic
Harley had these back in the 50's. They reduce pull effort but increase pull length. Not to mention additional weight.

If you think the clutch pull is excessive on your Husky, something is wrong.
I say that because the clutch on my 2000 model has a super easy clutch pull, best ever!
Y'all must have a rotten cable, lever in need of cleaning and lube or bad shaft bearing.

Yeah, and? My 07 clutch is buttery smooth and has just the right amount of resistance. I've seen a lot of people wanting to go to a hydro clutch, never understood why, those things are horrible, spongy and no feel to them.

But maybe that's just because I've only ever had one bike with a hydro clutch (which I changed to a cable LOL)

not worth it for the extra capacity but worth it to me for convenience and an extra bit of bling!
