My second concern is batteries, they recommend Lithium AAA's that are not rechargeable and run $9 for 4 at Fry's. Seems using Lithium's verse rechargeable NMH will get quite expensive. What type have you been using and how long are they lasting?

How easy is it to turn in on/off while riding and do you fear having it fly off at some point? Nice commanding view all around and the dash windshield of the GS800 seemed to be perfectly aligned in the pics.

Whatever you choose for a replacement for the tiger is secondary to me, it's the life on your terms and free spirit stories that are interlaced with pics telling the stories that I find this RR so enjoyable to read.

I bought a GoPro camera a couple weeks ago, here's the first video I took:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpNMDv5mxAM

The sound is not the best.
The 2 gig chip matches up with the lifespan on the AAA lithium batteries.

It's easy to find the on/off button and the record button.

It's not so easy to see if it's recording (the LED flash is not bright enough in most conditions).

Not a bad camera for $180.

Yeah but you can be sure somebody wants the camera mounted on the bars so they can watch TDP while she's riding.

juming on the band wagon

ok heres my take on the peach shot (from my "not so short ride in Ontario Canada)
I call it an anti-peach shot
Dont get excited i only mean it's all 180 degrees from the peach shot lol
its a dirt bike, on a dirt road
no center line ,, and finally I am the total opposite of peach
anyways you all get the idea lol
