pretty dam cool. Too bad that bar is right in the shot. If he could make the bar from the ..."trailer" (?) parallel to the ground then up to the hitch, it would be much less noticeable. great idea though

GoPro should be mounted to an auto-drive R/C car controlled by optical sensors attached to the bike to keep it within +/- 6' distance...


...Man I really need to go talk to some smarter friends and build up the money for a GoPro!

Guess you're right. The only NC presence I ever see is at the CROT. Never have seen much of any sort of police on the skyway. Guess I wasn't looking too hard.

Check your math. A bike leaned at 45 degrees is pulling .707 G's.
