I just pulled the trigger on a Contour 1080P. Can't wait for my friend in the brown truck to arrive.
I have a Drift Stealth that is mounted on the side of my helmet. I bump the top of my helmet on tree branches in the woods ALL THE TIME so mounting a camera Go Pro style was never a serious consideration. :eek1 You can sometimes see the visor in the upper corner of the frame, depending on how wide I adjust the zoom on the camera. You can see it hanging off the chin bar of my helmet in this pic
Wind noise is an issue. I made a ghetto "wind sock" for mine. It is made out of one of my Army boot socks and covers the mic on the camera.
It does a decent job of cutting out most of the wind noise.
I did get a nod from the one guy. It as funny watching the word spread up the line... everyone up in front kept looking back... like someone farted in the elevator!
When I pass those Harley types on the street I give them a wave and they usually wave back. The sport-bike types almost never do.
Let's see Honda,Harley, aren't they all the same
Mr. Postman came by my house yesterday.................
Just like an early Christmas. Let the fun begin!
That looks like big fun!
Fun or Trouble, I'm not sure which. I'm reading that these are pre-jetted and ready to go, however I know there may very well be some adjustments to do to get it just right. My users manual is not very informative on "your air screw is here, and your blah-blah is there............etc. There are a few more jets/screws/and adjustments for this carb than all others I've seen. :huh I just hope it's real close on the jetting, and maybe just a minor adjustment on fuel mixture or something is all I end up having to do....... I hope Further post will follow I'm sure.
I find the opposite where I am. I get waves back from the sport-bikes, but hardly any of the cruisers.
This is one of my other bikes. I wave at everyone. I don't care what you ride I just love bikes.
I used to wave...not so much anymore. But if someone else waves I'll wave back.
Some of the cruisers I'd pass and wave at would give me the "I'm too much of a bad ass to wave at you" look. Funny when the last guy in a line of them, or their pillion rider would sheepishly give me a wave...almost like they were thinking, "I hope the rest of the group doesn't see me doing this".
Nice video Red!
what no lane splitting?
That's a California thing...
If someone does the old "cool point at ground" wave at me I make it a point to stick my arm way up in the air and wave franticly!
Ditto, I can fine something exciting and good in most any motorcycle.
same here. sport bikes will wave back where most Harley riders won't.

Happy belated Birthday to me!!
Just sitting on the bike now I realize how hammered my side covers are.
Can't wait to get some seat time. If the wife only knew how much money I spend on the bike she'd be pissed!!!
Just wanted to say thanks to Fritz for following me home tonight after our gathering. I had no idea my tail light was Spazzing out. I'm gonna have to take it apart and see what's causing it. Oh Joy and Rapture! Here I go again with the tail light.......
Oh, that looks so comfortable...
Same here. I've actually had HD guys shake their heads at me when I waved.
But I don't wave much these days. I will return a wave but never wave first. Too many bikes on the road. The old wave started since there were a lot less riders on the road, so those that rode saluted each other for riding. That is kind of pointless now that so many people ride.
