I would have a dual camera on the Goldwing, front and rear, if nothing else get an obsolete camcorder from a pawnshop, something big, does not have to actualy work you know, mount it to the rear luggage rack at eyeball level. Put a little red led next to it. Even a drunk redneck can see that.

Or just go full Youtube, get the video recording, post it on Youtube, its an explosive social gathering, idiot gets slammed by thousands, who knows maybe his employer sees it.....

Use the force....

and, I will be installing one of the bullet style video cameras for a rearward looking view to catch the license plates of those neer-do-wells.... with that ammo, the LEO community can take them to court... My video camera logs the date/time and has GPS capability also, which I am going to add "real soon now".

We are a little off track here. The ranting seems to be over. This camera is about the best option I have seen to date. Less than a GoPro and easier to use. I am also thinking front and rear views. If something bad happens then there will at least be some evidence of who is at fault. I will have to mount the remote controls in the unused air bag cavity. I will want them active at all times while the key is on. I am sure there will be better deals on the units around Christmas.

They get poed when a simple twist of the throttle prevents them from sneaking into that safety gap. Many give me the finger. They try to cut me off while traveling at 80 mph and get mad when they cant. Wings have large side view mirrors the size of cars so seeing them coming is quite easy. I am seeing more and more NJ and NY style drivers in NH. Being prepared for their antics is better than giving reason for them to run you off the road. I often think of glass marbles that shatter leaving no evidence. I won't because their cars will still be mobile allowing them to cause me great harm. Worse yet, my innocent wife could get hurt or worse. I had considered mothballing my 1800 for the season because of the idiots on route 16 in the morning. Not pleasurable! As for trucks, I have been next to one in my car when a tire cap blew off. It would have killed me on a bike. Stay away! The instability created by their wind buffeting gives reason to avoid them at all costs. Anticipating scenarios and being aware of escape routes is as many know the secret to surviving on today's cluttered roads. Be safe.

Only in the literal sense, in that the LEOs can throw some painful rocks at their wallets....

As said before, that is why I chose the Wheel Witness: documents date/time/gps; has very Hi-Res and 178* field of view.

the new HDBullet has my interest, and it is probably going to be new Rear View to catch the tag numbers.

w/o a rear camera, the LEO said I have to catch the perp and get a video of his tag number... that involves a U-turn and a hot rod race to catch up to the perp.... not something I really need to be doing.

Lets pride ourselves on being the more skilled vehicle operator in any situation,
smarter- able to see and sense bad situations developing and avoid them.
And a better person for allowing someone in a great hurry to go past.
They must be very self-important at the least~

Enjoy YOUR trip, avoid the freeways and breathe,,always keep breathing
Failure to continuously breathe can lead to shortness of Life

Those are things I say to myself before a ride, If something has occurred to raise negative emotions
while on the road then:
Exit road and talk yourself thru the experience. `I am the better smarter driver.
I forgive the other driver for their inattention`
I am Whole I am Calm~

Now its ok to get back on the road
It helps this type A to be a bit chill...so I don't really hook up the oil slick generator or spike dumper
