It’s been like a continuous birthday here the last couple of days. Several eBay purchases I had been waiting for for weeks finally arrived (As an aside, why is it that General Motors can build an engine in Virginia and have it at a plant in Ontario in 12 hours, but it takes Canada Customs 3 weeks to process a t-shirt?) including the biggie – a GoPro HD camera.
I’ve had my eye on one of these little gems since I first saw them at a show in January, so as soon as I had a bit of what is euphemistically referred to as “disposable income” from the sale of some no-longer-required parts on eBay, the order was placed. Also on eBay, of course.
Today it arrived, along with the mounting gear I had ordered that would allow me to use my RAM mount. (The GoPro has it’s own rather unique mounting system.)
But as is often the case, the thrill of playing with the new toy will have to wait as I am out of town (no riding involved, but golf and casinos will play a significant role) for the next week or so. I haven’t even left yet and already I can’t wait to get back home to strap it on the bike and go play. It even comes with a helmet mount, so perhaps I’ll grab an old helmet and drive a few back roads and trails for something different, never-before-seen video footage of the back roads of Lanark Highlands.
A boy and his toys…..
