My end can is different to your one Ian. it's a straight through can with NO restrictions in it, and a removable baffle/db killer, and it is..... A Lot louder than the standard can that comes with that Delkevic system ( I know, I have the standard can as well ;) )

So, I did a little "footpeg cam" video, I like the angle but there is too much noise and vibration ;)

Gawd how I love these things and what you guys do with them. I tried to get a cheap thrill with the $20 version, but all I got was cheap!

Ha ha, been there done that ;)
I tried various different cheapish cameras, the action cams are expensive but are worth it :)
I think it is the wide field of view, the wider the FoV the less wobble...... the Go Pro hero 2 has a 170 degree FoV at 1080p

Even with the noise and vibration, it was still awesome to watch. :thumbsup:

OK Folks, here is another video, this time I mounted the camera on the mirror, and then on the engine case for some different perspectives :)

Mikee, you're going to get killed riding on the wrong side of the road like that, mate! :) Ha!
