Saw a 100plus van crossing the white double white line to go into PIE. The van was behind me. I had also wanted to enter PIE too but saw a bike in the lane I was going into so figured that I shall wait to let him pass. Saw this reckless act in my mirrors. Luckily the rider was able to swerve out to the 1st lane and that lane was empty. Later on the same van 'forced' its way in causing a rider on the left lane to slow down and let the van in and ahead of him. :mad:

 

Unable to get footage of this due to having issues with the usb cable. Of all days it had to be yesterday. On the bright side due to them being alert they survived another day. :cool:

 

sometimes, i just feel like giving up riding to work. just that occasional ride to malaysia but i realise there, more reckless drivers. when we read of the recent accident at PIE or highways, we wonder if these "van: drivers read the news.

Concur with your sentiments. However once I start to ride again after not riding for sometime I realised it brings me joy. Its so much fun to ride. Of coz minus the dumb drivers. :cool:

More cases of 'You appear out of nowhere' excuses? More sideswipes? More drivers not checking blindspots? :rolleyes:

the question is who's responsible if those boys had been seriously injured or worse the car drivers were also injured? how does insurance comes into play? how will TP help the car driver?

 

many question unanswered

The ultimate solution is to jury rig the camera's power supply (5V USB) into the bike battery. Unlimited recording time. Just get a power converter/accessory plugset from Mustafa to get the 5V supply. you'll have a couple spare 12V sockets to play with too.

 

Hi, have you tried this out?

 

I rigged my bike battery to supply power to the camera when the bike switch is turned on. It seems like the camera is taking a lot of power from the bike battery. The bike alternator can't seem to charge bike battery back up to the original 12v after I installed the camera (I have a voltmeter installed). Unfortunately, 4 months after I set this up, my bike battery died. Usually my bike battery lasts about 2 years.

 

Any comments?

hi guys i too am in the market for some camera. im looking at either the drift ghost/stealth OR a bike mounted front and back cam. But problem is, im really afraid if the camera will mess up my electronic/wiring. you see, my previous bike was installed with alot of accessory (fog lights,bike alarm, etc) by the previous owner and the bike always broke down after 3-4 months from electrical problems (one time it was battery,then it was my rectifier, then battery again, previous owner changer magnet coil before) SO now im riding a different bike and i am soo paranoid about my electronics i dont even dare install a voltmeter.

 

so back to the question, will a bike mounted camera affect my electronic system?

I realised the problem has got nothing to do with the camera. my camera was connected parallel to the head light. I.e it was not hot wired directly to the battery. the camera only sucks power from the battery when the ignition switch is turned on. this is also when the battery is charged by the alternator if the engine is running.

 

the reason why my bat died was because the alternator coil was burnt. took a few rounds of trouble shooting (changed battery, rectifier) to finally narrow it down to the alternator, replacement of which is very tedious.

from my experience, the camera's current draw from the battery is minute. if you wire the camera parallel to the headlight, it only draws current when the ignition is turned on. the rate at which the alternator charges the battery is much higher than one or two components like a camera and a voltmeter can draw power. that is why a rectifier is needed to reduce the charge current that the alternator produces to about 14 volts to charge the battery. just make sure whatever components you want to connect are connected down line of the ignition.

 

hope that helps

Riding and the traffic light in front is red. Traffic is pretty much at a standstill. As usual just squeeze to get to the front. Getting ready to move off once the traffic light turns to green so as not to delay the others. Then this. :eek:

That was the first. Guess I should have expected all kinds of stunt. :cool:
