Oregon Scientific is right here in my back yard. They make some cool stuff. I especially like their alarm clock with projecting red time on the ceiling. Makes it easy to see what time it is in the middle of the night.

They have been around for a few years and make quality products.

I have one on my race bike. needed a cheap way to video my track days. I drilled holes in my plastics and side mounted it. it works all the way up to 178 mph. no problem but the audio starts to get weird at about 140. I dont know how to mount it on a F4 but when I do I will post how to. The only problem with it for a daily driver is it only stores about a hour of video with the upgraded memory.

I've one for now a few month and that's what I've done with it on my 910S this summer.
Enjoy.

People in the UK have been taken to court with the evidence from 'on bike' footage, best left for the track I think, If they looked at anything on board form any of our ride outs there would be a ban and hefty fine heading my way for sure

True, but a quick delete function like the Ducati 1098 engine data system would be a good response!

I am more interested in having footage to use against the cops. Just under a year ago I was booked on a totally fabricated "unsafe overtaking" charge by highway patrol cops while running in my F41000R.

I was sticking to the speed limit and not overtaking in the "wrong" spots etc as I knew that the cops were on that road, but that did not stop them from doing a U turn and following me for about 8 km. When the could not get me for speeding they made up the other BS charge.

My lawyer wanted access to the police video footage before the case but this was refused - apparently here access to evidence before trial on traffic offences is not a right!

Anyway, I had a very good and well known motorcycle lawyer and a few days before the trial the prosecutor dropped the police case as it "lacked substance".

After that experience I'm all in favour of having your own video evidence if possible. And also, my advice is except in totally pointless cases, take the charge to court. If I had not, the arseholes would have won by default.

Here (NSW in Oz) cops video and voice record you every time they stop you, so make sure you clearly deny all wrong doing. Admit nothing. Stand with you back to the car so it makes the video harder to interpret and mumble as much as possible. Attempting to get them to "go easy" is a waste of time with the recorded interview. It is also worth saying you do not consent to being recorded. An old friend of mine when I was in my 20s who was a lawyer used to say the only thing you should ever say to a cop was "I have done nothing wrong and I have nothing to say". He is a supreme court judge these days .....

cheers
