Some of you might recall seeing the dude by the side of the road on our way into the hut, shooting pics of bikers passing by. The photos he shot are online now.
Sorry but still see it as intrusive and morally wrong
I would agree with that bud icon_thumbs_up.gif

It's a bit expensive but then again, I don't have the luxury of having a cameraman by the side of the road on my trips so I think it's worth it.
Simple, get one of the group to ride ahead & take pic's of the rest of the group, it's easy to arrainge & costs bugger all, different rider takes pic's on other ride-outs, everyone gets their picture, everyone gets to hone their camera skills, everyones a winner :D

I can see what you are saying. But for me I like the photo's being captured.
We are the most surveillanced country in the world, there are speed cameras everywhere and country lanes are the only place you can actually use your ability to enjoy the road (providing there isn't a police helicopter overhead sans A414) so you enjoy yourself (& i don't mean excessive speeds, illegal overtakes etc ) get it wrong and he cashes in on your misfortune and I've no doubt his morals wouldn't trouble him in the slightest cashing in.

It's bad enough every twat has a mobile phone in your face to share with the public courtroom of social media.

As a dinosaur I just long for simpler times

Some twat with a mobile phone could possibly save your life by phoning an ambulance in the event of you crashing while out enjoying yourself.

Re getting a group... We can do that if people are up for it on the next ride.

Chris

We used to do this a lot on the VV ride outs and got some great shots over the years.

It's a long time since I held a camera professionally but can always borrow the wife's Canon

RAM Xgrip that I am now trying to find on the web as it fits onto the rear brake reservoir
I'll have a look in the ice cream tub of Ram mounts kicking about from when I owned a fleet of bikes might be lucky
Phil all I have left over in brake reservoir mounts is
RAM-B-347U which is only a small square foot plate and likely wrong size for your burger but measure it up by all means
The rest are all bar clamps

Yes I read your thread, I don't have a problem with cameras either. Why would I have 'an opportunity for a dig as always', I don't know you, have never met you, and don't particularly want to either. You're just another name on this forum

You made a post, forums are about discussion, you put forward your opinion on twats with mobile phones, I posted mine. Whether a phone has a camera or not, it's primary use is making or receiving calls.

So as this a forum, you could play the game and have a go at the contents of the post, not who's posted it.

I've no intention of getting into a slagging match either, so wind your neck in.
