I’ve been bullied into doing something I never thought I would: I’ve bought a GoPro (Hero, £94.99 from Amazon) to use on the S1000RR.
The positive motivation is that I feel like my riding is always improving, but not that I’m making any specific progress. So I thought that being able to record my own riding might be a good way to get some pointers – both on road and track. My first lesson learned is that I’m not opening the throttle fast enough from the apex. That’s progress.
The second, more negative, motivation is the amount of awful driving I see on the roads. If I get caught up in someone else’s mess, I want the proof on film. And I might even get £250 form Harry Hill.
