    My camera has a mind of its own

    I have a few (male) friends whose sense of humor is every bit as warped as mine They've been wanting me to upload this to YouTube for months, but I totally forgot about it, plus I was a bit hesitant to do so at first. I told one of them about Bike Forums and asked him if he was sure I wouldn't get banned for posting this here, since he's been on the net much longer than me and I figured he would know. He said no. Now if this is a violation of the TOS please let me know immediately and I will remove it.

    What happened is, I had just descended Donner Pass Road and was riding through a bumpy gas station parking lot. My camera was still recording and started to swivel in the handlebar mount. I didn't notice it until I stopped. Well, check out where the camera decided to come to rest

    OK, so when I read the OP I was expecting to see a guy's crotch but the alternate gender 'funny view' was equally funny - right up to the last seconds of the film when I choked on my drink here.

    Brilliant! Comic timing FTW, even if completely unintentional.

    That made my morning. Excellent! I also like that at the very end, when you correct the camera position, it's pointing at a toilet.

    Like I said in the OP and the video description, I had just descended a mountain and was riding through a bumpy gas station parking lot. My camera was attached to my bike on a handlebar mount, and it loosened and started to swivel in the mount. I was unaware of this until I stopped the bike. Just look at where the camera decided to stop moving

    To everyone else, thanks

    Do you have any off-road video with that same camera?

    Why would that violate TOS? If you were in a sports bra only maybe... I thought it was funny though.

    I thought that someone who is too uptight might complain. Looks like my worries were unfounded though

    If posting the Polish National Cycling team isn't a violation of the TOS, then this can't be....
