Nite Ride Pics and Camera takes a Dive. Jinxed by Another Poster
A poster in the Clyde forum jinxed me!
....Never a problem dropping the camera till HE mentioned it! Well now I know it's one tough camera. Took a dive at 25 mph, slid thru the water, hit the curb and still tickin'. Had to backtrack about 10 yards looking for the memory card in the dark. Little bugger jumped out on impact. Did a roadside check and it still works.
The ride was very nice! 30 miles, final 10 in the dark. Air is much nicer at night and the bike just floated up the hills. From home up Euclid across to DayCreek Park. Back to Euclid, down then back up!
Couple of pics from behind the bars
Thanks to a big fat mailbox and the timer, got a pic of my poseur self
Getting ready to head down into the dark
Happy after the camera survived a 25 mph dive. Can't really see but I was coming up on 2 mtb's with blinkies, little fuzzy! Cameera focused on my face rather than the bikes ahead.
