    Moto GP

    Watching MotoGP in Argentina. Love the tail cameras that stay at 0* while the bike is thrown from side to side. Still amazes me that you can lean a bike over at 61* and not fall over. This is the second race in a row I've seen Marquez almost crash on the last turn of the last lap of the race.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    His new trade mark??/

    I'm brainstorming on a way to build one of those cameras. It would make a great Hack A Week project. It would take an accelerator, a micro controller, a stepper motor driver and a stepper motor.

    I LOVE the Argentina course. Seemed like Rossi he was more in his element on this track than the younger riders.

    These are certainly bigger than what I see on the bikes.

    Wonder what they cost, expensive I'm sure.

    My friend ( a retired programmer) has made one. Here is a video of him riding behind me with one of the prototypes:
