04-10-11 WTF this asshole gave me a ticket!
I went to Clearwater beach today to watch the sunset. As I pulled up to where other bikers were getting parking tickets I asked the attendant where I could buy my parking pass. I parked the bike walked over and bought a parking pass and placed it as you can see on my bike in plain view of the meter bastard. I went and enjoyed the sunset with the added bonus of getting to listen and watch a Jazz band with a really good looking singer on the beach. I happily walked back to my bike which had almost 60 minutes left on its pass. I discovered a parking ticket on my throttle. Now I have to appear in Clearwater with my parking pass and receipt because the fanny-pack wearing asshole apparently can neither see a yellow parking pass on a blue bike or pay attention to me placing the pass on my bike right in front of his disgusting face.

The sunset I should have enjoyed

This was not as easy as I thought it would be. As it turns out the plug was put together improperly at the factory. After much trouble shooting and many burnt fuses the problem was discovered and the solution is as presented in the video. Be sure to hit subscribe.

I finally received my mini helmet cam and I am very happy with the video quality during daylight hours, however the audio leaves very much to be desired. I am searching for an inexpensive microphone/recorder combo at the moment. Until then I will go ahead and load up some video editing software and maybe just write over the audio with music. Below is a sample video. as you can see the video length is only 52 seconds that is because YouTube does not properly recognize mjpg encoded video in an AVI wrapper. I have discovered a solution to this problem going forward.
I recorded my ride to work this morning and should I find time I will chop it up add some music and post it for you tube as another test.
