I really hope he does not come off his bicycle head first. He would almost certainly suffer serious head injuries, despite the crash helmet.

Yes, I think you’re right James...

For some reason he reminds me of that crazy frog that did the rounds a few years ago...

The SJ cams on ebay are great, £30 ish for a 4k (alleged) definition, I have an Early hd version that I have had for 4 or so years, pop a fast card in and you get some great footage!

Very OT but a link to the last time i used the camera in October, mine is the early HD action cam, or as referred to by most of us, The No Pro! ;-) is on a chest mount, end of a local loop down a countour line that is normally very overgrown from the coast path into the village in Portreath,

there should be other video's on my youtube thingy from the camera,

That's excellent quality :) Worried it has sound as all you'd hear from me is less than NSFW terms of abuse directed at errant motorists :lol:

Keith Adams gets a namecheck on Autoshite,from this poster who bought this red BX from him.....my Northumberland spot was a J-Reg 207,000 miles on it at its last MOT.
