    Nice camera, it might even be a half decent replacement for our aging DV camera which we have zero budget to replace

    As for the driving... looks like a fairly typical drive home in london to me, I'd imagine thats at least a 45min drive by car!

    Would love to get a bike but my other half whines about my driving as it is, driving in london has changed my style a lot - its much more defensive than it used to be

    The ones you notice do. The ones who don't probably aren't remembered by you any more than you remember a car driven well.

    Oh this is funny rep:

    I have reported this to the police and the council.

    The council ? What have they got to do with it ? Plus I actually ride through 2 different councils !!

    OMG this is turning into a thread of EPIC proportions!!!

    @mattx - cool little video camera. would have been nice to see it mounted elsewhere as i wasn't too keen on the view. Kept thinking you were gonna hit the cars as you went past them

    everyone else - whilst i disagree with some of the manoeuvres that matt made i wouldn't start whining at the guy. This is his riding style and he ain't gonna change it just cos you don't like it. I see worse things than that on a daily basis near where i live. Yes i moan about it at the time and fill the air with expletive filled rants but then i get over it.

    I'm thinking of getting one of those cameras and filming my journey to work in a naked gun style tribute.

    Honestly, there are greater travesties in the world than the way someone rides a Motorbike.

    Again mattx, nice camera and thank you for showing it off. Next time drop the dodgy music

    Such a reply has done nothing for your already ruined credibility, so, I'll ask again, what do you think gives you the right to 'overtake' where other road users are not permitted to do so?

    Thanks - that's the biggest laugh you have given me all day. I've been rather busy and whilst overtaking cars on the way home I just could not stop laughing to myself. Brilliant - thanks. You certainly know how to make people laugh.

    I've been looking at one of these again although I would get a right kicking from Mrs. Tech_Guy and she'd probably leave me..........

    Ah now I think I see where your dislike for car drivers comes from...owning one of those must leave terrible scars on ones psyche...
