5D better than a handycam - handheld on a motorbike.

hi all - I shot this handheld whilst riding a motorbike. Wasn't sure how it'd turn out but I reckon this is better than a handycam by far...

I usually spend so much effort with tripods and keeping the camera still, but wide angle works a treat handheld. In fact due to the road conditions, even better than a mounting system.


cheers

Awesome...

That looks like an amazing place to ride - makes me want to go! I'm impressed you drove and shot w/ that camera; it's not exactly light.

YOU SIR ARE NUTS!!! But really good job. One solution that may work for you and is only about 100 bucks U.S. is a Bogen Magic arm. As soon as my lazy butt goes for a ride here in wintery N.C. I will test it on my Buell. I can tell you that it mounts up in a matter of minutes and is full adjustable and very secure feeling.
