Eagle errands | New Camera!! And....... 4-08-09

Full Non-stop day:

- Reformatted home page for my ride and devised a system to pay for it now that I've lost my Main Sponsor (I will explain that in a subsequent post) I plan now to ask those of you tuned into to it to pay for a day on the road at $100 a day - see the 2009 Mayors' Ride page 
- Mounted a  video camera to my handlebars. Shown below, it helped me see how much vibration  I just take for granted when I ride this thing.....
- Bought a Casio EX-z150 point and shoot camera at Costco  for $130 with tax (charging the battery now). It is going to make for a huge difference in here. For example, Bob Sims, who I saw there is pictured below with the Peugeot I sold him. My new photo taking device will let you see the amazing restoration job that Bob did.... 
- Jeff Kitstler stopped by to install a new cotter pin that his friend Jim Thomson (pictured with me below) machined for  me out of stainless steel. Works perfect!!
