Default Pentax K-7 test mounted to my motorcycle

I received a motorcycle camera mount for my Kawasaki ZX-11 from Sportbikecam.com and tested my K-7 with it.

First HD video test Pentax K-7 with 6.5mm Opteka Fisheye mounted to my Kawasaki ZX-11 motorcycle:

@35 seconds into the following video you will see why I did not exceed the speed limit.

Joe,

Great video..I'm impressed. The fisheye lens gives the right atmosphere of what it's like to ride a motorcycle.

I'm also a motorcyclist...have an old Matchless 750 scrambler G15CS and a '78 Yamaha SR 500...your video captures the feeling and freedom felt when riding a motorcycle.

Joe,

Thanks, I enjoyed and appreciated that video and your efforts to find it and post it.

My Matchless was also red, still is, but unfortunately it was spray painted (spray can) somewhere in the past and needs a complete paint job.

The guy in the video did a wonderful job restoring his old Matchless.
