Anyone see the on-board footage using the gyroscopic cameras. They are really cool and gives such a better perspective of just how far the GP bikes lean.

No Juxt. I haven't seen it but from what I gather it's a camera that rolls to keep a flat plane when the bike leans (I think)

oh, I get it now!
That is awesome. It seems to take the camera a split second to correct itself when he stands the bike upright after a turn (or flicks it from right to left). That gives us an idea of how fast the bike is actually going from side to side.
Now, how do I rig one up to the postie???

That is indeed awesome. Sad (and a bit funny) to see he has to use a walking stick tho.
Huh? Lorenzo took a third place last year and he couldn't walk at all. He sat in a chair on the podium. Pretty much all of the greatest riders have spent time on crutches.

Thats incredible, its hard to credit the electronics until you see that sort of thing, changing gears like that under full lean without any sort of movement, that sort of throttle application at that lean, its insane :D

That camera is fantastic! It was really only a matter of time once they introduced HD cameras on the bikes...
And on that note, it occurred to me recently after watching some HD footage of all the bikes launching and barreling into the first turn that when 3D tv becomes commonplace, that sense of immersion will be incredible. Which lead me to realise that the best sports to watch in 3D will motorsports. Awesome!

I mean imagine what you've just seen in 3D!! It'll be mad.
