Just uploaded this video to youtube. Would appreciate any thoughts and feedback before I mention it elsewhere.

Please let me know if I've made any boobs with it (first video I've done) and I'm a newbie to youtube. My signature link in the text box gets broken (because it's too long?) - don't know how to fix that.

Enjoy u k fl ag But not too much mickey taking as I had my poshest telephone squeaking voice on :53

I like it, but I think you're showing off a wee bitty with the cycle speedo and the other one showing the exact same speeds! By the way, I think you can fling Cubbie's speedo back up north if you're fed up with it, then I can make a shelf for it in my new shed monkey :209

Thanks Kawa :39

Will let you know when the Cub speedo is in the post GBC.

No showing off honest. You really can get them that accurate. In fact, calibrating a speedo yourself to the bike it's going to be used on, you can get a more accurate reading than paid for repairs.

Many thanks for the feedback all :150
