After testing my Ghost HD drift in the car a few times, I felt that today was as good a day as ever to test the camera on the bike. I used the suction cup mount and secured it to the Ninja by the rear grab handle and just to be on the safe side, I cable tied it to the bike. The weather was pretty grim today, even snowing badly on the way home. Anyway, after about three minutes of London very bumpy and frankly shockingly badly surfaced roads, my Ghost jumped out of the cradle and went crashing to the floor.....at around 20mph. Before I knew what was happening, a courier on a scooter was beeping me and pulled up next to me at the lights. He handed me my camera, which was still in one piece, but now had a few battle scars to its outer shell. In the confusion of the moment and after thanking him profusely I forget to even get his name, so when I got home I checked the footage and found a partial logo on his jacket. Low and behold and after ten mins on the phone, I found out who the good samaritan was. I got the address of their office and I'll be sending out a small token of my gratitude. Its so rare these days, especially in London, to find somebody doing a good deed. If there were more people like Terry, this city and indeed this world would be a much better place. I hope Karma does him an equally large favour, this man really deserves it in my opinion.
My name is Matt Brown and I'm a UK journalist formerly based in London, but now calling the South of England home. I've been riding bikes since 2007, but got hooked straight away. Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
