If it was allowed I would run front and rear facing cameras ala Key, but cameras are not allowed on the premises where I work.
but they are allowed on public roads! Just put them away at work.
Forensics.  Laid up in the hospital, wishing you had installed them is no way to live.  Besides, you get a video replay for free at home, sipping your favorite beverage.   Cool

Okay, they're not allowed on the premises, but for the open road, they're becoming as necessary as a bell/AirZound on the MUP of WRL.

Run a rear facing camera, and if it happens again, file charges with the local PD, as that is assault, I believe.

Hear, hear!! Smiley

Amarillo to Shamrock
9/22/17
Day 13, Pac Tour Southern Transcon: Today, our last full day in Texas, we rode 93 miles. We mostly had a crosswind. The ride today wasn't as easy as yesterday, but it was still an easy day, despite the crosswind. In the span of 93 miles, we watched the landscape change from a flat, treeless plain to rolling hills with abundant trees. Our lunch stop was in McLean and while there, we visited the Barbed Wire Museum. That was all about barbed wire and many other things - very interesting. Wished I'd had more time. Climbing was about 1200 feet today. That number will grow as we traverse Oklahoma.

Zero dogs on a "Kenny country ride". That's a rarity. I know you're disappointed.  Cheesy

Been getting a lot of seat time on my Aero trike, so for a change of pace brought my M5 mid racer to yesterday's Clown ride. Since it's a light, aero, carbon bike thought I might ride at least 2 laps with the fast group. Didn't happen, because my heart decided its rate was going to pretty much stay in the 70's (Average for 55.4 miles of riding was 75 bpm. Average speed was 13 mph.). Rode my first 3 lake laps mostly with Kenny J and Tim L. Craig B and Butch Y rode some of the laps with us. The 3rd lap included a side trip up the White Rock Creek Trail to the Tennis Center for ice cream and conversation. Craig, Butch, and I elected to return to Sunset Bay via the Clownwise lake trail route to get in a full lake lap. While we're climbing the steep hill at the dam, I'm spinning like crazy at 12 mph, gaining on Craig (riding his VTX trke), when Butch comes flying past both of us on his 20-year old, heavy, USS Vision R-45, totally humiliating Craig and I. He normally doesn't ride like that. Don't know what got into him.  Cheesy  After everyone else left the lake, I did 2 more laps, then called it a day.
