Joking aside, do you believe that a dashcam on a motorcycle is relevant? Considering one is riding with the flow of the traffic, and prefers to stay away from road rage?
I did have a couple of very close calls on a motorcycle (NYC baby, keeps you awake in traffic). If I were less fortunate, I probably would not have cared much for a dashcam footage (maybe in one instance). That said, a friend of mine t-boned a cab and it was recorded on multiple CCTV cameras in the area. Legally it probably helped, but a cracked skull is another matter altogether.
So should I get a motorcycle dashcam, a Wolo Bad Boy, or a beer and forget about it?
P.S. If you do have a dashcam on your beast, please share your experience.
