|The wireless back-pack|
|Remote and "key"|
I had read of people having issues getting their back-packs and remotes to work with their cameras but I followed the instructions and updated the firmware on my camera and both the back-pack and remote and as soon as I snapped the back-pack on I was able to turn the camera on and take some pics by using the remote.

Then when you need to film you turn on the remote and a few seconds later it connects to the back-pack and turns the camera on. You can then change the shooting mode if you want or just starts recording/snapping. I have noticed that there is a bit of a delay between pressing the buttons on the remote and stuff happening on the camera so you probably won't be able to quickly snap off a shot of something in a hurry.
One little annoying thing is that now I have three items that need charging by usb. The back-pack and camera use a standard mini-usb cable but the remote has a weird setup (so that it remains waterproof). I guess we'll see how much of a pain this turns out to be...
Anyway, the next item on the agenda was to work out where to put the remote on the bikes (so far only the Connie is sorted). The remote comes with the attachment key (top pic) and a wrist strap. The key allows you to hook it onto a keyring or use it for attaching a tether etc. The wrist strap can also be used for wrapping around "things" like ya wrist or the handlebars etc.
But I had a Projekt D Handy Stick lying around and decided to give that a go.
First up I had to take the bolt out that holds the left-hand side handle-bar on. Man, what a mission - Kawasaki must own shares in lock-tite!
