coming 1 day maybe

ducatisportdiscbrake1c_180.jpg New road bike.
It would be nice to have something lighter.
I was looking at bianchi.
They have a ducati range.
Innovvk2c_180.jpg A dash cam for the bike.
Looking at the innovv k2, with cameras front and rear, gps, but the microphone is internal only (sounds terrible), and rather heavy.
Also, the hd video seems very low bit rate or compressed too much.
Is there enough space to fit it?
insta3601r1_180.jpg Or do I want an action cam?
Most seem to capture travels with a gopro.
But more recently insta360 1 r seems to be taking over.
Not sure I have any use for 360 (actually 4π as a solid angle).
Still rather fabulously expensive, and memory cost too.
And now there is the dji osmo action.
dustystringsravenna26_180.jpg Harp, maybe the dusty strings ravenna 26, or should I go for the extra bass strings on the ravenna 34, possibly from morley harps.
Fabulously expensive, takes up a lot of space, not chromatic (except by moving levers), and probably needs a lot of tuning.
lagt70d1_180.jpg lag acoustic guitar. Had a go on a t300d in noiseworks in september 2014. A lovely creation in wood. Nice dark metalwork. Very french.
Or do I want a cutaway, with electric output?
They also do ukuleles.
It now seems the t300d is discontinued.
The nature versions look nice, maybe the t70d.
martindx2e12_180.jpg martin 12 string.
I was looking at the 12 string version of the lovely dx1ae that I already have.
It now seems that the dx12x1ae is discontinued, or rather replaced by the dx2e12.
Rather fabulously expensive.
