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.
fendermustanglt25_180.jpg I already have a small guitar amp, the crate gtx15 that has some dsp effects.
But this fender mustang lt25 is getting good reviews, is ridiculously cheap, looks good, and even has amp modelling.
No eq control on mid (although you can tweak it through edit controls).
Should I really spend the money.
garagedoor1_180.jpg The old garage door is looking tatty.
It would be nice to have something bright and new.
But do I want canopy, retractable, automation, insulation.
Should I really spend the money, when the original is working well.
