    Does anyone have an opinion on whether or not it is bad for the camera to be carried on the back of a motorcycle. Vibration and such?

    Vibration is bad if it reaches the camera.
    Wrap it loosely in a foam pad or similar and that will damp the vibrations.
    Also, do not crash into large heavy objects - that will affect camera.

    If its an SLR I would be most concerned about the mirror mechanism. Having said that, is one long motorcycle trip really any worse than lots of car/plane miles?

    Also, I think this thread is a thinly veiled attempt to brag about your cool hog. :) It worked, so good job.

    it's a Honda Shadow. Chain is on the other side. Sucks to keep it lubed, shaft drive would be cool, but chains are kinda neat too
