Here is a GREAT example of Gyroscopic Precession!  
Thanks Mr. Herbert (NightFlyyer)!!! 
(note: though Mr. Herbert does incorrectly attribute the precession of the bicycle wheel to the earth's rotation, and though he also incorrectly attributes gravity to the earth's rotation [he was confusing gravity with *artificial* gravity], he did nevertheless make an excellent demo video of gyroscopic precession!)

Also, the video to the right is another EXCELLENT example of Gyroscopic Precession!
