Here we go, time to resurrect, this thread again ;)
the last video was posted in July last year so it's about time !!
Well I invested in a go pro chest harness, so here is a video recorded with the chest mount
sorry about the creaking/ flapping noise, I think it must be either the creaking of my leather jacket or my back pack straps flapping around :huh:
Oh, and ignore the time on the handlebar mounted clock ( dead battery ), actual time was around 8:30 am

...and THAT one is about as erotic as it gets! ;)
Best ride ever taken? The last one. I live for the next.

Here is a video of part of my ride yesterday, I was really just experimenting with the chest mount and a rear facing low level mount
the trouble is, that around the area where I live ALL the roads look the same :( .... No 14,000 feet elevation around here radare, sorry folks

Well... it's been just over a year since my last video, so I thought it was time for another ;)
Here are a few highlights from my ride on Sunday, I mounted the Go Pro on the left hand engine casing and had it hanging down low, as I wanted to get a real sense of speed :) ( a little too low as it happens, it grounded out at 1:38 :???: )

Interesting vantage point, Mikee. Nice video, too. Did your case take any damage when it brushed the asphalt?

I'm always trying to think of new ways to mount the camera Radare, the problem is all the Roads look the same around here, so a different camera angle helps to make the video less "same old roads" if that makes sense :???:
The Go Pro was hanging upside down, so it caused a little scrape to the locking mechanism of the case... no biggy :)
I didn't realise that it had grounded until I watched the video, I knew it was low and was riding "steadily" but that corner was a little sharper than I had anticipated, so I had to lean a little more... ooops :oops:

Hey Folks
Time for another video, this time I tried my hand at a "Short Film"
I used some old footage from the past few years..... and I shot some new footage for the intro and outro
I think it came out OK, I only had "Windows Movie Maker" to edit the vid and its fairly limited to what it can do ( but it is free...lol )
