First GoPro vid

Some footage from an outing this weekend. Turn down the sound, I haven't been able to add any music yet. The first 5 min are kinda boring, it takes a while to get to the turns. I'd skip to there

It's no Nd4 socal vid, remember I'm in Texas, we had to run the same road back and forth for these 3-4 corners lol.

The one decent road we have in the area was all cop'd up so we went here instead.

This angle is with the gopro on my helmet, flipped upside down toward my shoulder, which I liked better than having my visor take up half the shot when it was facing up.

My god man, did you guys really turn around to do that sweeper again at 6 mins? Haha had to poke fun because of the Socal comparison

That's a nice angle with controls, part of the helmet for perspective, and a good portion of the road. Is the camera noticeably heavier with the mounting arms? I've always thought a hardcase backpack or tailbag would be a cool angle with an arm going up and back.

Haha yeah, there were 4 or so sweepers pretty far apart. The road we normally run is pretty decent, but the local po po is on it...because of idiots mainly. I really gotta get to the hill country outside of San Antonio, supposed to be really good rides out there. I had some good footage from my ride with Morgstang, that was a lot better, but I accidently deleted it

When it's facing down like that I notice the weight and wind more for some reason, but you can definitely feel the weight. It's not that bad, but you can feel it. I'm going to get the suction cup so I can get some more interesting mount points. I really want a mount low on the side fairing looking up at me.

Depending on the shape of the windscreen or front fairing of the VFR, you can get a cool shot facing back with a suction mount from there. As long as the cup is making good contact on the surface, it isn't coming off from just wind.

I want to try a windscreen just to have that mounting option.

haha yeah I was so pissed when I got home and found out I deleted the best part of the vid of our ride.

I'll still upload what I have tonight, and send you the link.
