Default New vid camera for christmas

My wife got me this camera and now the trick is to work it out which seems okay but where to mount it is more my concern. Not keen on sticking it on the helmet for a big trip away on versys in just over two weeks but may look to go back to the shop it was brought from and buy something for mounting to bars or i could just find a good place to stick the base to on bike.

Saw a demo in the bike shop the other day. Looked very clear and better price than my GoPro. I stick the GoPro on the front of my Hard Bags (Pelican Style) and it seems to work pretty well without a bunch of vibration.
So, we are going to see some New Zealand vids now. Cool!

It uses the same mounts as the GoPro. When i had my GoPro i had a mount on the Givi and one on my topcase for rear shots.

You guys are in for a real treat as my big trip away for 9 days in Jan with 5 other riders may have at least one other vid camera, so we should get some good vid's and there are two versys on the trip.

Looking forward to it! Sounds like a great trip. I wish to ride New Zealand one day but first I need to go to Hawaii and ride, as my son n law is stationed there. I want to visit my daughter and grandaughters. Only 14 hours away from Florida.

Heck 14 hrs, it less than a 11 hr flight from Christchurch NZ to KL Malaysia and i thought that was long.
