GoPro Hero helmet Mounted Cam Video

Random clips on the way up to Laguna Seca a couple weeks ago. If it doesn't play after hitting the "Play" button, just click a couple times at the beginning of the playbar at the bottom and it'll start...Not sure why it does that!

You were still maintaining considerable speed on dirt road, what tires are you using.

Nice video and many thanks for sharing.

Does anyone else have any video or pictures from a GoPro camera to share? I just ordered one and am currious.
Tenover- do you ever mount the camera straight to the bike? If so where?

I have not mounted it to the bike. I temporarily put some mounts on the windshield, upper right fairing and fender with the bike on, before the trip, and it just seemed like it was vibrating too much.

I have some vids with a GoPro mounted to the front of my FJR1300. Just look at my signature in this post and the link will take you there. The GoPro is a great little camera and being waterproof makes it great for bad weather vids (see Stormy Ride). The Stormy Ride was taken from the front of a Buell Blast which vibrates like crazy until she gets up to speed, then smooths out. Important to find a good, vibration free, mounting point on the bike. Some are using Helmet mount but I like to go with windshield.
Hope you enjoy the vids!

Take a look through this thread, there are a few photos. I myself am not impressed with it...too much fisheye distortion in the photos...
