Quick GoPro vid

This is my second video ive made with my new GoPro HD. I just got my new exhaust and power commander 3 installed last week and decided to take the bike out for a quick ride. I will admit the video is pretty boring, but if you have nothing better to do take a look and let me know what you think. I will have more to come. Im just starting to use iMovie. So I have a lot to still learn.

Re: Quick GoPro vid

You even said the video was boring and I still watched it. WTF is wrong with me. It's you riding around in straight lines. I saw you feelin groovy around 1:20 tho. Good for you throwin a little weaving in the mix there.

Find some twisties. Lose the top of the helmet gopro. That felt like the helmet was going to be pulled off my head when I rode like that.

DONT STOP IN THE OIL IN THE CENTER OF THE LANE. You should have approached that stop in the right tire area of the lane to stay off the oil drops at every busy intersection that are in the center. Then you rode across the oil even more to make your turn. If you didn't short shift and roll onto it so easy, you probably would spun that rear.

Also, you are obviously sitting straight up and down on the bike. When cornering, try to get your chest low, etc.

Keep enjoying the go pro and ride safe bro!

Thanks for the pointers. I honestly never thought anything of the oil spots. But I will get some better videos up. I did buy some other mounts and a suction cup mount, witch ill probably try on the tank and see how that works out.

Tether the camera to the bike if you use the suction cup mount. It's not to be trusted. I swore by it bro. For years it held me down. Then next thing you know, it falls off twice. NEver used it again.

Damn suction cup mount shakes like crazy whenever I've used it. Threw that thing in a storage bin and haven't seen it since.

If you don't use a suction cup mount how do you mount it? Adhesive? If you do that then how is it removed? And can't you only use it once?

Sorry for the newb questions. I'm trying to get my hands on a gopro before next season.
