Impressive one-handed riding (the bike being an LC8 notwithstanding of course).
Still regretting selling my Go!!!!!!!
Two questions however:
- were you using the POV bulletcam clamped to your finger?
- does your bike have a steering damper?
Thanks DakarBlues !

I shot these vids holding this camera in my hand. You can see it briefly in my rearview mirror shot in the first video.
Photobucket


You can see the strap in a some of this video as well.



As to the steering damper question, your sure as hell right I do. On high speed dirt, that makes the difference between a great video and a yard sale in the rubarb

Any guidance, words of wisdom or pics would be greatly appreciated.......
centre stand should come as standard?

Hey DakarBlues,

Keen eye ! Yeah at the 3:14 mark I had both hands off of the bars to shoot the thumbs up shot. I do not use any type of cruise control, I'm not a big fan. The bike just reduced speed on its own while the right hand was giving the thumbs up. Trust me it wasn't no handed for that long, no biggies .

Fit with a Helmet strap hold


...and then secured with tape. Im sure you got the strap when you bought your GoPro.


Few days ago I bought a Roll Bar Mount.




Here is more mounts with the strap

On the swing



...and on the sidecase holder. Doesnt it look like Im riding a custombike?!?
