    Hi Craig,
    Would you care to share your set up, camera, bluetooth helmet headset? Do I have it right that you are commentating your ride straight into helmet headset?How do you have it all connected up, maps on the phone but also a GPS, & is the other thing a UHF radio?
    Interesting setup!
    I've started watching & love it so far - looking forward to watching each one.
    Thanks for the effort to record & share.

    I’m curious about this as well. My GoPro doesn’t have that capability.

    Outstanding ride report and production quality. I enjoyed all of it. Cheers!

    I noticed at one point that his GoPro had a microphone adapter poking out of the case, with some sort of putty around the cord to keep the water out of the GoPro case. I use a very similar setup on my GoPro (fully waterproof case that I drilled a hole into, not the GoPro skeleton housing), and it allows me to use to any mic with a 3.5mm jack on the end.

    I saw this setup on some youtube channels. I took my GoPro out for a ride today in the skeleton housing and I was surprised how much engine noise it picked up. Would need a microphone to do commentary though. Guess I'll pony up the cash for the parts.

    I plan on doing a video on my gear when I get some time. I was running a GoPro 5 which was mic'ed up into my helmet. I also had a Sena S20 which was hooked up to the UHF radio (unitl I lost it) which allowed me to talk to truckers, other adventurers and my mates. I used my phone as the primary navigational device using Hema maps. It was really good. I also had my hand held Garmin 64s GPS as a back up.
    Hope this helps mate. Cheers

    Hey Hollywood, yes its a GoPro 5 with a mic hooked up to it. I had to purchase the mic adaptor which is velcro'ed to the side of the helmet. I plan on doing a full review of all my gear. Cheers

    Hey BLucare, I run a GoPro 5 with the mic adaptor on the side. Nice observation on the putty. Its actually Blutac to keep the dust and water out of the connection point. When you plug in the adaptor you have to remove the side panel which exposes the sockets. Worked pretty well actually. Cheers mate

    Great ride and video Shadower. Just watched the one on Googs track and your on bike narration really brings out the track quality and difficulty. The heavy breathing sounds really adds realism to how much effort it makes to ride those kind of track - even though you generally made it look easy!!!
    I'm usually hyperventilating when I get on anything like that and I certainly cannot talk like you do - all cool, calm and collected.:lol3
    Anyway, great work mate and happy trails.
