Don't think I have any pics with a camera attached. This pic shows where a go-pro mount has been stuck to the side of the helmet. Half of a tether is connected to my bracket and taped to the helmet with gaffers tape to keep it from blowing in the wind.
The mount is that black thing next to the sleeve of my jacket.
Here's a closer look with the mount in a slightly different location. It was a bit too far back in this location.
Probably not a Mac commercial! But, my new addition HP Pavillion Touchsmart 11" Notebook PC works perfect with all GoPro requirements and then some. This is a perfect size for my GSA bags with its robust carry case I bought from Thule. Never having a touchscreen before, takes a bit of practice but NICE feature and so much faster overall. The price is down to under 400$ now at Best Buy, a WOW good deal. Family members are buying the newest addition GoPro's and I have much to learn, as they are evolving. IPhone friendly now and more....My older version is still working fine and produces first rate video I cannot complain. IF I had any compalint, it would be the time involved taking videos and camera time from my usual riding I used to do! I'm a high miler guy, riding long days, BUT find myself slowing down and enjoying the above more.
After reading here and other places i have decided to go with the Drift Ghost-S.
It's an updated camera with better low light and a Sony CCD.
It is about $100 more than the Ghost HD so I told the kids I would kick in whatever was over their budget.
So far I have opened a really cool box and made it so I can't get everything back in.
I will play with it when I get home tonight. It's a little bigger then I thought.
It has a zoom so the coverage can be changed.
I am thinking of writing a review of it for MOA magazine.
Spring is just too far off.... sigh.........
SO gave me a GoPro 3+ and now I'll have to upgrade one of my antique (5-8 yrs old) portables- the newer netbook sure won't do it.
Should have done it sooner anyway- bought a new SLR last year that uses the new fast cards and my old portables don't even like those.
Anybody else have either a Mac or PC recommendation? I use both and am partial to SSDs....
IMO Mac's are easier to use, connectivity to devices is easier and quicker, always buy the 3 yr apple extended service contract when buying- they have GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE for both H/W and S/W.
Mac are great for video editing and most everything else. Microsoft Word and Excel are superior, but that is about it, from my perspective.
If you are thinking mac laptops then think big. On the new macbook pro and macbook air with the retina display you can't upgrade anything after the fact. No extra RAM, no larger drive. So buy it with all the memory and internal disk space you think you will need. That being said, I'd get a mac. Just wanted you to know the downside. Some of the PC's are that way too. SSD is great for traveling since they don't have moving parts. Plus the speed is awesome.

FWIW I just received my GoPro directly from them. At $265 shipped I just couldn't resist.
These are open box/returns/refurbished units but to be perfectly honest, mine looked brand new. It comes with everything a new unit does including their new unit warranty. I haven't used it yet as I just got it the other day and I'm waiting for an SD card to arrive.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous.
It is however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence or stupidity.
