Mount Palomar off road

I am thinking this is a good forum for vids, too. I vlogged a ride in the Palomar Mountain area of San Diego:

Hey, nicely put together
The sound quality is quite good for a helmet cam vid! The big GS windshield must help, but It sounds like you've got an external mic in the helmet? How do you have it set-up?

Thanks. The big windshield does help. But I get good audio on my X Challenge, too. I have a Contour HD camera that I modded. The Contour is the WORST when it comes to wind noise. So I pulled the mic out of the camera (there are a few places on the web that show you how to do it...and void your warranty) and wired an external mic in my helmet. There are a couple newer cams that have external mic plugs on them. Vio and Drift do, maybe there are others.

Ah, cool! Dr.Rock (of Mobius Trip ADVfame) does the same thing.

Yes, off highway 76, Nate Harrison Grade Road. Leads you to S7, a great roadhouse, and all the other twisties on the mountain.

Yeah, after minute 4 the riding gets a little more interesting and the scenery and terrain is really nice.
