Good to hear Old Fart, he'll be good to go in a couple of months! Now if I could just be good to go

Yeah - it would work well. Can you tell me more about your helmet cam setup? Which helmet are you using and how do you have your cam mounted to the helmet? I might give that a try. I do have a Contour 1080 HD helmet cam as well.

Hey Mike, I'm using my HJC motocross helmet for sledding. Have the Go Pro mount setup on the jaw of the helmet. I made my own mount that takes a flat Go Pro sticky mount and then the regular Go Pro system clicks in. Works well, better view instead of the visor view or side of the helmet view. Only broke it off once when I endo'd and face plated If there's no visor view in my youtube videos when I'm riding, then the Go Pro's mounted on the jaw. It also saves it from getting whacked off in the bush! You can use any helmet, snowboarding, climbing, etc., and just customize it with the add on extension brackets to put the cam anywhere on the helmet you want. I'm using the original Go Pro...imagine what I could do with the Gen 3 Go Pro ...if I could only afford it

i find attaching the gopro under the visor an even better view, its close to the eyes, you can still see out, and can see the pretty flashing lights on the camera.
a guy on youtube named "mototrippin" uses this setup, so do i and i like it :)

found this random picture on photobucket, sorry that its so big

Adventure. Explore. Discover.


Farting with a stomach ache is the scary part.

qwiky, I have seen that mount. Don't think it would work for me though, too distracting when I race as that's the view that I need clear. Most of the time head is down and eyes up forward so I would be going crosseyed with that mount.

This is what I use


When you get old like me...you need bigger photos
