Yes, I did watch your video. Wow, what cars. Anyway, I digress.

I have tried my GPH4S on the chin, on the top, on the right and on the rear with the same wind interference. I just edit the video to include good audible sound when it's there and mask the rest with music. I know that's the lazy mans out.

As for the high speeds, I am older so I am sort of over that part. So, would you care to share what is it that you do to abate the wind noise? (PS is that an R1 you're riding?)

As for my latest video, seven of my friends met in Maggie Valley, NC. for a week of street and gravel riding. We came here to ride the storied "Tail of the Dragon and parts of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Enjoy

If the measure of truth were to be measured by how many ppl believe it. The earth would still be flat, and donald will be a great president. That isn't to say that you're opinion is completely wrong. Granted, at 65 mph, drag isnt much of an issue, but double that speed and you'd be better off attaching the camera on a bobble head.

Thanks & Good eye!, its an 04 R1.

Ive found the following method to be very successful in dealing with wind noise, and easy to implement.

Thanks,

I've got one of those (similar) but my riding is mixed gravel and tarmac. Using the skeleton door usually isn't an option for me. However, I should have remembered that door for the above trip.




Cheers,
Charlie

I have done more filming from helmet on my sled than my bike. My motorcycle riding is pretty uneventful. But the biggest reason I mount it on top of my head is so that I can turn it on and off with either hand.


I have the WiFi remote, but the battery in the remote and the drain on the cam does not allow that cam to sit in standby mode till lunch break when I can swap the batteries. I can hear the beeps through my helmet, so powering it and operating the shutter is a non issue.


On the wildcat, that's a different story. our helmets are inside a roll cage, so helmet mounts on top are out of the question. We use a side mount then, or mount them to the wildcat itself (hood or rollcage)


I do have to say the chin mount is pretty cool. That would be worth trying.

Another big benefit of the chin mount is you can visually check if the gopro is recording (top blinker).

The problem with the chin mount is, if your bike has a windscreen you have to view the video through it. On the other hand I think it's a great locationif you are on an enduro, dirt bike or sports bike without a windscreen.

But, for dual sporting and most street riding I think it is a bad option. One distinct advantage is that you don't need to have a remote to toggle the camera on an off. Just my two cents.




Cheers,
Charlie

I have a Hero Session I use with a chin mount. Since my helmet is a Shoei RF-1200, there is no flat spot on the chin, so I had to offset the mount a little bit and use a few extensions to center it. Make sure you point it towards the sky a little bit to compensate for leaning forward.
