Trip down the side of Loch Ness in Scotland
« on: 2014-07-17 00:29:06 »
Decided to treat myself to a GoPro camera after my recent purchase of my K1600GT.
Four friends and myself had a three day trip around the Scottish Highlands in June and this was the run down the side of Loch Ness to Fort Augustus.
Still getting used to the GoPro but the results didn't turn out too badly.


This is the YouTube link.

    Nice video and fantastic scenery. What model GoPro did you go for?

    I had tried my son's GoPro 2(?) and liked it. But thought, if I'm buying one I'll go for the 3+.
    It has 12 instead of 5 mp and wifi along with a few additional features. Bit smaller and lighter, too.
    You can link it to an iPhone app which allows you to access all the settings on the camera.
    Let's the phone act as a viewfinder as well. Handy if you are trying to aim it when on the side of your helmet.
    Thought it would be nice to have some footage in the dark winter evenings.

      This is a link to a few videos that I have done in the last year, the RAT club (Riders At Triumph) was a run to Fortwilliam in April, there was 108 bikes of all sorts.  It will give you a few ideas of mounting the gopro on the handlebars and on the engine bars.  I did'nt have the gopro for the Horizon trip last year to the Alps, but I will have it for the next European trip starting on Saturday.

      Nice video, David. Although I think that I got the warmer weather.
      Might try Vimeo. Seems to have a better quality playback than YouTube.
      What mount did you use and was it a GoPro?

        I use a ram mount on the handlebar and one the engine guards, check out my comments on overheating that I experienced in Europe this year, you need to be aware of it.
