That was great! As I found myself grinning during the whole video, now I have to ask this question: Does the grin you get from riding the HM ever subside?:D
I can't wait until I get one!

GoPros are cool and videos are the next best thing when weather or commitments wont let you get in some seat time.

I recommend anyone considering using one on the Hyper spend a few more dollars on the kit that includes the suction cup mount. No double sided tape is required and it can be mounted on the bike without leaving a mess.

It's only my opinion, but I just don't like the results from a helmet mount. We tend to keep our head level with the horizon and that reduces the viewers perception of lean angle. And too, I find darting head swivels annoying.

If your speaking of the pics, the camera was just above and to the left at the peak of the headlamp shroud. I thought I was shooting video when those were snapped.

If your refering to the video link just below my signature, here is where

Just thought I should append the last post. While parked roadside (thankfully) yesterday, the suction cup mount let go and tumbled to the ground. I had been lazy and not removed it for about three weeks. My confidence in this mount location has been shaken.

I had directional dyslexia in the post above. As your seated, the suction mount was above the headlamp and to the right on the painted shroud. There is only very slight contact with the lamp surface there. Maybe the slight air gap caused it to bail?

It looks as if you edited the part where you passed the slow car over the double yellow. :eek:
I just got a GoPro wide and shot about forty minutes on my 1098 yesterday. I made two passes on double yellow and was just thinking that if I posted the video I would get shit about it! One of the passes was just prior to the best corner on the road I was on, and trust me there aren't that many great corners near Houston! It's a big sweeping double-apex carousel right-hander, and after making my pass, just as I get through the first part there's a guy on a bicycle right in the middle of the second apex!
