It's starting to clean up. The valves are singing again, engine is quieter, running cooler and gas mileage is up. I'll check the plugs in the morning when it's cooler. 115 today down here.:(

I bought [what appears to be] the same camera and mounting kit on Amazon last month; it was only $30. :)

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DMGDG2W
YDP-SPORT Real Sport Camera 4K Wifi HD DV 1080P 60FPS High Speed Underwater 2.0 Inches LCD Screen 170° Wide Angle WiFi Sports HD DV Action Camera for Bicycle Motorcycle Diving Car Recorder

Also picked up a pair of spare batteries and charger for $12.99:

www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FLXDVA6
VVHOOY 2 PCS 900mah Rechargeable Battery and Rapid Dual Charger for Action Camera (style 1)

(The price is now $10.88 but it won't be in stock until the 24th.)

I am going on my first longish ride tonight since the engine rebuild. Front sprocket is back on with loctite and torqued down correctly. Loose wire to the blinker fixed. Hoping for no wammies, but just in case I am putting my son on stand by with the truck and trailer. I am borrowing my daughters gopro camera, which is insanely more expensive than what you are using. Feel like I got ripped off when I bought that one! If I get lucky and everything works maybe I'll get to post some vids of the ride. I've been enjoying your vids Steve, keep up the good work!

Good luck on the ride. I use the cam for more than just riding. It comes in handy like this one.

Sounds like you got the better deal by about two dollars. :-)

I used it on a road trip a few weeks ago and the audio was a little buzzy. The mic worked fine indoors so I think the camera was vibrating inside the case. I''ll shim it and try it again.

Went out for a ride today with the GoPro for the first time. How did I do?

You did great until you picked up a cop.:( Liked to see the road though. I cringed seeing no gloves. When it's too hot I at least have a vest, boots and gloves. Did he write you up?:unsure:

He said he clocked me doing 80, but wrote me up for 60 in a 55 zone. Do you mount your cam on the handlebars?
