Went out this weekend on the XT225 to try my hand with an OLD GoPro Hero video camera. 1-st generation silver Hero unit.

Learned some good lessons.

Camera filmed in HD for 43 minutes then ran out of memory. That with a 4 GB SD card. Expect to get several hours out of 16 or 32 GB card.

Place the camera higher up on my chest for a better view

Wrap a rubber band around the camera as shortly after the last water crossing when I hit a good bump the camera rotated down to film the gas tank.

Try to reach the shutter control to turn it on/off while riding.

Using IMovies was not the easiest video tool around.

Looking forward to capturing some videos in the dirt!

You and your old GoPro Hero created a fun ride along with your short video for the rest of us to enjoy, JP. Thanks for taking us along. Nice area to ride in. Keep 'em coming!..

I'm envious! No riding opportunities for me in the dead of winter here in Minnesnowta! Keep 'em coming.

No heavy snow right now. More said to be on the way. But it's witch's t!ts cold and the trails are sloppy with mud, so the bike stays in the shed till things warm a bit. Nice to see video of places where riding can really be enjoyed this time of year!..

Nice day for a ride. We're about to float away here. Nearly 5 inches of rain in the last 3 days. Supposed to get cold and then rain more next week. Yay. Some folks are having serious flooding.

Best wishes on the flooding.

We could use some more rain although 5 inches in 3 days would bring about near Armageddon in some parts of California I'd be willing to take my chances.

the max I've seen in a while was 6 1/2 inches in a 24-hour period. Made a mess in our back yard. Fortunately we had three or four days of nice sunshine before the next storm came in. Did drop a good foot of snow on my nearby mountain top but the trail were closed to everything but hikers and bicyclists.
