Idiot Move Demands a Go Pro Upgrade

I was always jealous of how other cyclists videos look much better than mine.  Their videos always looked smoother, and it didn’t shake too much.  So I decided to Velcro the camera tightly to my handlebar stem.

For the most part, it was pretty successful.  It looked a lot smoother than most of my previous videos, especially those that were on tough terrain.

Then, I took the camera on my Jamison Creek ride, and all was fine, until I descended Hwy 9, then veered a little too close to the rumble strip, and it knocked my camera off.  It took me a while to retrieve my camera (and lucky it landed on the shoulder, and no one ran over it).  After retrieving it, I remounted it on my stem, but later when I descended Pierce, it fell again.  This time, the back broke.

Ah damn. So much for that camera. I guess it is as good a time as any for an upgrade.

So off I went to Best Buy, and getting the Go Pro Hero 3 White. I like whole small it got, and has wifi and has do many different types of mounts. Can’t wait to try it out.
