Probably can't follow directions or works for GoPro :shock: . Been using SJ cams since the SJ5. Nothing but praise for them. Can't beat the features for twice the price. Just ask MiWinger on how easy his GoPro Hero is to operate :mrgreen:

I just got a new GoPro Hero 6 Black -
I love it -
remote control through my phone app
Easy to use - waterproof in its own case -
High quality -
Anti-shake technology above and beyond anything you've ever seen
GPS enabled so you can over-law a speedometer (once you learn the software)
Not looking back ;)
Here is a video I made - notice the 1080P
This camera will go to 4K if I want
Segway Tour in Sedona a few weeks ago ;)

And one where I overlayed the Speedo - (still learning the program)

As bluethunder mentioned I had issues with using the phone app to control my Hero5Black. However the issue was most likely operator error as I am not real familiar with the camera. The video that I did get was very good quality. I am tech challenged but eventually I will get it.

OK, WHO DID IT??
My CC has been compromised...AGAIN!

Over the last two/three days there have been some charges on my CC mostly from Georgia but one from NY state also.
This happens every year or two. Discover ALWAYS is Great and removes the erroneous charges immediately, cancels my account and sends me new cards over-night! Ya can't ask for better service than that! I'm glad that it didn't happen while we were at Mineral Wells. It's a pain-in-the-butt when it happens while your on the road.

That’s too bad Larry. Sometimes I hate using a CC. All someone needs is the card number and the 3 digit security code and they can charge whatever they desire. With camera phones anyone who has your card for a couple minute can take 2 pictures and go on a charging spree.

Your right Al. What I like about Discover (besides the Cash-Back Bonus) is that they remove the fraud charge IMMEDIATELY even before they investigate. And they put the delivery of your new cards in the fast lane!

I know a few folks that are afraid to use a CC online... I have NEVER had a problem that resulted from using my card online. A couple of times though from employees inside the station after using my card for 'pay-at-the-pump' purchases. Other times my card was compromised I have no idea how/when. Usually on a trip though.

I just want to thank everyone who rode at the 2nd Annual Gathering for putting up with the only non-GoldWing, non-Honda, trike. I had a good time and hope to sneak in again next year. I gained quite a bit of knowledge about handling my trike in the twisties. Us old folks are slow learners.

Larry, it was a real pleasure meeting you. Your wisdom and comments brought a smile to my face. You are most welcome to join us for the 3rd Gathering... in fact, you better show up!!

I found a few hours yesterday to edit, render and upload some videos yesterday.

Here we are on Friday morning, through some fast sweepers on Route 78:





Friday afternoon we are back out onto Route 78:





Saturday after the gravel excursion and some lunch, we headed out onto Route 26:





Part way through the Route 26 ride, Larry (clem70), William (detdrbuzzard) and I split off and spent the next couple of hours on some crazy, twisty, narrow back roads:





Lastly, on Sunday, I decided that seeing as I was heading up that way anyway, I might as well ride the entire length of the Triple Nickel:





On the Triple Nickel video above...a couple more interesting bits:

55:15 - A side trip on a VERY poor condition road and then some gravel, for an emergency bio-break (no, that wasn't on camera). Yes, Goldwings can do dirt and gravel!
1:04:45 - Watch as I miss the turn and find myself no longer on 555...oops! :shock:

Enjoy! I know I did...

I agree with Jim, Great videos! Good job! And we did have fun riding these roads even though sometimes we got off course.

You guys finally convinced me. I just ordered the GoPro Hero 7 Black which will be released on Thursday. Should give me some really great videos.

You will LOVE that GoPro -
I have the Hero 6 Black

The GPS function nallows you to add speed and mapping to your videos --
Here is a quick video I shot from the train in Verde Canyon AZ a few weeks ago --
Notice the speedo - but the clarity and stabilization is as good as it gets --
