    Very nice! I really like my GoPro Hero 2 also. Here is my latest from Saturday morning's MTB ride.

    Great video of a great trail. You're inspiring me to rebuild my MTB.

    The handlebar mount was purchased separately. I also purchased a chest mount. I'll post a video I made using it shortly.
    The camera included a head strap mount and several adhesive backed mounts.

    Last Monday morning, I had one of those delivery spots in Chicago that nightmares are caused by.
    7:30 am delivery appointment to an old facility on the edge of a residential zone, on a very busy 2 lane street with bicycle lanes and parking on both sides. I had to back in off the street with no more than inches to spare between the parked cars, and a narrow alley to put my 53' wagon into. The alley was not deep enough to accommodate the whole unit either, so when I was tight against the dock, I was blocking the bike lane, and a portion of the travel lane.
    Now that is stressful. There was a huge amount of bike traffic as well, so I was not too popular with a lot of cyclists that morning.
    I bet.

    The Camera is the Hero2 Outdoor Edition. The difference between the Outdoor and the Motorsports and Surf Editions is the mounting accessories that are included in the box. Also, the surf edition comes with a float on the back door.

    This is the handlebar mount I bought.

    There are aftermarket mounts available that were referenced earlier.

    +1 for giving the trucks a break when you can, those men and women have a tough enough job as it is, without being an ass towards them. The truckers I know are usually the first to stop for an accident or to assist someone. Try doing without the goods we get from truck delivery, your N+1 included, and see how far you can get. Thanks Dan!

    You lose the GPS data if you do any video editing, but it shows up on the Contour site.
    The GPS info is embedded into the video and Contour gets the map insert right from Google.
    If I make an event video I usually put in music and titles and things... haven't done that with Contour video yet.
    But here's a clip of the turkeys:

    Here's a video I made using the chest strap. The drivetrain noise is almost unnoticeable, but there is an intermittent tapping which I tracked down to the camera case hitting the chest strap buckle. Tightening the mount made that go away.
    The video is so crisp, you can read the speedometer.

    Dan,

    Thanks for telling us about your new camera and for posting the videos. Boy, you are right, that camera produces very crisp videos. It is amazing the technology they can package in such small packages.

    OK, one more just to show how it picks up speech. I was passed by a roadie, dressed in team kit from the shop I worked at this spring, but I didn't recognize him. We had a bit of vebal interaction.

    How is that right bar end shifter mounted on your grip?

    Well, they started out as bullhorns, but now that they are cut back, I call them steerhorns.
