I have used these with great effect although the actual security tethers are a bit short,

I have found a security tether which has a snap together connection easier to work with changing it between locations in this kit.

the outlay initially was a lot but I think I have all links/arms/mounts needed to mount it pretty much anywhere on my bike.

After a couple of minor camera adjustments I managed a successful tryout.

Not only am I learning how to use a new camera but the Cyberlink video editing software that came with the new PC. I wasn't sure if I should use 720p or 1080p for the upload but I find when I download 720p from You Tube the quality is lacking for viewing on a 1080p desktop so I went with the 1080.

Thanks.....the only down side is the wind noise.......and I'm not used to a cam on my helmet. I've ordered a couple more sticky mounts for alternative shots from the bike and trailer.....

But the upside is that the bike sounds good - and you are riding on the correct side of the road.

You'll need to create some windsock, maybe a piece of adhesive foam window seal...

Not only am I learning how to use a new camera but the Cyberlink video editing software that came with the new PC.

You'll like the Cyberlink PowerDirector...
Its the only reasonable priced video editing software that full supports multi-core machines with 64 BIT OS and >4GB RAM... on my i7 @ 8GB RAM it renders + burns(!) a ~70 minute film on DVD in like 55 minutes; including DVD menu/background/music, sub/titles, cross-fades, animated stills, chapter markings, sound/music edits, etc...
The storyboard visualisation makes it really versatile and intuitive to use...

Its still a time consuming process though...

Or maybe just a piece of tape over the mike hole........

I did try the GoPro editor on a couple of clips but it still needs to convert the raw camera file before you can do anything with it where as Power Director didn't need to do that. I did have earlier version of Power Director on my previous PC and only used it for making CDs. I'll have to play around with the DVD side of things as I've only used Windows DVD maker before.
