Has your behaviour turned over night? Into a saint or someone seeking out conflict!;)

I'm sometimes tempted by them but actually viewing them makes me feel sick, don't know why a sort of motion sickness, depends on where they are mounted and how much they bob up and down. So I would only ever look at them if something really bad occurred, not for minor things the sort that are forgotten a couple of roads later.

Nope, I can't honestly say it modified my behavior, except that I rode it a little more gently as the mount kept slipping on every bump! (now sorted with the aid of some sandpaper)
I did have a go with one before, but it wasn't much cop and I quickly got bored with keep charging the thing and deleting all the video. And I strongly suspect this one will go the same way!
I must admit though, I did feel a little bit of the "do you feel lucky punk, well, do you?" mentality creeping in last time I used one for some odd reason, but not this morning.

I also hope you don't have any nasty situations to report but you can also post interesting happenings (not including cars) that could be of interest on the Forum.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did put up a brief video before of my old commute, carving through the North downs, middle of nowhere, birds singing and frost on the ground :smile:
Sadly my new commute is far less scenic, but there might be some nice early morning views over the marshes in the Summer

Out of interest, with a 32g micro sd card, how long can you record on a go-pro ?
Sorry, I have absolutely no idea! this link would suggest 4-8 Hours.
Mine isn't a go-pro, but will have similar image sizes. I know that when I looked into it, one 32GB card would exceed the capacity of 2 batteries (about 3 Hours) so I didn't need to research it any further than that.

I noticed when I got my go-pro lookiy-likey that taxi drivers behaved better, but there were a couple of youths that gave me a bit of grief on account of it once or twice.
When my go pro went kaput I got a bullet style one, that looks like a light. Thats not working either now! As the old saying goes - buy cheap, buy twice (or three times in my case).
The fly6 I bught is fab. Will geta front facing one eventually.
