    What does everyone think? It is also my first time using Final Cut Pro X, so just getting hang of!

    Nice video! I like the little digital thing on the right handle bar.

    You should fix the camera to the side of the wheel! :)

    Thanks, the digital thing is for my heated grips, still a bit chilly in UK right now! Going to look in to a suction cup at some point to stick on wheel for more angles too!

    Nice.

    I frickin love GoPro's....so many useful & cool scenarios they can be used in. A friend of mine got backed into by an SUV while on his bike which damaged both the SUV and the bike. The driver tried saying it was his fault, but the GoPro said otherwise :D

    Nicely done. I'm a new GoPro user myself. Can I ask what post processing workflow you are finding best for your videos? Do you use the GoPro video app to edit your files before pulling them into Final Cut?

    Thanks mate, I just set Final Cut as the default program via image capture and then edit direct from there. I found the GoPro app slow and clunky. :)

    Gotcha. I don't have Final Cut so at this point, so I've only got iMovie available to me. I've read that the native GoPro files cannot be edited in iMovie so you have to convert them first. I've not done a lot of editing just yet as mainly I'm just capturing and archiving while I research what I think will work best for my set up. I know I've got a lot to learn. All the best with your future GoPro endeavors. Have fun using it.

    The files from the go pro are .mp4, but highly compressed, so it's best to convert to .avi to release some of the compression, making them look a ton better.

    What do you use to convert them?

    Excellent quality, entertaining, and nicely shot. I say well done!

    Everyone's driving on the wrong side of the road, though. But I guess that's because you mirrored the video or something. :p

    I use go pro studio because that's what's recommended by go pro although I'm sure other programs would work.
