Planning on doing the Transamerica trail again this year on a dirt bike from new england to Phoenix. This time around id like to do a better job capturing & sharing video & photos. Starting from scratch here, any ideas?

I have had a Hero 2 and a Hero 8. The hero 8 has more options and a little better in darker situations. I did find it a little hard to learn all the options. I always mounted mine under the visor of my motocross helmet. I loved that line of sight on the video, looked just like how I saw it riding.

Nice thanks man, my friend is recommending hero 9.. Can u take pics with a button or something? Would like to be able to stream it to host site as I ride so my old man can follow along.. In the past I've used a spot tracker n he would just follow the "breadcrumbs' to see where I'm at

Can't help with the video stuff, but have fun and post up when you get done.
Been on the (off) road for 2 weeks now, got a bunch of great pics the old fashioned way.. stop bike, remove phone from mount, switch from GPS to camera mode, snap pic, remount phone, restart bike & resume.. a chore for sure but so well worth it.. highlight? I decided to detour up to Vail from poncha springs on the off chance of meeting my hero James hetfield, didn't get that chance BUT while walking around Vail village looking like a weary transient with filthy dirt bike clothes I bumped into his son Castor (drummer for Bastardane) & wife Francesca. I introduced myself and we chatted for a few , such nice "normal" people it made my day & trip!

Hey, I remember when I am on a trip last time with my buddies we did so much fun we carries our fat tire bikes and ride too long on them. My friend carries a go pro and a fixed helmet he recorded all the fun on the camera. The go pro cam is too good when on a trip.
