How's the vibration on the headlight mount? I do a lot of offroading and have been wanting to use that angle, but fear that most footage will be useless due to vibration from the bumps.

Sure you want to locate the cam close as possible to the center of gravity to avoid surface bumps and engine vibes, but that means a bit low for my taste. To compensate, I softened the fork as much as I could.

2 short examples here, on & off pavement

Another disturbing factor than vibes and bumps is some kind of stuttering, mainly noticable on the screen sides

This is caused by 1) the motorcycle (speed and suspensions), 2) the angle of view and 3) the frame rate.

To get usable captures, 1) SLOW down your rides or SOFTEN your suspensions, 2) set up cam at MEDIUM Angle (to avoid crazy img speed on the sides and 3) set your FPS at max (60fps here)

Hope it helps
