GoPro and Wind Noise Reduction

This video was taken using the GoPro Hero camera. Video I’m more than satisfied with but the wind noise above walking speed is horrible. It really makes the damn thing useless as hearing the engine is the best part of it all.
I’ll post different ideas for reducing the problem with sample videos to give you an idea of the results.
1. Waterproof case with full back plate. Straight out of the box.

2.¬†Waterproof case with full back plate. Used 2 small rectangles of self adhesive Velcro (female side) and covered both mics. Requires much more volume on playback but at least you don’t get noise. I think the backing is just too thick. I’ve got some other ideas that I think may work well.

3. Waterproof case with full back plate. Used 2 small rectangles of Velcro (female side) and covered both mics slipping it in between the camera and the housing. Used three 3/8 vacuum plugs to cover the switch buttons. Results? You decide but I’m not happy yet.

Sunday Ride on the Ulysses

I started out on the Thumper but had to abort at around 9 am. It wasn’t raining but it was so foggy it might as well have been. Something was getting wet that didn’t want to be and she wasn’t liking it. Dropped her back off and took out the Uly. I noticed at the gas station I was 112 miles from 46,000. Well that set today’s ride length.
I wound up taking the long way to Al’s Dockside in Tavare’s, had a cup of coffee and split for home.

My big black girl turned 46,000 about 20 miles from getting home. Maybe now I’ll have to give her a bath as she’s dirtier than she’s ever been.
