Default Gopro

I received a gopro hero3+ silver for Christmas. It wasn't something that I would purchase for myself but with several big rides planned for the new year I have to admit to being excited. Today I mounted the camera to my bike and went for a ride. Upon reviewing the video I was disappointed by the sound of my motor. Has anyone else noticed this?

Where did you mount the camera? Was there a lot of wind noise?

I used a handlebar mount and no it wasn't wind noise. It was that whining noise that I changed pipes to mask. There is nothing mechanically wrong. It's just an unpleasant sound to me. I'm thinking about making a fork mount or possibly a mount on the front fender.

Dub over the video with music, hopefully something that fits the scenerary.-----I actually toned the sound of the mufflers down on my bike,made it quieter. Now I really like to wear my earplugs under the helmet just to drown out all the mechanical noise the transmission makes on these bikes. I tend to notice all the noises without the earplugs and it annoys me now. I guess I just keep getting grumpier as I get older, ha, ha.

100% agree with getting grumpier.

It's not a huge issue. I was just surprised by the sound. I'm actually getting grumpier and pickier with age.

Can't expect a camera microphone and computer speakers to produce the sounds your ears hear, now can you?
As recommended, dub in a music track. Here's my favorite ride video with music. Enjoy.

You're lucky! Great present. I've got my eye on one of those, $299, eeek.

LOVE some of the little snippets they show in ads for those, people have gotten amazing shots of all sorts of stuff and places, plus the thing is waterproof!! Great underwater photos as well. I need one.

You are correct Lance. I am lucky. Even though my bike sounds like a sewing machine on the videos.

Which case do you have on the Go Pro? It comes with two, a water proof sealed and a "skeleton" version. The skeleton version will let you hear the motor much better but will give you some wind noise. The sealed one really cuts the noise(not to my liking) but is sealed so water and dust protected. I mount mine to a saddle with the suction cup.
