New to me gopro hero5 black

I am still learning how to use it. I bought a windsock, which is basically a little foam box cut so you can stuff the camera inside it and still reach the buttons and see the rear screen. It really helps with the wind noise.I bought it used on eBay and am well pleased with it. It can shoot all the way to 4K but my computer struggles with 2K so 1080 it is.

Thanks!
Wade you can find a decent used go pro hero 5 or 6 black on eBay for under 200. Mine was $150 shipped with 2 spare batteries. My original go pro hero lasted 17 years . They have come a long way since then. A new hero 9 black is out of my price range at $400.

How do you mount it? It’s so perfect, between engine noise, seeing the instruments and the road.

Thanks for the kind words.
I am using a wind sock to help with the wind noise and the chest mount from gopro. I am still messing with the audio settings. They were left on auto for this video.

Your wind sock is doing a great job with wind noise!

Yeah, it’s golden. Every morning I wonder if this little trip in to work would be interesting to anyone else. $150 isn’t a bad buy-in.
