A week long motorcycle journey, six ferry crossings, four border crossings thousands of miles and countless breathtaking images and riding emotions all presented in the most pleasant, smooth and easy to grasp way along with stunning photography and in the most humble demeanour. Thank you for all the above and also for the fact that you make them feel easy and feasible for the rest of us. I would be happy to achieve even a fraction of what you have done as a motorcyclist so far. Keep travelling so we can keep dreaming.

Thanks for the luggage info, I will definitely buy a set (y)

Lovely video once more, along with your photographs and description one can really get the feeling and the unique atmosphere of the beautiful places that you choose to visit and ride through. Your videos indeed look almost perfect in 4K on big screen tvs but pretty poor in lower definition. Loading times are also higher in comparison to other channels.

Just search for "luggage dividers - organisers" on Amazon or simply Google the term, you will find many styles, my tail bag is pretty much square shaped so the large - medium - small format works just fine. You may need to buy two sets for side bags - panniers but don't spend more than 20 quid per set, the quality of the materials and the zippers is just fine around that price point.
I bought a set on Amazon for 19 quid and it works with any shape and size bag or suitcase. Very practical and stupid simple. Thank you.

Hi there, I am using a GoPro knockoff called ThiEye T5 since 2018, you can find stills and more impressions here:

My trip to the mountains of Northern Greece | Kawasaki Motorcycle Forums (kawiforums.com)

It is cheap and very well built with a lot of accessories but for bike use you will definitely need this:

Motorcycle Equipment Helmet Chin Strap Mount For GoPro Hero 9 8 7 5 OSMO Action Xiaomi Yi Action Camera Accessories|Sports Camcorder Cases| - AliExpress

...or any other good quality chin mount (the above is dirt cheap and can be used with almost any type of helmet).

Camera technology has moved on of course and I am sure you can now find improved models but definitely go for native 4k resolution and in-camera vibration reduction for best results!
Thank you GR rider, I am planning simplicity, a large memory card in order to record constantly and then sorting out the footage via pc - 100 quid is my limit!

If your target is constant recording, battery power will be your main problem.

You should buy a power bank along with the high-capacity memory card and find a practical way of connecting the mike and the power supply at the same time.

It's either that or alternating between spare batteries every now and then I am afraid!
All right, I will see what exactly can I afford because a power bank was not included in my initial plan. Thank you again for your help!

I bought a nearly new GoPro 6 with all the accessories and two batteries for 120 quid! I am still learning how to use it but I think I will need that chin mount you proposed as I don't like 3M stickers on my helmet. And maybe a power bank in the near future! Thanks again for your help :)

Nice grab, which version of the 6 though? Black? I wouldn't worry too much about 3M VHS tape on the helmet, goes on and stays on extremely well, and comes of extremely easy with a hair dryer when no longer wanted. Hell, sticker is so good you could probably reuse it a few times given you can keep dust out of it.
Thanks for the top tips mate, 6 Black indeed! It's harder to use than I expected and I am currently using it to film my cat and my daughter :D

And as GR rider wrote the chin mount makes the most sense for motorcycle recording. Good value for the price.
