Even though very little information has been released from GoPro to date, this definitely looks like the must have GoPro accessory for motorcyclists.

One of my disappointments about using a GoPro on a motorcycle is that it’s all but impossible to start/stop recording during riding without putting your life in serious risk.  This result is many hours of video that ends up on the cutting room floor and more time spent editing.

By the look of things the GoPro WiFi BacPac and remote control will overcome this especially as multiple cameras can be operated from a single remote control.

I reckon these will be sold out almost as soon as they are released so get your order in now.  I’ve done just that with the guys at Dogcam (click here to go to their website).
