GoPro made a fortune, not solely on the popularity of the company’s product, but because most GoPro cameras spend as much time bouncing along behind a motorcycle as they do attached to one. Kind of a new take on planned obsolescence. This, of course, applies to all models of action cameras and not just GoPro. Watching circus clown editor, Troy Siahaan, one-handedly juggle a GoPro after it detached from the fuel tank of the R1 he was riding was both sad and entertaining. Years later he still believes it lingers somewhere on the 405 freeway.
