When Kenny came home from grabbing breakfast on Sunday morning, he found me outside shoveling the remaining snow away from the front of our garage door.
As he walked up the driveway he looked at me, chuckled and said, “where are you going?” I was of course was shocked by his inference and the look on my face told him just that. The nerve! Can’t a girl shovel the remaining snow out of the driveway just to be helpful?
The answer to that question would be… No. There was only about 10 feet of snow on the ground standing between me and going out for a ride. It would have been criminal to waste a perfectly good free afternoon doing something absurd like cleaning or laundry. So, I shoveled.
And His Partner is Chest Rockwell

Kenny got a Chesty chest mount for his GoPro Hero camera this Christmas. Being the chestiest person around here (and I do rock it well), I figured I would be the perfect candidate to take it out for it’s inaugural ride.
The view from Chesty is pretty solid and doesn’t come across as jittery. Even when jumping up and down and shakin’ what your mama gave ya in your boyfriends face. There also seemed to be less wind noise on the audio but that could be attributed to me moving fairly slowly on the wintery streets.
If you are inclined to ride in a crouched position then this particular mount might not serve you well. Also, if you are used to riding with a helmet mount, you might miss the “seeing what I see” point of view as you turn your head.
All in all, I find this particular mount to offer a nice point of view with a steady picture. It’s a great addition to all of the other mounting points like the fork leg, anywhere the suction cup will mount and the tried and true helmet mount.
It also gives boys and girls an actual reason to blatantly stare at your headlights. Win!
Chesty Point of View:
I wonder how it does being worn backwards, shooting the riders behind you? Hmm… I may just have to get out for another ride pronto!
