I have had a DJI Spark and currently use a Mavic Air. The Mavic has "Follow Me" technology, but I don't think I will be videoing me when I ride, a couple of reasons:
1. If it loses connection with the controller it will head home, although it can be set to hover at the point of loss connection, either one of these could cause issues.
2. I think it would be a pretty good recipe for a crash, either I would crash trying to see if it was still following me or it would crash, probably into a tree or wire, the drone has avoidance technology but only if its going forwards, backwards or down.
3. Whilst the Drone can fly at 40mph+ its follow me technology is really designed for walking or bike riding, not motorcycling.
What I would like to do is video some mates, with some "Fly By" stuff.
There is some drone stuff in this video at about 2 minutes, if we had stopped at the same bridge this year I would have manually did a "Fly By", probably them coming towards me and the drone flying from front to back. Hard to get mates to pose for a drone.
