I currently have mine mounted on my helmet, lets me aim at what I want to shoot easily. Draw back is makes for a shakey video when doing shoulder checks or when in a traffic area. Going to experiment with other locations like on Clutch master cylinder and even on the trailer a little above head height. I saw a video of a guy running the Tail of the Dragon with his on the trailer like that, made for a very good video. Nice and stable, really showed how far over the bike leaned in the turns. 8-)

here it is

Great video!

I just got mine, so keep us informed. I am going to try several different locations, but would also like to hear from others about theirs.... My son got some great footage from the helmet mount riding his dirt bike. Even a great crash, (no injuries). These are really tough cameras.

I use my Go Pro on the left crash bar. You do get engine noise but the video comes out pretty good. I needed to buy another set of clamps to get it to stay where I wanted it.
Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

I use the suction cup mount and have had mine at the top and bottom of the windshield and on the front of the fairing. I use the remote to turn the camera on and off.

I have one of the mounts on the helmet and a mount adapted to a RAM base. I have used the RAM on the handlebar clamps, lower engine guards and the trailer ball. I think the handlebar location is the best.

One thing though. The helmet mount video is ok; you can feel the drag. But when you stare at a cage driver with that mount on and the camera blinking, they do tend to behave better.

I attach my camera to my Texelent accessory bar. It is very stable.

I have a Drift Innovation and a JVC rather than a Go Pro. I have found mounted lower the better. The Drift is mounted under the front fairing under the headlight. It will also mount under the rear tail trunk. There are quick disconnects so you can't see the mounts on the bike. The JVC is mounted using a suction cup on the side of the rear saddle bag.
I think what is important is if you can show part of your bike in the video. It gives a good depth perception. The front camera shows just a little bit of the front fender. The camera pointing to the rear shows a part of the bike and the video is really cool when you slowly pass a fellow rider or he comes up on you right off your hip.
You just have to keep testing until you decide what you like best. If you get in to video editing, then you will find that you probably will like having a second camera on your bike.

Thanks,
Al Waters
