Chest mount is my favorite. But I dont think thatd be too great for a sportbike.

I guess it depends on how the COP feels that day, I've worn mine on my helmet and have been right next to cop cars and have had no issue.

the tank mounts gives it a cool view and you don't get the wind noise.

..ahem, but seriously. I've been toying around. Get a grab bag of goodies and with the suction mount and the sticky's you can mount it almost anywhere.

My favorite so far is getting my reflection in the tac as well as the road, giving you a bit of both views.

Used mine a ton on the suction cup mount on the tank. Used it once with the 3m mount on my skiding carriage for my top box, which is not a perfectly smooth surface (think powdercoat) and got some footage of Pink chasing me coming back from seeing the raccoons!

I am a huge fan of a custom mount on the steering head behind the windscreen. It picks up the speedo, tach, and everything in front of the bike.

If you have sidecases you could mount in on the top of one of the cases.


OOoo!! How about on the brake caliper?

I never liked the helmet cams, you can never see what you are doing, and they tend to lose a sense of what is going on speed wise since they are so high off the ground.

Here are a couple of my videos with different locations:

Tail (my favorite as I can see how much I am (not) hanging off the bike and most of my body position)


Tank (Can't see shit but the road and the gauges, video gets boring real quick, but hey it's Texas)


Side (Another favorite, as you can see the front suspension working which ads another dimension to the video, too bad it's shitty video from a contour)

That happened to me once. Found a camera on the side of 20 just west of crossing over the water west of Diablo.

Digging this angle. It's best when the sun is behind your head silhouetting the riders helmet. Tried mounting it to the side panels on the wife's Honda but it kept falling off. Seems the suction cup wasn't sucking enough.

Warning: Not an exciting vid

GoPro suction cup mount stuck to the tank of my XS850 from our ride to Windy Ridge this last weekend. I also stuck it to the front fender with no problems.

I like how it turned out.

Stem mount, so the camera moves with your handlebars. It's as good of a view as the tank mounted, with the added bonus of being able to aim it a bit at low speeds or stopped.

Ass cam is always good.

I've done the same stretch of road 3 times, with the camera in a different position each time, to simulate cuts and different views. It's a pain though, I'd rather have 3 cameras....
