Re: Mounting a Go Pro Camera
I have used 3 positions:
1. Suction mount in the middle/bottom of the windscreen. It does vibrate a little at high speed, and also changes the point of focus(?) if you move the screen up or down;
2. Ram mount on the left clutch lever mount. Nice and stable, but the screen cuts part way through the shot;
3. Bar mount on the right crash bar (Ilium Works). My choice. I thought it would be too close to the ground, but it seems to work well. I use the Gopro on wide (not extra-wide) and only get a small portion of the front wheel in the left of frame.
I haven't used my helmet mount (yet), as the legality of its use is contentious in some states of Australia. The disadvantage I see there is I move my head around quite a lot when doing safety scans, so I reckon that would make the footage useless.
I have a chest mount, which I used walking around NYC on my last U.S. visit. Haven't tried it on the bike, but I think it would be a good option.
