Helmet mounts make me sick to my stomach if they are longer than a few seconds.

In this video, I used 8 different "mounts"...

Safetyman, cool *** video!


What mount are you using in the frontal shots where just part of the front fender is visible?

Don't forget the Chest Mount. My most stable motorcycle GoPro videos use the chest mount...



Although it doesn't work well with fairing bikes unless all you want to see is the fairing.



So I use a side helmet mount for that...

Thank you.

That is a GoPro Rollcage mount, snugged around the passing lamp mount.

I originally used the GoPro Handle Bar Mount. My goal was to attach it to the engine crash bar. It worked but, it seemed too small so, I replaced it with the Roll Bar Mount. Unfortunately, it records the engine shake and road imperfections. Until you see a post for a really good mount, the Roll Bar mount is most likely the least costly.

It's all in where you mount it.

Engine guard is way shakey, as are the handlebars.

I mount mine on the handlebar with a Ram Mount. Very little vibration. But I ride a twinkie so that may account for the lack of vibration. My Hero 2 has the LCD screen and I use a skeleton case so that I can run a power wire to the camera. No worries about battery life.

I use the roll bar mount attachment and mount that on the handlebar Risers and try to get it right out over the headlight behind the screen.
