I have used the Go Pro suction cup to mount the camera to the side of a helicopter and it held up with the vibration and 120kts airspeed. I could not get the suction to stick to the paint on my 09 street triple R.
I did a video in november with my Go Pro at Jennings GP. The roll bar mount worked on the handle bar, fork, and rear passenger pegs. A posted it in a previous thread if you want to see want angles I could get withthe roll bar mount.
Thats only because a Street Triple R is faster than a helecopter
So apparently the rough texture of the matte paint wont adhere a suction cup, so I'll go for the roll bar mount and try that with the front forks and the GB Racing engine slider.
As Mac B said, it will fail eventually and it fails pretty quickly on this paint. Falling off while parked in the garage means I could never trust it on the road.

i use the top clamp ball mount (~$5 each on amazon) on all my bikes so i can switch out GPS or goPro.
here's a crappy pic of my brother from the goPro somewhere in Idaho, lens was pretty dirty. but i like that i can position it to clearly show the gauge cluster or turn it around and film myself or back under my arm.
The suction cup has worked for me on several rides and 4 track sessions on my Daytona but it doesn't seem to work on the Street Triple. I, like OKStriple have invested in a handlebar mount, which seems to work fine and it didn't cost much.
Just 'cause you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!
