recomend gopro locations

Hey can any one recommend some kool spots to mount my Go Pro rather than the normal tank, bar, helmet and chest locations that they have tried and don't vibrate too much.

Have only just got it and tank works well on a low mount but can't see the gauges unless I use the high mount but then it vibrates too much.

Was thinking maybe trying the front mud guard or under the rear seat facing back might be kool or even off the side of one of the engine slider covers.

And any tips would also be great got go pro hero 3 black edition.

Thanks.

recomend gopro locations

Two different Class 10 cards from two different manufacturers can have very different write speeds, and thatís the crucial spec here. And to complicate things further, there are different kinds of write speeds and they vary by the hardware and software combination thatís doing the writing.

I'm fond of the "panty cam" position. Velcro the GoPro to the top of your foot, hit up the fast-food joints or anywhere there are girlies standing in a line and get some good shots. Be sure to post up!

i have the suction cup mount on the tank, which works pretty well. You get a good field of view and the vibration isn't too bad. I've only tried it there and on the side of my helmet.

I like using the frame slider: (later figured out I needed to secure the slider with tape so it wouldn't rotate like it does in the middle of this video)

And the pillion foot peg facing backward:(starting at about 45 seconds here)

Also the front forks can yield a good shot

Personally, I prefer to have some part of the bike in the shot for reference.

Any video of the under the triple tree mount? I've never tried that, sounds interesting. I imagine part of the headlight bowls is in the shot?

You're correct. I'll try to get something for you.

Edit: No video but I have a screenshot from a video as well as how it is all mounted. Im using the Liquid Image Ego but GP can also be done here. All mounting is from RAM Mounts. Great stuff.
