Default Where do you mount your GoPro or Contour?

If pictures, that'd be great.

Which do you prefer and where do you mount your cam?

Very front of the tank. Can see out the screen and the instrument cluster. I've also mounted on the tail and on the top of the screen facing me.

All over the place.

Tank, tail, windscreen, side fairing, under the tail, helmet.

I even fabbed up a small metal mount that i attached to the swingarm and used the paddock stand bobbin to secure it.

Just get creative.

Tank, or lower fairing so it gets the front wheel, suspension and road speed nice and close up (with cruisy music it is nearly mesmerising), and same for pointing backwards. Can't get a setup for getting the shift lever and foot action in frame right though.

I've even recorded with my ipod before when my minicam died.

I used a suction cup mount on the tank, as far forward as I could. the camera actually ended up over the key. Need to find a new place though b/c there were numerous times I hit my head on it in full tuck.

Does anyone have any issues with removing adhesive mounts from the paint?

I've mounted mine on the front of the tank, which gets this view:


and on the left side fairing, edge of the mount is following the edge of the "cutout" in our fairing, which gives you this view:

I've removed mine about a million times and never had an issue. They normally don't even leave any residue and if they do it's minimal. I have a sticky mount on the front of my tank that I leave there, I use that spot a lot.

2 mounting locations up front (right below the mirrors) and one on the tail section....




If I put the camera on facing backwards on the front mounting locations, this is the view I get...


And this is forward facing

Do you have a picture of the camera and mount, mounted to the front of the bike?

disregard the angle of the camera, I just threw it on there for the photo...




Here is a video as well (sorry, I killed a bug earlier in the session, hence the blur on the top left)
