where do you put the hero

Hey guys,

Where do put your hero camera on the wee ?
Tried it on the handle bar but the view was bad.
I don't like putting it on my helmet.

Put it under the seat, all the motorcycling videos have been made.

I need to buy one first!

I'd Rather get a PC5 instead.

Where are the videos?

On my Vstrom I like the chest mount. I have it pointed a bit low here, but you get the picture;

On my DRZ I have it on the side of my helmet, which also works good. On the top of the helmet is too high.

Accessory mount option for Ricks mirror extension has worked well for me.

Flat mount stuck onto a piece of aluminium, which is then bolted onto the front brake master cylinder / reservoir housing.

You need to go further outboard on the bars with a RAM mount or something homebrew to clear the screen a little more.

Or get creative with a C-clamp cam mount and 1/4-20 tripod adapter and try the right swingarm fore and aft, passenger footpeg aimed at the rider, clipped to the top of a side case, on the mirror pointed back at your helmet, clamped to the side of the radiator frame on the left to catch the front forks working.

Then edit aggressively.
