So I've been playing around with mounting positions for the GoPro. Before I mount anything, I'd like to hear where you all have it mounted. I searched on here, and amazingly enough I didn't find anything threads about this other than where NOT to mount it and a bunch of guys rocking it on their helmets. Pictures of how you have it mounted would rock.

I can have the camera facing forward or back at me on the handlebars and forwards or backwards at various angles from the foot peg mount.

The white cable tie is just an insurance policy in case the camera mount starts to unwind on rough roads which it does from time to time.

Sorry, I haven't got any decent pictures of the setup but mine is on a ram ball on my clutch reservoir.

I can tell you where not to mount it... on the crash bars. Here's a vid I shot with it mounted on my Altrider crashbars. Mind you, the Altriders, are far less "buzzy" than most other bars, and yet you can still see a weird harmonic/video distortion at certain RPM's that shows up as the video getting all wavy like it's a dream sequence. Sort of a cool effect the first few times, and then it gets really annoying. Thanks for the ideas on the RAM ball mount on the mirror widener and the rear footrest - I'll have to try both of those.

Mine isn't a GoPro, but +1 on the passenger footpeg mount -- it's nice and solid, and a more interesting view than the handlebars. I prefer the left side so you can see the shifting, but my camera's mount screw is all the way to one side so I don't get a good angle there.
