Gopro mount

So I don't like two sided tape on my bike. What do you do for a gopro mount??? I made my own. What do you think? If there is interest, I am thinking about becoming a vender on here and selling them. Might do another for the front fender. Any other ideas? Throw them at me

How do the videos look through the tinted screen?? I have a Puig dark double bubble and couldn't see shit through it.

I kind of like the double sided tape, it will not screw your plastic up if you prep the location site properly.

The one location I would like to see a hard mount is an attachment for the rear peg(s)

The other is under the chin of the nose....I am a GoPro whore too.

I just got a gopro this week, things awesome!!! I took it out on the bike for a quick blast today... I used the handlebar mount on my mirror, had to use a small pc of tubing to make it tight. There suction cup mount seems like it will work great on the tank.

^ I'm also a fan of the suction cup mount but I always make sure to tether it to the bike with a short piece of string in the event the suction cup comes loose or whatever.


OP - That mount looks nice.

I used the suction cup on the side of the fairing and it worked great. My only critique of it was you could hear the cam gears a little to well. But the suction cup mount itself worked very well.

the mount to under the chin is tricky especially under hard braking. I found out the hard way, if one is made for under the chin be sure it pops out forward and not being sandwiched....
