Where to mount a go-pro

My buddy is going to loan me his go-pro for my first track day next Wednesday.
Where should I mount it?
Anything else I should know about running video?
Thanks.

on the front left or right side fairing below the handlebars, or the usual gas tank (causes less wind noise in video), backside view to see the looks of other riders as you pass them...helmet too

I don't have one, but thinking about it, mounting one low on the side fairing and being able to watch the forks and tire work with the up coming road would be cool

I have a mount on my tank. It looks through the windshield.

I like my contour on my tail for that MotoGP look. On one of the side fairings looks great too.

Aww come on JD i was trying to talk you up there , my personal favorite though is the side fairing where you can also see the front suspension working as well...

Sometimes, on my tail to review my riding form, otherwise on the tank aimed through the windshield.
