Gopro mounting.
« on: August 06, 2018, 01:21:37 pm »
So, I have a Gopro Hero 4 Black edition. I've used it on my R1 on trips, track and daily rides. I've used the glue on mounts on the bike and my helmet, front of bike and back. I've used the suction cup at over 150 mph, and so on. The problem is, the R1 is built to be lite and as hard as I try there is always some vibration.
I was about to leave on a trip tot he SW on the R1, but it had an idle problem and I had to order a part from Japan that won't be here until a few days after my planned departure.
So, I'm holding off on that trip and planning a new one to the some of the NW on Stevefl's old Concours I purchased from him.
I'm leaving in 9 days and I'm so busy that I have no time to experiment with places to mount the Gopro.
I was hoping someone has already figured out some good spots.
I don't want to mount it on my helmet because I look around a lot.
I want a front mounting place for the suction cup or the glue mount that won't vibrate.
For backwards video, I would use only the suction cup.
Any advice?
