Only issue I have with mounting it to my helmet is once you pick up some speed it catches a lot of wind and you can feel a head bobble. Looking at the Contour Roam2 for a helmet cam.

I have the DRIFT action cam and are loving it. I am going to get a second one so that I can have two angles at the same time. Here are some pic's taken from the video to give you some ideas of angles.

What I want to end up with the two camera's is like the pic of the guy on the Ducati,,,looks really cool.

A guy I ride with has an RR and he has his GoPro on a chest harness from them. Great position - good sound and you see are the instruments and part of his hands - and the entire road.

here's a video I took from a helmet-mounted Contour - not the greatest but not that bad. I think the best place on the S1000RR is on a RAM mount on the triple tree - need to get one of those!

FYI...........I tried the hairdryer method to remove GoPro sticky mounts off my helmet and my bike faring. Worked great. No issues at all however the removed mounts are not reusable.
