Best camera angle

Thinking if picking up a camera GoPro(track/trips etc) most guys mount on the gas tank. I have a tinted wind screen . So any suggestions where is the best place to mount , so it be most interesting to watch later on the tube?

try the helmet mount. i just ordered a gopro im thinking of mounting it on the helmet , its also cool cause it has your view of everything to watch later with others.

You can use the suction cup and place the camera in front of the front fairing (above the small headlamp). You can place the camera at the same place, but facing the rider. The tail section is another interesting location if you want to have the "MotoGp" kind of video

Kinda cool. Will have to check it out. Even though the camera has anti-shake build in it, would it still be kind of shaky to watch ?

Front would be cool , but from what my friends are saying , that once you put GoPro suction cups/mounts its almost impossible to take off with out damaging the paint

No problem with the suction mount, he must be referring to the little stickies.

little late, but this is with the suction on the front fairing and tail fairing, along with the sticky on the tank cover. you canNOT beat the footage of a gopro
