    Quick vid trial of new Gopro Hero 4 silver on my helmet. Turn off the sound though, too much whistle.

    Have ordered external mic but just tested my iphone voice memo sitting in my tank bag riding at speed and it sounds good! I could then add iphone audio to vid without whistle... But ex mic on the way which will plug into Gopro direct or I could use into iphone as well when there's rain around and I need to put the full waterproof housing back on Gopro.

    I didn't upload as HD... learning experience next one I will.

    Maybe a little sunshine to brighten the cold weather days for you northern folks

    I like the helmet mount location.
    This season will be my GoPro moto experiment. Bought one for my kid's sports recruitment video, but haven't tried it on a bike.

    Yep sweatmark, I like that one too, watch how motovloggers set up there gear and they seem to like the in front of the chin vent... And now that i've done this I can see that the chin vent gives a both sides view and better central view and i'll probably do that too.

    I made a great point of view on the flat fairing just behind mirror mount point BUT the whole front fairing assembly was transferring too much jarring from road bumps, doh, cos the rearwards view from that point gave a great view of handlebars, levers and me and the road and sky behind. Plus front view framed by edge of screen and mirror stem looked great too.

    Next bike mounts to try will be just in front of knee and on handlebars... I rode around with light finger tips testing different points for different vibrations ...

    Good fun

    I like the helmet mount as it allows the viewer to get a feel for the bike's movements. Keep posting for us here on the frozen tundra.

    North Coast NSW wonderful part of the country. You're going to make all those Brits jealous showing all that sunshine

    I've read rumours it's now illegal to mount a camera on your helmet in NSW. True or false?

    The best mounting location I've seen is one on the fairing that allowed you to see the front suspension working. It gave a good feeling of the ride, being fairly low and captured the feel of the ride. I was fascinated also with how much the suspension was working and how stable the bike was.

    Hi Chris,, I've played around with mounting my GoPro in various places. I've settled on the clutch lever mount. On the wide setting I can see the edge of the bike's screen for a some sense of depth. I have the camera attached to the bike to get a better idea of lean angles rather than to my helmet.

    I believe NSW is leading the way.
    Most of the other states are looking at making it illegal as it negates the reason that helmets have a smooth surface on the outside.
    They have found that some motorcycle deaths have been caused from severe neck injuries, possibly from the helmet mounted camera snagging the ground in a slide or rolling type situation, instead of skidding on the surface.

    I know that on my first off, the helmet had some severe abrasions down both sides of the helmet, so I'd hate to have had anything protruding from the helmet in that situation.

    Generally the mount is stuck on via double sided tape which wouldn't survive any impact with the road anyway. Apparently the legislators believe mounting a camera to a helmet, even using double sided tape, weakens the integrity of the helmet. I have a sneaking suspicion the authorities (read police) don't wish to be filmed.

    The force required to break the double-sided tape can be enough to cause more severe injuries, especially to the neck area, in an accident.

    But the force needed to break the tape isn't caused by the tape breaking but by the impact of helmet against the road (or another immovable object). Glueing or sticking something to a helmet isn't going to weaken the structural integrity of the helmet like drilling a hole through the shell for example.

    Back in the 1990s I mounted a Sony VHS Handy Cam to an old helmet by drilling a hole through the shell and mounting a tripod screw adaptor. It didn't work too bad although a tad heavy and I got some really funny looks.

    Have you noticed when you play the video back it appears you're going faster than you actually were? Or is it just me?

    The requirement with the helmet is not the structural integrity, but the twisting forces placed on the neck. That is why there are no protruding sections on a modern certified helmet. if there are they must be clipped on only and faired into the shape of the helmet (air ducts and aerodynamic parts) to ensure they are smooth enough to slide on a surface and are unlikely to cause additional twisting effect on the neck in an accident.

    I have tried various positions on the bike but the vibrations are too much and you get seasick if you watch it afterwards. The best place for me is on the helmit. Not so much vibrations and the advantage is that if you are riding in a gorge or any new area you can look around and get it all on camera.
    Had it in same location while I was a "speed freak" on a Busa as well.
    Works for me.

    You might want to try the chin mount since its a gopro, they really stick out when sideways.
    For external audio i use H1 Zoom really gets u the lovely exhaust note and you can add another mic for under your helmet if you re into vlogging etc
