GoPro on a Brutale question.

Hey guys, my wife got me a GoPro for Christmas. Iíve attached it to the frame on the right side of the bike. Hereís my first attempt at video editing, riding with a friend. (Thought I might share, its only 5 minutes long) The last bit of the video shows the camera pointing to the rear of the bike.

A few questions Ė
Has anyone attached a GoPro to the rear of their bike pointing backwards, where did you mount it? (Not keen on using the sticky mounts on paint work)
Is it illegal to attach a camera to your helmet in Queensland?
Can the law confiscate your camera and use it against you? (If itís showing your speedo or if you cross double white lines)

Mount my GoPro (??LOL) on the rear mirror stem - not many other places to mount without making another bracket...
Didn't know it's illegal to attach a camera to your helmet in Australia - WTF ???
Don't believe the law can confiscate your camera, unless there is a reason to do so (ie. you capture a crime in progress)
Yes, your camera pics / video can be used as evidence (against you too !)

Good video mate, those little cameras are unreal. I used the suction mount on mine and it is bloody solid and even survived my prang unscathed. As for the constabulary, I`m sure they would be only too happy to use it against you and particularly your mate/s whose number plates are visible (whoops). Well put together vid with the music and fading though.

Looks pretty good.

Are you not allowed to pass cars there?

HaHa, 2 days after christmas and an area that's notorious for cops, not to mention double white lines most of the way.

Seems to be a large topic here on the forum about Aussie traffic enforcement, bummer.

California is the only State where you can split traffic

go back and read what happened at BubbaI, helicopters and all

look around for traffic penalties in Scandinavia

it all about collecting money no more, no less

Good work Paul.

I've had a couple of videos sitting here myself but can't seem to load them up on the site so I might just do the YouTube thingy too.

Getting a couple of custom brackets getting made up next week for both a front side mount and rear mount for my Contour cam - let you know how I go.
