POV camera

Kids got me a POV HD vid camera for birthday (prob cos I'm a geek and I said I "needed" one at some stage)

Not keen on having any mount "permanently" put on either the bike or the helmet - any advice on what is the best mounting mechanism, position on bike, doe's and don't s etc?

Sensible responses please

I've seen harnesses that you can wear with the camera pointing forward on your chest. The videos made with those seem to look really good.

A suction mount might be a good option on top of the flat airbox/fuel tank of the F4.

I just got a Go Pro Hero 2 camera, the motorsport pack. It comes with a 'suction cap' mount. Fits really nice on the flat top of the airbox on the F4. This it the pack I got here:

I was very hesitant at first, thinking it would fall off. Its very good though.

Heres a little vid I did using the Go Pro using time lapse:

In regard to your camera. I'd get something from here:

Subject: Duct tape


During a private "fly-in" fishing excursion in the Alaskan wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen left a cooler with bait in the airplane. A bear smelled it.

This is what he did to the plane.

The pilot used his radio and had another pilot bring him 2 new tires, 3 cases of duct tape, and a supply of sheet plastic...
He patched the plane together, and FLEW IT HOME !
