Go Pro on the back?

Anyone else had to find a tricky place to fit and was there any issues with vibration etc

I've just fitted mine here, need to fix a little better but not really sure how it'll come out

I only face the camera forward on the rear, so I can see my body position.

This is exactly where I would put mine (If I had one lol). How did you secure it? Sticky pad?

btw a lot of muck gets sprayed in that section (as you probably know), so I'd secure it with more than a pad, if that's what you did, I cant tell.

Also, I am wondering if it will benefit from a sort of mini mud guard attached to the underside of the cam, to keep the view clear for longer.

What are your thoughts?

Why do you want to see where you've been? Mount it on the side of the fairing so you can see what your suspension is doing and a look at the track etc. View afterwards, can give you good analysis of your riding.

I got caught out in the rain and the lense did get dirty. I need to make a bracket that uses the screw fixing as it did wobble about a bit too much on my test

Its a second camera. I have a go pro that sits on the right side of the bike for track days (not allowed on tank or lid) and use it on the lid or tank for road

This was a secondary while the front was running if i was on track and made a good pass or had a mate behind if that makes sense

I'm not interested in the suspension moving about, it's setup well and does its job

That's ok, it helped me understand what dad was telling me about what was happening with the suspension. Thought it might help. And if you look at the video, it will tell you what you are doing with throttle etc. Video was just a good tool to show me what I needed to do to be smooth as possible

I fix it on the rear brake fluid tank, to view the rear wheel play
