Mounting a GoPro Camera on a GS?

Just picked up a new GoPro Hero HD2 which is really cool.

The question I have is where are those of you who have one mounting theirs. I'm not into having a camera mounted on my helmet, so I'm looking for mount points on the GS others have found that work well.

Thanks!

I have been using the suction mount & just putting it on the left side of the tank. Haven't tried any other locations yet.

Here is what it looks like for the camera http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ps2RzkQSxz8

I got the handlebar clamp, and I mount it directly onto my bars.

I also like the crash bar mount. It's the little "bicycle mount" clamp thingy.

Looks like:

Just bought the Wi-Fi blue tooth for my go pro. It's freaking bad ass. I can now put the camera anywhere and get sweet video or pics.

So, Hubbman, using those U-bolt RAM mount balls, any place on the round tube frame of the GS works well. I have found that the futher away from the engine, the less jello vibration video effect you will get and the higher quality the video. If you don't know what I mean by jello vibration video effect, try mounting the camera to your crash bars if you have them and watch the video. You will see what I mean.

I also like the GoPro "Chesty" camera mount.

I just used one of the flat sticky adapters right in the center of the beak. Unobstructed view of the road...

Yep.

Yeah, I've also done the sticky adapter on the center of the beak as well as the suction cup which held on really well. I just picked up the K-Edge mount for bike bars which I'm going to modify to work on the side crash bar. Should provide a pretty cool perspective.

I'll post video as soon as its mounted.

Thanks for all the feedback!
