Question GoPro Hero HD

So my fiancee got me one of these for my birthday last month, I've always wanted some type of video camera to record some of my rides. Does anyone have one of these, looking for the any recommendations on where to install this camera on my k9 gixxer750.

Any help is appreciated.

hahaha...... if you see my bike it has the 3M permanent tape from front to back!

right on top of the headlights i have one, on the tank there is another one, on the rear seat...another one, and one on the side of the fearings for leaning shots!

they all work really good...so its up to you what shots you wanna get.

tip: if you put it on the rear seat.... there is going to be alot of vibration at high speed.

i have one and the only place i mount mine is on windscreen cause the cup wont grab anywhere els on my o9 750 and i dont want to use the sticky tape on my plastics and my windscreen is smoked out so cant mount on tank! but the cup has failed on me before and i am now waiting on new case lens which is 30 bucks! so i might have to break down and use the tape!

Cool. Let me know how it turns out. I still haven't put mine on my bike yet. Haven't had the time to tinker with it. Good luck, have fun!

my suction cup was tested to about 100 mph in the rain in Europe's bumpy roads on the top of the rental car....no problems.

i've also had it on the hood of my truck and seen it slowly loosen up to where when I went to remove it, it just came right off. that would have been a bummer to lose on i-10.
