GoPro HD

Was just wondering how you track guys,or Racers mount your gopros on yalls bikes? I was told the suction cup was only good up to 120mph. I finally bought one for the track and was just wondering what's the best way, and yalls thoughts and experiences. Thanks

It largely depends on the type of footage/angle you want to achieve.

I have mine right now on the right side of my helmet, but I still have to find a place to affix it on the bike.

On the suction cup or the other ones that come in the box? The other ones are little black solid mounts that are stickered on the bottom how could that be better?

Sticker mounts work well just get the angles right before sticking. I use the suction cup on the tank which puts the cam behind the windscreen so mph ratings don't really apply. I haven't rode track yet, so no advice on that..

3m sticky mounts held up on the tail of my r6 on the front straight @TWS (Texas World Speedway) ~149mph.

Maybe faster, but that was the highest speed I would actually look down at the speedo...
