Smile used the mirrors to mount my gopro.

Here see for yourself when not in use the only parts left on the bike are the small brackets that are permanently mounted under the mirrors.
When I took these photos it was only sitting in position for the pics.

It is rock solid and adjustable to keep it out of your vision.
2013 10 24180418 zpsb05aadfd
Believe it or not it's not in my vision at all, even when I'm completely tucked. Which is never. 2013 10 24180346 zps90d08c9a
And one more from the front. 2013 10 24180337 zps40b32689

And if click on one of the photos and go directly to the album you can flip thru the rest of the photos in that album you'll see the mount that I'm tinkering with for the rear of the bike. It's also very solid but I still have yet to get it long enough to see over my helmet.

And here's a little video from the front mount

The shot looking back was shot with a hd3black FOV set on "narrow".
The view looking forward is using a standard sticky base to my bike with a hd2.

I could see a long way around the corner and just got lazy and let it drift wide.

Huh... more over the top than I need/planned on... but looks great for getting good footage.

You could just mount a camera upside down from the bottom of it instead of the 2nd mount.

That's pretty awesome. Been looking into ways to mount my gopros on the bike as well. Thanks for the inspiration.

Yea it's a little over the top for riding around on the street. However, you can make a less intrusive mount using the same (under the mirror) idea. (lookin for a good way to throw a shot of the hands in every now and then.)

I wanted the camera angle. So I had to get the camera out there somehow. And I like it.
I had kind of planned on mounting one underneath, but the thumb screw hits and I will have to make a whole bracket and bars.

You can replace thumbscrew with a regular ol' screw.
I did that on a couple mounts where I wanted a tight bend and the thumbscrews got in the way. Might have to mount camera first, then put the mount on the bike.

you guys and your silly gopro mounts, lol....looking good.

i need someone to lend me a street bike so i can show you mine! my dirt ride is too harsh on the mount and I'm afraid it would die quickly amongst the trees.

for the street...it will be amazing. i look forward to sharing some moto vids soon with it.

in fact, my mount, coupled with your mount would be so awesome.
