Smile Where did you faster your Action camera?

I finally bought my self a go pro, and now i'm looking for a good place to fasten my camera. I don't want it on my helmet, but somewhere on the bike, and make flicks from my rides.
I ride with a windscreen, so pretty much useless to have on my handlebar, as half the pic shows my screen. (left or right by the mirror)

Where did you fasten your camera? Show of some pictures of your camera mount, as i need suggestions

I have mine mounted on the engine guard. No pix, but I could take some later.

Never run out of traction, ideas, and real estate at the same time.

Here are a couple pix. Mine is a Contour instead of a Go-Pro but mounting is similar.

Ended up with this for today: Has not tested get. But hope it will be stable.
How is that contour cam? Are you satisfied with it?

I like the Contour, especially since it cost me a lot less than a Go-Pro. I've had it over 2 years now and as long as it continues to work, I;m not planning to buy a different one.

I have a chest harness for my gopro.
I didn't want to permanently stick a mount to my nice helmet!
I was debating getting one of the mounts that are for handlebars though...

Glad to be back, I just wish the stores here were open on Sundays.
