This is the best I could come up with. The problems is that the sticky tape is making about 90- 95% contact, and the video is a little shaky...

I have one there and at 100 plus it does shake, one on the left side of my helmet, one behind the passenger seat and one right under the turn signal.

Funny this thread pops up because I just got a GoPro3 Black edition and went for a ride today trying out 3 different locations.

1) One mount is on the top of my helmet.
2) Another, I disassembled the headstrap and used one of the straps to make a leg loop and mount the camera to my leg below my knee.
3) Third that I tried is the bar/seatpost clamp on the top of the fork cap right above the preload knob with the camera facing backwards. This one came out pretty nice-I think I like it the best so far....

I ordered the ram mount gopro adapter and the gopole arm yesterday so I think those will open up more options.

Here's the clip that I shot this morning with the 3 mounts I just described. Watch in 1080P! :

Mine is right on the top clamp. It looks right through the windshield and you can see the speedo and RPM's. It's pretty cool to watch the high speed and RPM ranges later on the video. Also, it doesn't shake one bit!

That's about where I mounted mine, except a little lower on the front. As far as the shaking, try putting a little piece of electrical tape in the middle of mount, just enough to cover that little bar. That should hold the camera in place better and pretty much stop the shaking.

I think the Best spot for it would be ontop of a " Sportsbike headrest".

Depends what you want to see.

Ram mount into the steering column nut is perfect.

See vid for what it looks like
