    Go pro session mounting

    Has anyone mounted the go pro session yet? I don't particularly want to mount it on my helmet, so where to put it and what mount to use as the go pro one for handlebars is too small. Ideally I'd like to put the mount on the highlander frame somewhere. Any comments gratefully received.

    I make some ram ball type mounts and replace the factory bolts at various points on the bike. The session is a great piece of kit, I've had several GoPro's and the session is definitely one of their best.

     Some pics of the kit on my Weestrom. I'll get some from the VFR next time I go in the garage.

    Hi Andy

    In 2015 I did a test of cameras and locations on the bike.

    Mounted of the frame there was vibration issues, handle bars or rear box similar issues and the best has been a helmet cam as the body takes the vibration and a turn of the head towards the direction of a site or an issue makes sure it's captured.

    Test of Garmin Virb on body Crash Bars, this camera has it's own image stabilisation.

    Different Sports Cam. Sony HDR15 (image Stabilisation), Gopro and SJCAM

    Hope these give you some thoughts and ideas if you can do image stabisation before it better than after.

    Any questions on what I have tried let me know.
