The tension mounts seem to work better at reducing vibrations just for that reason, the slack in the quick release mounts.

I just picked up a GoPro today, after 2 years of drooling over others setups (they're waterproof...its all good),
And Kain, that rollbar setup is what I have set my sights on....thanks!

For a tip (gotta give back ya know), For a "safety strap", Home depot sells zip-tie mounts that hold strong, and one doesnt need zipties for them...I use milspec cordage (looks like paracord, much thinner), tie other end off somehere secure. I've saved my GPS this was once.

Pic if it helps

Happy motoring....see ya on youtube

I use the Ram Mount system for my digi camera, GPS, and the GoPro.
It Works well for me. I also use a small elastic cord as a safety tether. Like previously mentioned, I wish that I had one on my last GPS.

I cut a piece of plexi, drilled and threaded a 1/4-20 hole. This allows me to stick the GoPro mount to it and then screw the whole assembly to the Ram Mount.

Interestingly, I have no vibration problem at all on my Deuce. But, on a rented EG there was noticeable vibration. Changing the Ram Mount to the short 3" one made a big difference.

I also ordered the LCD back pack viewer, which comes with a new camera case. It's so much easier to see what's being recorded while it's mounted on the bike. Plus, I can now know for sure that I haven't fumble fingered those tiny little buttons.


BTW, if you use a 'skeleton case' you can then use the USB cord to power the GoPro and not worry about battery life.
