Camera Mounts.... Where?
I just ordered a camera mount for shooting video. I have a helmet camera but never use it (too many wires).
Soooo.. With a Cycles Gadget type of mount (RAM, I think), where is the best location to mount it for the best video.
1) Handle Bars.
2) Front Fairing (Old GS has pipes around fairing!).
3) or low on the engine protectors.
Any advice is appreciated..........................

Over 27,000 miles in South America -- which is NOT enough!

Best thing to do IMHO is get a couple of RAM mounts and vary it, though if you just have one that works too--just takes a minute or two to make some shifts. There's enough mount points on the GS for about 7 good locations.
Helmet mounts usually give you a ton of head movement.
Easiest mount on the bike IMHO is on the bars, just off the side of the brake or clutch reservoir. It does also depend on the type camera/lens you have but most will do fine there. You can easily move the camera from looking forward to back to the rider, as well as get clutch/brake/throttle shots by moving it perpendicular to the bike axis.

Like I like. Yep.
