    Depends what I want to film... I've done several videos at the TT over the years and:
    I've mounted the camera on the tank to get a good view of the road and dash of the bike
    I've mounted it on the engine bars to get the view lower down, with the front wheel in view
    I've mounted it on the back (rear facing) to film my mates
    I've used a Migsel mount just to film the road through the screen (no dials)

    Take your pick, really...

    Hahaha... You're right. I just remembered; I put a stack of paperback books into a plastic bag and gaffer taped it to the top of the tank, then taped the camera on top of that after getting it lined up how I wanted it. It was some years ago, but it came out pretty well...

    Nippy Normans do a mounting bracket that fits on the front of the windshield out of sight.

    A ram mount on the bottom of the mirror stalk... Easy to access buttons and little or no vibrations. Works for me anyway

    GoPro Session camera, and I use a mount purchased off e-bay that fits in between the bike and the front indicator. Not tested yet, but bought the cameras off a friend who had the same set up and it worked a treat.

    My previous Drift camera mounted on the top of the LHS front crash bar, using the std Drift 'handlebar' mount; worked really well.

    that has to be the all time classic GS video, I remember when you first posted it, back when the whole world seemed to ride sportsbikes. I think you opened a lot of peoples eyes re the capability of these wierd looking Chook Chasers.

    Great stuff !

    I used the Kaiser Baas X100 it's pretty good, overall very impressed, I wanted a GO PRO but didn't want to pay that much. I've mounted mine on the front crash bars.
