    I had a go pro before but find my cheapo Xioami Yi gives me better results for a lot less money. Especially if it bounces down the road!
    I've always used a helmet mount but I think the crash bars would be handier.(Stop you looking like a knob, too.)
    Any problems with vibration?

    No problems with vibes, only been on a week so it hasn't been tested fully but first few rides, I've been quite impressed, the X80 has I slight fish eye effect but very clear for £60ish and you are spot on....if it bounces down the road or gets stolen, it's not the end of the world.

    The X100 has wifi and removable battery so can change when runs out.

    I use s Git2, brilliant camera that has gyro stabilisation (software) and a brilliant pic for £100 it is ideal for onboard stuff

    i did a video for my mate in Aus to show him how I mount it.

    The wi fi it's handy for setting it up, but it will eat your battery time if you leave it on all the time.
    My Yi had the fish eye effect when it first arrived but was able to change it to normal using the settings on the phone app.
    Must clamp it on to the crash bars and try it next time I'm out.

    Anyone know of a bracket that could mount a GoPro at the Brake or Clutch reservoir?
    I have a R1200GS LC. Basically after a good location where I can get power to it, but also easily reach it to start/stop recording.

    Have tried by the front indicator light, but keep getting vibration and difficult to reach. Not getting a good picture from a chest strap or the tank either.

    Fit it to your crash helmet and run a power supply lead to power bank in your pocket, it will/should last you all day and your body will take most of the vibrations so you'll get a better vid.
    The older I get, the better I was

    I use a cheap Amazon chest Harness and an SJCam 4000 WiFi (GoPro Clone) I've got a Hero 3 Black edition which is not as good as the SJCam.

    Some Raw footage, probably with a bit of chuntering, on the Stelvio in August from the SJCam on the chest harness.

    Had my GoPro mounted on GSA crash bars. Not bad footage until a tyre change now unwatchable. Going to use helmet mount in future.

    I struggled to find somewhere to mount my bullet style cam, as I wanted to keep it as unobtrusive as possible, but failed. In the end I bought the bracket that mounts under the offside indicator and adapted that to fit my Roadhawk cam. The footage is very good as vibrations are virtually non-existant, so no jello. Happy Days.
    Unfortunately it's not secure there, (from little passing fingers), so I do remove it if I'm not close to the bike
