Riders with GoPro on helmets

Where do you guys mount your GoPro's on your helmets?

As in, location on the helmet... near the front, very top center... or?

Personally, I mounted mine on the top, because of the placement of my vents, but I think it would be better to have yours mounted slightly farther forwards as to not get the helmet in the frame (also it looks cooler on the front IMO)

1) place your gopro where you think it should be mounted on the helmet
2) take a small video
3) go on your computer and see if you like that view and adjust if needed, then actually mount it

Am I the only person here who thinks GoPro helmet mounts are ridiculous?? Seriously, I just burst out a giggle everytime I see a person with a stupid box on top of their heads.

You must be way too cool and ride so much, that you don't need to record some epic moments to remember, or to share with friends or family.

Because of the wide angles of the cam its best to have it shooting straight out and high up so you get the full scope. r4 is the best resolution for what we do.

They are kinda weird looking for sure. But you cant deny the results.

haha, I watched one of your other videos, and now this one... I must say your gloves slightly anger me. Other thing is I have a question... do all of your videos have that tilt to it, and is it adjustable to where its not like that?

I look ridiculous often if you are the judge. Let's see some of your videos, oh forgot, never mind.

^^^This, one of the main reasons i bought a drift HD and mounted it on the side of my helmet and when not wearing it use the goggle mount. All personal preference though. Ohh and the fact if i wore a GoPro on top of my helmet i would be damn near 7'3 tall

my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls
