I'm toying with different spots to get the best videos of my rides. So far I like it best at the rear rack on the side. I get the action of the 4 wheeler and I get to look forward. I would like to see all the trail, but only get that option if I mount to the front rack and it doesn't capture the wheel articulation or driving experience of the quad.

Where have you guys tried to mount and do you use any special mounts that are long like a selfie stick or higher mounted?

Here is what it looks like moving for these three mounting points. Which one do you prefer of these?

3rd video looks good, to me, what about a helmet mount ?

I mount mine under the visor on my helmet. Keeps it out of harms way unless things go way down hill and the visor gets ripped off. But that dosnt happen much.

I want to keep it on the quad because I ride so many different things and use different helmets. I have a few cameras, mounted on each one.

I mounted mine on top of my helmet, I find that going over rough terrain it doesn't vibrate as much as if it's attached to the machine. At first, I mounted it to the front of my Rancher's dash cover, then I moved it to the top of the helmet.

I have a GoPro hero 4. I enjoy making the longer videos but it takes time if I add music and slow motion effects. Also, it helps to have a powerful computer to edit the videos.

Well, all 3 are good videos, if mounted on the quad is the way your headed!? I agree with you, (rear rack) OR how about the stick mount where the flag pole goes, just an idea, it would catch you, bike, trail, and possibly the front right wheel in action ?

rear bags take all the rear space.

In the 5th pic there's some rear rack bar there ,I've never delt with go pros mounts, but I'd go with a high mount on rear right corner of the back rack, AND a helmet mount as slammed sudjusted , should make for two great veiw angles. Body English , bike English, right front tire English .

The place I put it in the back is the only place the camera can see if mounted there with that bar mount.

I an going to have to invest in a LOT of mounts to do the helmet thing LOL. I have a mount for my dirt bike, quad, street bike, scooter, etc. In helmets though I have a flip face for cold, open face for warm, MX for the dirt bike, and so on. They are dedicated for each one, but the weather changes which I use.
