I just purchased a RAM suction mount. Figured I'd get something that would keep my cam from kissing the tarmac. We shall see. I also bought a ball mount so I can swap my iPhone(gps) RAM mount to my other bikes. Here's the website photo of the Virb mount.

Very nice... one thing I have always done is put a tether on the camera... just in case!

I made a custom mount this weekend for my GoPro to hang it off the bike about 18"... should be interesting. I'll get pics up when I get it attached.

I just rec'd my new RAM suction mount for the Virb. I seems pretty good. I was looking at the ones that you pump but figured that's a seal just waiting to let go. This one you just twist on a flat surface and it locks in place. I'll have to test it at speed. Here are some prelim pics.

That looks great, but when it is on it's side, I don't think you can adjust the recording to rotate 90 degrees, so you will have to be to do that in your editing program. For the side mount, what I would try is to rotate the camera so that it is upside down, then you can rotate the recording in the Virb. The view would also capture a greater amount of both the bike and the scenery. Worth a try at least...

Oh I'll just rotate the recording 180deg as when cornering the cam will be parallel to the ground :woohoo: . Actually I just threw it on for pics without even contemplating. Glad to see I'm not the only anal person out there...

Tsk tsk tsk....I don't see any tethers on any of your setups. I have that Ram suction mount and it's come loose several times. the slightest temperature rise/fall will pop one loose. I don't use it on the bike, just for that reason. It's popped off in my car where there's not much that can happen.
