Default cameras/ mounts

So it was just finalized that I will be making a trip to the dragon at the end of may. Last time I was there I did some filming from a tank mount through a clear windshield. The problem is that I now have a dark smoke double bubble, so the tank mount won't work. And before everyone starts harping on me to change my shield for filming, I don't want to. A: its a pain in the balls to get the 2 front screws because they are behing the gauges, and 2: my fairing has hairline cracks around the mounting holes and every time I take off or put on a shield they get worse.

So, does anyone have any suggestions for different camera mounts? I'm not looking for some crazy $200 custom jobber, just something else.

Thanks

duct tape the camera to a toliet plunger and then stick the plunger to the side of your helmet. Then give me your tank mount so i can film you looking like a tard.

GoPro. They make sticky mounts that you can use to mount their cam in front of the windshield, or on the fender, or on the fairings, or on your helmet, etc.

And they have those HD cams now that can shoot full 1080p (or 960 or 720)!!!!!!!!!

I forgot you don't have a shiel to shoot through. We'll have to see if the mount fits on your bike. Might not though cause it actually uses bolts for the gas cap. I'm sure we can redrill some and make it work
