Seems good.... though you might want to angle things out a little to get slightly less of the bike in the shot... also being so low you might find you have lots of shots of verges rather than countryside....

Hi biboy,

Judging by the amount of dirt that gets deposited on the inner facing sides of the panniers,
I reckon the lense will need frequent cleaning in that mounting position !

Just considering use in sunny days, I think not too much dirty shall go on it....I hope.

Anyhow I'm still searching fo other positions....we'll see....

Looking at the video....I was surprised to how much the rear suspension make the wheel move in sport mode (but I forgot that I am on a touring bike  :153: )

I guess it depends on your purpose for having the Go Pro.  If you are looking for pictures to use as analytic data for analyzing performance then I think the current location is pretty good.  But if your intent is to take scenic pictures of your travels then I think a higher location as already suggested would probably be better.

It seems to me that you could design an expanding hex camera mount to fit in the front axle which would provide pretty spectacular video.

I think the problem with fitting anything directly to an axle would be the vibration and shocks over the road surface. You need to attache to the main part of the bike so the suspension has dampened out all the bumps and rough roads otherwise it would be unwatchable.... There is enough camera shake even when you attach the cameras to the suspended body of the bike!
