In order to film each and every moment of your riding life, you do not have to be a professional cinematographer. The only thing that you need to know about is the best positions on your motorcycle where you can place or mount your GoPro.

In case if you have purchased a new GoPro or are looking to buy one but do not know the best position to mount it, you need not worry as we’ve got you covered on that front.

In this article, we will cover all the possible places where you can mount a GoPro on your beloved motorcycle so that you get the desired result from all the captured shots.

Mounting Spots for GoPro on a Motorcycle

  1. Helmet Top
  2. Helmet Side
  3. Helmet Chin
  4. Motorcycle Tail
  5. Handlebar Mount
  6. Chest Mount
  7. Tank Mount
  8. Mirror Mount

Helmet Top

This is one of the most popular mounting spots for a GoPro on a motorcycle. Mounting your GoPro on top of your helmet will give you an immersive view of everything that’s happening in front of you while you’re riding.

Since the helmet is right in front of your eyes, it’ll be easier for you to capture all the actions and moments as they happen without having to worry about missing any of them.

However, do keep in mind that if you’re going to be using your GoPro at high speeds, make sure that it is securely fastened to your helmet so that it doesn’t fly off while you’re riding.

Helmet Side

Just like the helmet top spot, mounting your GoPro on the side of your helmet will give you a great view of everything that’s happening on the side while you’re riding.

This is perfect for capturing beautiful landscapes and scenes as you ride by them.

However, do keep in mind that it can be difficult to see what’s happening in front of you if you have the GoPro mounted on the side of your helmet.

Helmet Chin

If you want to get a more up-close and personal view of all the action while you’re riding, then mounting your GoPro on the chin of your helmet would be a great option.

This will give you an immersive view of everything that’s happening right in front of your eyes and is perfect for capturing scenic routes.

Just like the other helmet mounts, make sure that your GoPro is securely fastened to your helmet so that it doesn’t come off while you’re riding.

Motorcycle Tail

If you want to capture all the action that’s happening behind you while you’re riding, then mounting your GoPro on the motorcycle tail would be a great option.

This will give you a great view of all the things that are happening in your surroundings as you ride.

However, do keep in mind that this position can be quite dangerous as it can obstruct your vision while riding.

Handlebar Mount

If you want to capture all the action that’s happening in front of and around you while you’re riding, then mounting your GoPro on the handlebars will be a great option.

This will give you an immersive view of everything that’s happening in front of your eyes and is perfect for capturing scenic routes.

However, do keep in mind that it can be difficult to see what’s happening right behind you if you have the GoPro mounted on the handlebars.

Chest Mount

If you want to capture action shots while riding, then mounting your GoPro on your chest would be a great choice.

This will give you an up-close sneak peek into all the action that’s happening around you while you’re riding and is perfect if you want to track yourself or another biker who is riding with you while recording his actions from a different point of view.

However, do keep in mind that this position can be quite dangerous as well because it can obstruct your natural freedom of movement on the bike.

Tank Mount

If you want to capture shots of the road while riding, then mounting your GoPro on the tank of your motorcycle will be a great option.

This is perfect for capturing beautiful landscapes and scenes that you pass by while riding.

However, do keep in mind that it can be quite difficult to see what’s happening in front of you if you have the GoPro mounted on the side of your tank.

Also, since the camera will be attached to the tank, the footage will have all the vibrations of the bike’s body. Therefore, you should keep this fact into account.

Mirror Mount

If you want to mount your GoPro on a mirror while you’re riding a motorcycle, this might not be a good idea since most mirrors vibrate when going at high speeds which will mean undesirable shaking and vibration in your video footage.

But some people claim that if you attach your GoPro with the vibration-reduction feature enabled, then it might be a great idea for capturing shots while riding.

But do keep in mind that you should film using at least 60 fps while using this option otherwise, the video footage will look very shaky.

Conclusion

Now that you know about all the different spots where you can mount your GoPro when riding a motorcycle, hopefully, choosing the perfect spot won’t be too difficult anymore.

As long as you’re careful with every mounting detail and are aware of your surroundings before taking off on your bike, everything should go perfectly!

So, good luck with capturing some stunning footage, and have fun!
