Here ya go!  You gotta set it off to the right a little for the lens to be dead center.  If you care about that sorta thing...

It picks up some engine noise, but overall not bad.  You can always edit the audio later.  Here is a clip I shot in May.

Two things.  It doesn't use a suction fitting, at least mine didn't.  It uses 3M double sided tape.  And if you're unfamiliar with that tape, let me tell ya, it works.  The second thing, I'm not sure if you can see it, but if you look closely, I have a wire safety lanyard attached to the case, then worked through the Batzen bracket.  So, even if the double sided tape were to fail, the lanyard will keep the case attached to the bike.

I have a Drift Stealth so a different style of camera but I have it mounted  on top of the left hand foglight alloy cover. It's a great position as you get an uninterupted view of the road ahead, it picks up the engine noise (although also a bit of vibration noise from somewhere), and the low position gives more impression of speed (so you don't have to do silly speeds for the video to look impressive).  :008:

I used the standard self adhesive mount and as said the 3M adhesive is excellent.

I've placed mine about 90 mins outside of Santander!
First time I tried to press the start button on my trip it flew off and bounced down the mountainside.

I won't be getting another! :430:
