If you look carefully just below the headlight, you will see my front dash cam.

Rear is same size. I'll see if I can find a pic.

If not now, when?

Thanks, i was thinking perhaps there, or in the gap above the headlamp.  Yours looks the better option....

I sited a GoPro connector on the OE fog light shroud, then swapped the fog lights to decent LED ones, and moved the connector to the top of the right hand hand guard, with correct pivoting GoPro clip attached to teh Hero7 its possicble to have all angles catered for (its a metal ball type swivel bracket).
Withe the aid of power via teh forward power connector thru an Ultimate Addons lead, as long as you start power prior to recording and set video to loop it stays on as long as you need it to.
Xc with factory mats, green furry dice on rear view mirror and acrylic fur seat covers. Saving for drainpipe exhaust and mud flaps.

What type of dash cam is this Steve?

It is a Innov (sp? sorry I can't quite remember) but a UK company had upgraded it with better connectors (the originals had terrible connectors that failed. I had one and had to return it.). But the UK company ( I can't remember the name, I can look it up if it's vital) no longer offers them for sale. Mine has been working fine for two years.

Hope that helps.
