I'm really looking forward to using my go pro hero3 black with the Grom. I feel adding the camera to my helmet will look a bit off, so I will most likely mount it using the suction cup mount of handlebar mount. Anyone have any suggestions on which mount to use?

I must say that I am impressed. It must feel almost like a full sized bike. I am so glad that honda decided to make it a 4 speed manual instead of making it an automatic. That would have taken the fun out.

Doesn't look all to bad to commute with, well for the region that he is in. I wouldn't try to do this in the busy city streets. Since the Grom is small for it s size I think visibility might be an issue.

Yeah I was about to say for 10hp it doesn't look bad it has enough power to get around. Until we see a good comparison shot beside a full size bike I wouldn't call it out yet. Just like with any motorcycle visibility with drivers is always an issue.

just some advise, if you ever decide to do a grom review or just talk in the video as you ride with that helmet mounted gopro, it will be very hard to hear you clearly unless you talk loudly. Seen a few guys do reviews this way and you can hardly hear what they say.

I don't see myself doing any reviews or anything like that. I would just watch the videos and analyze my riding style or relive moments. It also works for liability purposes if anything were to happen.

I know some guys just use an external microphone and later take that audio and pair it up to the video when editing. Might not be the most novice friendly but it works.

I have heard in the past that you can take a piece of clay or Plasticine and cover up the mic then poke two holes in the side it would help take out the wind noise. Haven't tried this myself but will once I get the Grom.

The Gopro Handlebar/Seatpost Pole Mount should do the job, but I can't say how much it will vibrate when riding.

Those look like a quality mounts but the only problem is that since the handlebars move around so much I dont know if that would be a good video.

The more popular place to mount a go pro is on the tank or on the rear cowel then helmet too I almost forgot.

My idea would be to have one Go Pro camera up front and one Go Pro camera on the back and sync both videos together when riding the Grom. And even more crazy would be cameras to see the foot work for the clutch and rear brakes.

Google glass is another option I would consider once it becomes available to the public. I don't think it should be that much more expensive than a top of the line go pro.

Not exactly sure how it would with a full faced helmet on.

There is also the chest mount and helmet mount. All the gropro accessories retail for about $20 to $40.

The helmet mount is the most common one. Some guys mount on the side of the fairings, windscreeen, even the tail facing the back.

My favorite GoPro mount for cool riding footage is the Chesty or chest mount.

The helmet mount is ok. The handle bar mount sucks for wheelies. The suction cup mount probably wont work on the Grom.
