I'm doing a 6 day trip next month through the South West National Parks. I want to mount my Go- Pro somewhere on the bike but not sure where.
Any ideas what works best? I do not want to mount it on my helmet.

I got the handlebar mount and it works fine. No wind noise and it gives a pretty good view except for behind. It does dampen all noise except what it picks up through the hard mount, so the shifting sounds disproportionately loud.

I used the suction mount up front but my bars got in the way. I bought a chest strap and it worked much better. Here is my test video of the chest strap in action. There is some minor chatter on the actual mount and I am working on fixing that. I have some silly little "nose plug" looking piece but it does not work with this mount or any other fixed mount GoPro gives you. Sorry if the video is boring, just trying out the chest strap heading to my Victory dealer.

I have the rollbar mount and put it on the fork next to the headlight. So I can reach up and turn it on and off without using up all the memory.

I have several mounts on my bike for the GoPro. The main one is on the handlebars just slightly above where they turn upwards. Any higher than that and I would get vibrations.

I also have a helmet mount and one on the rear of the back seat looking backwards. I tend to do a lot of video when I'm riding in a group so I like to get some shots of the group from in front and behind.

I know you said you don't like the helmet mount, but I have to say that tends to be the most vibration free and flexible of any of the mounts I have used on the bike so far. I have the chest mount but I haven't used it. I suspect that might be pretty free of vibrations as well. The advantage of the helmet mount is it's high enough so that you're not looking at your handlebars or windshield in the frame as much. What I most like about it is I can get sideshots of places as I pass by, or other members of the group as I ride by just by turning my head. I have that mount placed in such a way that it allows me to either mount the camera looking forward or backward.
