Ok if you stick it to your helmet you can go on the top or the side. Assuming it came with the curved mount with the 3M adhesive tape. It's a smoother video on you helmet. You can mount it to the bike, a more shaky video but still great. You have to find a spot that you like. On eBay they have some camera mounts for the R3 that fit between your front mirror plate. There CNC Aluminum. Problem is looks unless you put them on both sides but that would be if you had two cameras one facing forward and one rear. Myself have a GoPro mounted on top of my helmet works great unless I'm checking out left or right and rear. Camera on the bike points forward all the time this is a plus.

If you mount it on the bike the vibration transfer does not make for usable video. you could use it for crash evidence or something but for enjoying the replay, too shaky. Go for helmet mounting.

Second for helmet mount. The top was the only semi flat area where I could mount the adhesive base plate, but the picture is nice and no shake like you would get if mounted on the bike. Pic of my helmet with my GoPro session

This is how I have my GoPro Hero 3 mounted on my Helmet. For a lipstick type of camera I would defiantly do a top mount.

I got one of those since they are so cheap now. They come with a few different mount options I'm not sure how well the adhesive will hold on the one.

it's the center mount in that picture. You "should" be able to find a spot on your helmet that you like that the mount will sit with the adhesive surface fully on your helmet.

I also advise if you haven't already getting a bigger Class 10 MicroSD card with it. I let it sit in my living room and recording till full on the one that came with it. The card was full well before the battery died.

That's exactly what I have. The attachments with the 3M tape are the mounts on the left. There are actually 2 there, one on top of the other. The middle mount is the handle bar one. I also picked up a 32Gb Class 10 card.

Yeah I was going off memory as I posted that while at work. But yeah I don't know how well the 3M adhesive will hold. I guess since it's so cheap to get another one of those cams now (can still find them at some gamestops for $25 and amazon I think has them for $30 now). won't hurt to try and if it falls off etc guess not much lost.
