I'm reviewing & explaining the best 5 GoPro action camera mounts for Harley-Davidson and other motorcycles. I have used different GoPro action camera mounts for many years now on my Harley-Davidson. We use these GoPro mounts when filming videos for the Law Abiding Biker™ YouTube Channel and when filming our motorcycle documentary films. From my years of experience using these motorcycle GoPro mounts, I'll break it down for you so you can find the GoPro action camera mount that will work best for you and your motorcycle.

Understand, there are a ton of variables when using GoPro mounts and how well the footage comes out is dependent on many things; different motorcycle models, years, motors, mount location, vibration, camera models, camera settings, and angles are just a few of the variables to consider.
I will say that whether you're producing professional videos like me or you're just a hobbyist capturing motorcycle trip footage to later share with family and friends, I guarantee there is a GoPro action camera mount for you and your Harley.
Note: I will strongly suggest that you don't get the cheaply made GoPro brand tube/bar mounts. They are cheaply built, break often, and are severely overpriced of course. Trust me, I tried to use them many years ago and ended up throwing away a box or parts. They are frustrating and vibrate badly when mounted to a motorcycle. GoPro makes okay cameras, but many of their mounts are lacking.

So, in no particular order, here are the best 5 GoPro action camera mounts for Harley-Davidson or other motorcycles based on my experience and actual use.
First, is the Biker GoPro Gripper Universal Bar Mount. it fits current production bar sizes from 7/8” (22mm) up to 1 1⁄4” (32mm) into one mount system. This allows it to fit virtually every handlebar or round bar on motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATV's, UTV's, and many other power sports vehicles. Requires only 3⁄4” of handlebar space and can be mounted at any angle.
Each Biker GoPro Gripper mounting system is crafted in the USA through a patent CNC process using high-quality aircraft grade aluminum making your mounting system more lightweight, much better looking, and most importantly, more durable.
Second, is the RickRak Universal Bar Mount Clamp for GoPro. The RickRak GoPro and action camera mount is easily placed on any round bar with the exclusive Rickrak clamp.
