Did you get the Motorsports edition that comes with the suction cup mount?
If not, get it here:
http://gopro.com/camera-mounts/suction-cup-mount/

Another cool option (I think) is to get a tow hook camera mount like this:
http://www.cravenspeed.com/gopro-camera-mount/

I used that in this video:

Most of the mounts you can just buy from their website but in the PX I saw them selling GoPros and in many stateside stores...all the prices are consistent as I've been pricing gopro products for a couple of years.

If you shot them on the highest resolution you will need a decent PC to play the videos, especially if you're playing them directly from the SD card. The video on my old laptop was a little jerky till I copied the file to the local hard drive.

Hope this helps.

I used this GPS data logger to capture the data:

And then used DashWare to render the video:

I just ordered one of those GoPro mounts for the tow hook and I'm thinking about ordering one of those GPS data loggers, this will make for a fun summer.
