You're right - I was so focused on cable management and keeping everything tidy that I didn't consider that. Next time I am doing any work in there/reorg I will move it. One thing I gotta test is... I have a feeling that the microphone is in that part and not the cameras - I have no ideas for sure but I keep meaning to try talking into the cameras and button to test. If so, that will dictate placement too as right now my recordings have a **** of a lot of engine and wind noise.

Microphone is in the trigger. You don't really *need* to push the trigger ever. It records video all the time there is power to the unit, and all the videos are saved until you run out of storage space, and only then does it start writing over the old ones. If you have a 128GB micro SD card, that would be a very long time.

If you short-press the trigger it saves a still image, plus a 15 sec video (10 sec of video before trigger press, 5 sec of video after trigger press). Nice because it easy to find what it was you thought was interesting at the end of the ride.

If you long-press the trigger, whatever loop is being recorded at that point is marked so that it is never deleted (for when you run out of disk space and it starts writing over itself).

But, if you have an incident/video you want to save, you will almost certainly download the video from the unit as soon as you stop (long before your unit would ever write over a video), which is easily done by connecting to the unit via wifi and copying the video to your phone.

Thanks for the awesome documentation o fall this. I got a 2020 last week and will be putting a camera on it eventually. I am not a vlogger, but plan to share videos. That quality looked good to me, but I use cell phone video all the time.

I just got mine installed - what a PITA to pick spots to mount the cameras! I thought about using the Givi bolt on the back like the OP, but that left the little Phillips screw blocked so I'd never be able to loosen/adjust the angle/rotation of the camera. I ended up sticking it on the top of the tail (underneath the rack) as far back as possible. Front camera is under the nose as far to the left as possible - I don't think there's a chance of it contacting the upper fender unless something terrible is happening (and then I won't care, right?).

Where did anyone tap into power? I found switched power at a harness connector on the left side of the bike, near the front deep storage tray (the connector that goes back to the tail/brake lights). I don't *really* want to tap in there, but it sure is a handy location... right next to the "DVR" unit.

Circumstances; I was getting ready to buy a house and needed all loans off my credit at the time; my wife's part-time salary couldn't count towards qualifying for the loan and I needed to make sure we were approved. Sold the '13 to dump the loan, then bought a super clean '08 I found in Arkansas that I liked with many extras that came with the bike that were not installed. That was in 2015; paid about half the cost of a '13 at the time and no loan that way. Miss a few things (cruise control and the dash/menu), but I really made the '08 my own and to my liking. The '08 has been great. I may get another Gen 3 later, but I'm gonna want the slipper clutch and likely the LED lights, so '16 or up. For now I just don't see a reason to do anything, still enjoying this one.
