Keep your GoPro Hero above water with this floating grip and other top accessories. (Amazon/)
Your GoPro Hero 7—or Hero 6 or Hero 5—comes with the bare essentials needed to start recording your own videos, with the exception of a micro SD card. You get two mounts and the frame to secure your camera—that’s it. It’s impossible to capture your cross-country treks and moto shenanigans with two measly sticky mounts.
If you affix both of those mounts to your bike, what are you going to do when you get to your destination? Leave your camera on your motorcycle? The GoPro Hero is the ultimate action camera, not just a motorcycle camera. It's meant to live with you as you go snorkeling, surfing, hiking, skydiving, waterskiing, or strapped to your furry friend at the dog park. We've compiled some of the best accessories for your GoPro Hero so you can get the most out of it.
Neewer 50-In-1 GoPro Hero Accessory KitThe must-have accessory kit for every GoPro owner. (Amazon/)
It's hard to piece together a complete GoPro Hero accessory kit, and purchasing each mount by itself is costly. The 50-in-1 GoPro Hero Accessory Kit contains every mount you could ever need, at a price that allows you to spring for another battery or a larger SD card.
One of the pieces included in this kit is a chest strap that fits over your jacket. If you ride with a backpack, there’s a mount that attaches to your shoulder strap. The suction cup mount works great on flat pieces of bodywork, the gas tank, or windscreen, as long as it isn’t overly curved. Five standard GoPro sticky mounts ensure that you can get the perfect angle on your bike.
The tripod is perfect for setting up on the apex of a turn as you blow past it. Just be careful during the setup process and pay attention to traffic and road conditions. The floating grip and selfie stick are not intended to be used on your bike, but give you a reason to take your GoPro everywhere with you.

When GoPro created the Hero 5, it ditched the clear, full-coverage plastic housing in favor of a frame housing that clamps around the perimeter of the camera. It made the Hero 5 waterproof up to 32.8 feet and added an interchangeable lens protector to counteract the loss of the housing, but lost the total protection that the full-coverage case added.
