    On the bike they are fine per the rules. On the helmet is a no no. Why?

    Helmets are not designed for crashes when cameras are mounted to them. Depending on mounting locations and forces in a crash it could cause helmet failure or transfer more energy to the shell than the shell was designed for leading to bad things.

    that sounds reasonable and along the lines of what I thought, but want to hear others

    The last thing you want is that camera mount snagging on something like a curb and twisting your neck around. If you decide to "take a ride" you want to slide as smoothly as possible to a stop.

    Plus you can't safety wire it to a helmet as a tether to avoid losing it and having it hit someone else riding.
