Smile GoPro Best Mount Location

Getting a new GoPro Hero 3+ for Xmas. Looking for some input on best mounting locations. Realize it depends on what you want to see, but looking for some feedback on what works and what doesn't.

Yamadoo04 has some great videos with different angles in the Utah Video Thread
A magic arm can get you some pretty awesome angles. I love the mounting to the rear bumper so the camera is a few feet above the track and behind the rider.

I'm no expert, but I like the chest mount. It gives a good field of view and you can still see what the rider is doing with the bars to give you some realization of input to the sled. The helmet mounts don't usually get angled right for me.

I got really bored with POV mounts and decided to buy a VuVantage pole mount. I have RAM ball mounts on my front and rear bumpers. I like the resulting action shots:
