Ricoh WG-M1 Helmet Mountable / Low Quality?

I've seen loads of videos and pictures of people who've managed to get a Ricoh WG-M1 Action Camera mounted to a helmet (Motorcycle, full-face), but I can't find any specific places online about them or where I can even get my damned hands on one?

I'd really like to know wheres and hows of coming around to mounting the camera onto a helmet seeing as it is the reason it was purchased.

Secondly, when ever I open pictures and videos on my computer, the video looks low resolution and not as good quality as I expected, is this because of the huge width and length of the videos?

Thanks,
Ben

Here are the official WG mounting accessories:

There is no dedicated helmet mount AFAIK, but you should be able to find some generic ones

I know there are no official ones, which I think is a tad poor considering vast use of most action cameras are for recording such things. Are there any curved adhesive mounts that I don't know about or can't find? Or are there any known ways to use third party mounts with a certain adapter of sorts?
