Gimbal system for GoPro mounting on tank

I have been using the GoPro suction cup on my tank to record videos from a somewhat POV perspective. I want to get a Gimbal system that can display the lean of the bike when going around tight corners. I want to try to keep it on the tank if possible, never seeing this set up, I'm not exactly sure what it would look like what it seem possible.

I have been researching the gimbal mounts, learning more about the different numbered axis systems and how each of them work. Since I only want to be able to capture the lean of the bike, I don't see the point in getting a 3 axis system (tilt, roll, pan) therefore I think a single axis (tilt only) system would work fine. It would keep the camera facing forward, but still tilting the camera left or right depending on the corner the bike is traveling through. I think this would look cool and show how much the motorcycle is leaned over while keeping the camera straight in a horizontal position.

Has anyone seen a system like this or have any tips or ideas for me? Im open to discussion and want to see what others have to say about this topic.

yeah thats something I was thinking of, that system is the 3 axis and I have seen cheaper ones that are just a single and thats what I'm looking for. I just need it to tilt with the lean of the motorcycle, I don't need it to look up and down or side to side.
Also, that item is from AliExpress...not a very reliable site since it is all knockoffs and that same system is only $20 more online from retailers. Just seeing if anyone had made something themselves out of another gimbal system/gyrocam set up.
