Movies from your Wing

Postby 1CheeseLouise » Wed Jan 02, 2013 11:20 am



I want to attach my small HD Video camera to my Goldwing. What is the best way to do this? the worst way might be duct tape or doublebubble chewing gum.

Most cameras have a hole in the bottom to screw a tripod into them, it is a 1/4" coarse thread. You could rig something up to attach it to your handle bars, your windshield or your helmet.

I just got a helmet cam for Christmas and it came with a stick on mount (3M mounting tape)

stick on cam mounts
stick on cam mounts


That should give you some idea of the direction to go, how ever you attach the cam to the bike make sure you use a second tether just incase the cam comes loose from the mount . you dont want it to hit the pavement and disassemble itself. 8-)

I attach mine to the dash behind the windshield. I fabricated a small block attached it to the dash with velcro to give the camera enough height and space for mounting the camera which I also attach with velcro. You can buy all sizes of velcro at Walmart with strong adhesive backing. Pick a surface with minimal vibration. And a tether is not a bad idea although mine has never come loose.

Mine is attached the same way. Keeps it out of the wind too. I took a piece of heavy aluminum, a block, and some velcro. The camera I use is the small keychain camera so this works very well. I have a ziptie around it just in case also.

I have a tiny micro camera that I mount on the top of my windshield vent, behind the windshield, with high-strength velcro. Works great!

It's a tiny $20 camera from here: http://www.themicrocamera.com/



I bought a $10 8-GB memory card for it. Its internal battery will record for about 25 minutes before it needs recharging.

I use a double ball mount on the left side of the grip and use a GoPro 2 camera. Takes great video from the wing
