I've been wanting to mount a camera to my bike for sometime but thought I'd wait until summer to figure out how to do it. Then Stacy mounted one on her bike and had the nerve to post how she did it.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
I thought about wind noise and the wet weather (fog) and I tried to figure out the best way to to eliminate both. I considered wrapping the camera in a ziplock bag and then dub over the audio with music. Instead, I had an epiphany, standing out in the cold garage I noticed the dash on my cafe fairing was just big enough to house a camera.
I drilled a hole in the dash, took a mounting knob off a small tripod I had kicking around and mounted the camera for a trial run on my commute the next morning. I took another video on my way home and loaded both videos on YouTube and then started playing around with iMovie. Here is my first video and editing job.
A much better ride and a lot less traffic than the four lanes of Speedway 34.
EDIT: as per Stacy's request, the camera I used is a Kodak CX7530.
