Why a dash-cam?

Anyway, it’s an interesting product for motorcycle users ‘cause of its two waterproof cameras and the recording unit that works in automatic way – after configuration. Configuration that is made trough a dedicated smartphone app. Just one comment before I start to talk about installing it: this is a double dash-cam, it’s useful to record a proof in case of crash, not to record your mono-wheel show (even if it can do it well).

Now, let’s play the game. Time to install it on my old piece of iron

At first, we have to decide where to place the main unit, the DC-DC converter an the cameras. Referring to my Moto Guzzi Nevada, I choose to install DC-DC under the seat while the main unit goes under the left-side cover. Remember to connect yellow cable to a keyed +12V: it gives K2 the signal to start recording. Just for your information, I did it without drilling any hole on my bike;

Then I lifted the fuel tank to pass cables of front camera and GPS unit

Next step is install the 2 cameras. Back camera has a longer cable, but they are equivalent. In fact, I used the front camera as back and vice versa. Front one is screwed under the lower fork plate, back one share the support of the left turning-light

And now, this is the final result. File has been edited and resized for web-sharing. As you can see, thanks to GPS, it shows date, time and speed. It’s also interesting watch how the front suspension works. K2 records audio too, but being so close to engine and clutch… it’s totally insane.
