Installed FR/RR Video Recording System

After last years' big Western Adventure and having missed a photo of the bear we saw on Skyline Drive, I wanted to invest in a video capture system for our Next Big Western Swing this coming July to Rapid City, Glacier National and Banff.

I bought a VSYSTO for $250 and upon arrival one of the cameras was cutting out so I boxed it back up (Amazon is like Costco when it comes to returns). I then purchased a Motowolf M6 system for $170 and that is the one I installed.

It took about three hours. The front camera mounted nicely using an existing screw below the fairing under the left headlight. The rear cam was a bit trickier... I ended up bending my license plate bracket to accommodate the cam and snuck the wire up under the license plate light. Wiring was pretty easy once I selected where to mount the DVR main unit. Like many an installation, spooling and storing extra cable length took some time. Power via the accessory terminals in the fuse box was a snap.

The video is surprisingly steady! Here's a couple of screen grabs... I'll go back and thank the guy for leaving his clippings on the street later......

That's nice, cool setup.  How do you download the video from the unit?  Is it just pulling a memory card, or do you need to plug into the unit?

The DVR has a micro SD card, so I pull the card then put it on the laptop. Once I get video worth editing, I'll do all that on the laptop then save it onto the master 2TB external HD that resides in the fireproof safe.....

The DVR supports up to 256GB cards, which by my calculations is about 20 hours of recording at 1080p at a 30 bit rate. I'm also going to see if I can turn sound recording off and see if that saves space since all you hear is wind rushing by......
