I just picked up a thinkware m1 dual channel dash cam for my scooter.
Anyone have any experience with this dashcam?
Has anyone installed a dashcam on a scooter?

I got the dashcam installed.
The image stabilization wasn’t on during this recording.
I had a hard time deciding where to place the cameras, I decided to go to the front fender because the camera view will move along with the handle bars. Don’t know if that was a good idea but we will see.
I will get some better day and night videos since image stabilization is now turned on.
I should be able to get some nice videos of top speed test with the built in gps and speed stamp on the video.

I was hoping someone would chime in with advice for the install because I am not sure about the camera placement. I have a front rack on order and might get some different GoPro mounts to mount them to the front rack and cowl guards.

First ride, image stabilization off.
It looks like I need to adjust the night vision brightens setting. It is currently on medium.

Everyone I know uses GoPro's with scooters and motorcycles (and some bicycles!) because they are made for outdoor use with weather and vibration resistance built in. There are so many dash cam company's now. I use a Momento 6 in both of my cars. As long as yours is weather proof and gets a stable image while riding its a great piece of mind no matter who makes it.
