  • Published on Dec 27, 2017
  • Best MotoVlog helmet setup comes from a lot of research online. I have been wanting to add test rides to my new bike videos, and maybe some motovlogs here and there. In today's video I'll show you what products my research determined was the best stuff for the job, and how to mount it all to a helmet!

    Your video is horrible and lame! your suggestions are equally lame! That crappy curved mount you are recommending is pathetic, and only fit for you and your low, low standards!
    That is a horrible gopro mount and your intelligence is too limited to realize that!!! It was a waste of money as it does not have several important minor adjustments!

    I just rewatched this video and decided to sub! I set my helmet up very similarly, but after a few months of pulling the mic adapter in and out to remove battery and scan disk card, the audio has quit working. I think its the darn $50 mic adapter. Had or heard of similar problems?

      I'm pretty sure I watched a few of his videos when I was searching this, and more recently searching Sena products. Blockhead was a huge help as well. Among many others!

    I gotta say though... if 1" is too long, and 3/4" is too short, then 5/8" is NOT gonna help you. If you wanna go between 3/4" and 1", you'll want the 7/8".

    It seems like I may have mentioned the motovloggers I watch in another video of yours, however, my memory isn't for shit lately, so if this is a repeat of information, I apologize. The motovloggers I watch the most are, Maikeli7, HarleyTrek, and BroncoRide, who all ride very nice 2017 touring Harley Davidson's, and theSymrnaCowboy, who rides a Burgman. These are a great bunch of guys; that I have had the pleasure of knowing and riding with for a few years now, when we attend meetups! Ride safe man, and keep the shiny side up!

  • BaggerBro
    BaggerBro Year ago

    You forgot to mention all your research was done by @BLOCKHEADMOTO .... DUDE YOU EVEN SAID THE SAME STUFF ABOUT CENTERING THE LENS AS HE DID... GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE DUDE!!!! NOT COOL.

    • John Maxwell
      John Maxwell  Year ago +2

      I messaged blockhead on fb to make sure I hadn’t stepped on any toes. It would make better sense if I had uploaded the audio video sooner (I crack a joke about never seeing him). The parts list probably is identical, because it’s the BEST setup, haha. Out of everyone I watched, I like the side mount chin area for sure! As far as mics go it’s the only one that works. I know for sure I got the tip from blockhead (that’s why I gave him credit) in the audio testing.
      Service interval for spark plugs is 2 years or every 30k miles. I also replace them if the ends start rusting, no needs to let all that crap into your cylinder head threads! Glad you’re enjoying my videos, and thanks for watching!

    • BaggerBro
      BaggerBro Year ago

      John Maxwell for sure. Just checkin because the parts list reads identically. Non the less your channel is super cool and so far I've watched all your content... I wish you much success in your moto vlog journeys if your ever in the Orlando area hit us up. Erick "Blockhead Crew" Hey at what mileage should i change the sparkplugs on my RoadKing Special?? Thanks

    • John Maxwell
      John Maxwell  Year ago +2

      Blockheadmoto is a standup motovlogger, for sure. He is not the only dude that mentions centering the lens by any means. At the time of filming this video I didn’t know where I learned what information. This was by no means supposed to be a rip-off of anyone’s video without giving credit. I know for a fact blockhead had great audio tips, and I give him credit for that in a video that is filmed, but not edited, yet. I just want to get info out there, not at the cost of “stealing info” I didn’t do a good job of keeping up with where I got what information, though.

  • Oto Kakhidze
    Oto Kakhidze Year ago +2

    I watch: Matt Laidlaw, Fast-Action Jax, David Cohen, Adam Sandoval Rides, Rabid Hedgehog, RidingWithTom and John Maxwell :D
    Congrats with Action Cam, in riding portion, please tell us more about characteristics = suspension, lean angle, overall handling, acceleration, seating position, handlebars, seat, footpegs or boards, lights, etc. etc.
    and when doing slo-mo description of the major parts which are highlights for that particular bike.
    would be great to make comparisons - low rider vs street bob, heritage vs deluxe, street glide vs road glide, road king classic vs road king special etc..
    I like your channel, keep posting with cool sense of humor, dirty thumbs up John! ))

      Free is good! That’s how iMovie is for Apple products. Check RU-clip for tutorials, and you’ll be on your way in no time. I’ve only been doing this a few months. So far it’s not hard, just time consuming.

      I bit the bullet and went Final Cut Pro about 2 months ago. You can tell in my video quality! Before that I was iMovie on my iPad. A lot of it depends on what you already have. I already had an iPad to get going on. Do you have PC or MaC? Know what I mean?

Some of but not all of my favorites are Touring Midwest, Maikeli7, Ridin' Country, NC Stoney, Ryan Urlacher, Motorcyclefreedom, Low Country Harley Davidson (Doc Harley) ,and some guy that claims to be a highly trained unprofessional. There a lot more but those just popped in my head. You get your big dirty thumbs up !! RFTC.

      Thanks! I hope you and yours also had a great one. I have worn a full face for years while riding for work, but a half helmet for my own bikes. I suppose I’ll be using this one for both, now. Just depends on whether or not I want to film I guess.

    Shadetree surgeon uses a mike that costs five bucks that seems to work really good, he describes his set when he puts his girlfriends helmet together for her.

      I’ll check it out. The hero 5 doesn’t work as well with some of the cheaper ones. By the time I realized that, I’d already bought the 5. I guess a lot of guys had a “clipping” problem.

    I got myself a new Biltwell Gringo S for Christmas! I watch Adam Sandoval and Matt Laidlaw. Most of the others out there just ride around bitching about what bothers them. They sound like whiney little girls. Not the kinda riders I associate myself with. Hopefully you have some original content. I've really enjoyed your shop vids.

      While I have plenty of complaining to do, you guys will likely not ever hear it! I’d rather send off positive vibes into the World Wide Web, there’s enough complaining! Hopefully instead of sitting at a picnic table I’ll be on a bike more often!

    Happy New Year John...! I watch you, Matt Laidlaw, and Maikeli7 (he's a motovloger on a 2017 Ultra Classic with stage IVkit). That helmet rig ought to work like a champ!

      Those are all good ones. Laidlaw puts out a TON of info! I wish I had the time to be so in depth!

      I’ll have to look up those guys. I have heard of John Maxwell. He puts out pretty good stuff, haha

    Can’t wait to hear the mic setup. That’s probably the number one problem with motovloging. I still don’t like my mic setup. The wind noise is a killer.

      I know for the Hero 4, you can get a 6, 10 or 12 hour battery that replaces the back cover. I got the 6 hour and it works great! Maybe it'll fit the 3...?

      Same here, I fell for the RKS the moment I saw it last year......Going to ring 4 or 5 more years out of the Vic though, but at this point the RKS is tops on my list of replacement rides.

      John Maxwell trade every possession....I know exactly what you mean.

    • John Maxwell
      John Maxwell  Year ago

      I watched your review of the road king special, clearly you liked it. Surprised you liked the handlebars, though! That’s easily my favorite. Soon as they announced it last year I was al over it. I kinda got caught up in the softail models, but it was actually your review that reminded me how great that bike is. I haven’t ridden one in awhile, so seeing your video I was like “ah, I remember trying to trade every possession in on this last year...”

      John Maxwell I watch all your stuff as well! Great job, and I’m a big fan of working on motorcycles or anything with an engine 😁

      No worries! It’s coming, haha. Maybe not next, but it’s coming! I’ve checked a few things. I’m really worried I’m going to sound like I’m in a big bubble! Oh wait. I am in a big bubble...

    Looks like a pretty good setup. Can't wait to see the results. Shawn Smoak is my favorite motovlogger by far. Great vids, and probably the best as far as quality of the sound and the video. His daily vlog channel is great too. Also watch Jake the Snake quite a bit. And I've been watching BLOCKHEAD a lot recently.

    • John Maxwell
      John Maxwell  Year ago

      That shipping gets crazy! Those Sony mics have great reviews. I’ll have to check out your video!

    • John Maxwell
      John Maxwell  Year ago

      I found his “audio fix” video last night, so definitely less figuring now! I had seen his helmet setup video, which once I saw more and more people using that setup, it was on!

    • John Maxwell
      John Maxwell  Year ago +1

      Jake the snake was helpful with the helmet setup. I’ll have to check out Shawn Smoak, maybe he has some audio tips, haha! Thanks for watching and commenting!

      John Maxwell exactly lol. when i think of HD bikes, i think of chopper types of bikes. And the fatboy pops into my head lol. Its a classic look

    • John Maxwell
      John Maxwell  Year ago +1

      I’m not a fan of 240 rear tires. They look good, but handle like shit. That Fatboy S is a hard bike not to like!

    • Juan V
      Juan V Year ago

      John Maxwell i love the 17 fatboy S. Especially in all black. Not a big fan if the new 18s. Something about the headlight. Looks funny lol like its all fused together. U know? Maybe when HD comes out with a an Black version for the new ones i might get it

    • John Maxwell
      John Maxwell  Year ago +1

      Which Fatboy do you like? 17 and earlier or the new 18s?
