Save $20 on DeluxeCAM motorcycle camera mount


Shoot pictures or video through the windshield or around it – your choice!

How?

Superior Positioning: The DeluxeCAM motorcycle camera mount can be mounted just about anywhere (we have mounts for Gold Wing and Harley-Davidson switch housings; round bars from ¾” to 1.25”, BMW reservoirs, and even flat surfaces).

Go Short or go Tall: Choose one of FOUR different heights ranging from 3 inches to 9 inches! The 6- and 9-inch options feature not one but TWO swivel points. (This is in addition to the 12-point mounting bracket.)

So you really CAN control every angle (just for kicks, try taking some video to your rear!). And the UltraSecure feature ensures the camera will never fall off, no matter how crazy your angle.

The DeluxeCAM is available in all-black or with chrome hardware. It is easy to install (see our Demo Video) – no special tools required – and MADE IN THE USA.

AND, for a limited time, you can SAVE $20 on any DeluxeCAM motorcycle camera mounting kit (min $100). Use code FEAT-CAM when checking out.

For more details, and to view Installation Videos as well as Demo Videos, check out our Motorcycle Camera Mounting Guide, or jump straight to DeluxeCAM Motorcycle Camera Mounts.

Cold Weather Motorcycle Riding: Free Guide

Here in Minnesota, we'd have a very short season if we only rode our motorcycles in warm weather. But we don't enjoy ourselves when we're stiff and shivering. Our products (many patented and manufactured in cold Minnesota!) are intended to make cold-weather motorcycling more comfortable and enjoyable.

For more tips on riding in the cold, check out our cold-weather motorcycling guide. It includes helpful suggestions for every part of your body!

  • Legs & Feet: Sometimes boots alone don't cut it. Check out other ways your feet and legs can be protected from wind and rain.

  • Torso: We offer a little-known tip on using heated jackets to their fullest potential!

  • Hands: Sure, there's the old standby: bulky riding gloves or even heated gloves. But check out a suggestion that will keep you warmer without compromising your ability to grip and steer the motorcycle.

It can all be found in What you Need to Ride in the Cold!

Kudos for Desert Dawgs motorcycle rain guards

Do you ever wonder if there are still companies that do what they say they will?

We do! Just ask Terry, who sent us a very nice email:

I just purchased a set of Desert Dawgs Rain Guards for my 2006 Harley Road King Classic. I ordered them on Tuesday and they arrived on Friday in time for me to ride 200 miles on Sunday.

I chose the ones without the studs as my Road King does not have studs on the leather. They look GREAT! They actually blend in with the bike and are hardly noticed. They do exactly what you advertize. They are a piece of cake to install, block the wind and keep water and dirt off the riders legs.

It is nice to know there are companies that do exactly what they say they will do.

Your service was excellent as well. I was really happy to get my Dawgs before I rode last weekend. Just thought you would like to know you have a happy customer.


Now is a great time to get your own set of Desert Dawgs motorcycle rain guards.

Daytona Bike Week Kick-off Special



The official start of motorcycle season is upon us: Daytona Bike Week kicks off TODAY!

We are envious of those headed to the warmer climate for some biker fun (we are still in the single-digits with three feet of snow on the ground here in Minnesota).

In honor of Daytona Bike Week, you can save $20 on any eCaddy LITE mounting kit for phone, iPod, MP3, etc - quite likely the simplest, most classy way to mount phones or iPod on a motorcycle! (regular price $49.99 to $85.99)

WILL IT WORK FOR YOU?

If your phone or MP3 has a case or holster that includes a belt clip on the back, the answer is YES, you can mount your phone or iPod with the eCaddy LITE.

It's so simple! You slide the belt clip of your case/holster into the notch on the eCaddy Lite until it "clicks" into place.

If you don't have a case - or you just want extra protection against rain - add the Caddy Buddy waterproof pouch.
