or an expensive camera with stabilisation just strap a chicken to the handlebars and fasten the camera to its head?

Got myself a chicken to try this but couldn't find the head once I'd removed all the packaging: did it need to be free range?

why has this person holding a chicken in a bedroom?
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

I only had a male chicken available, so I tied my camera to my cock.

I got some really stable video of my petrol tank.
