Honestly, I'd say you'd be better off getting a compact camera and looking to mount that. If you've got a DSLR you've presumably got a lot more glass showing than a compact, which means a much bigger area for things pinging off the road to hit. You've also got a lot of weight to shift around if you hit a bump. A compact camera won't bounce around so much, has a smaller front element, and if the worst happens and it bounces off the road will cost a lot less to replace.
