Depends on if you want HD or not - can't really get much cheaper than this for an HD cam.

Oh, and the case on this camera will fair much better than you or your bike will in a tuffle. These things are tough!

I loved the sweet arc on the left sweeper overpass and then the rightside pass of the "widowmaker"

What city was that?

In my opinion, the M1 rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.

I'm not sure, its not my video. This guy is on another forum I visit, I think he is in Idaho somewhere.

I ended up buying one of these last Monday. I got a faulty camera the play back video sucked and it was really grainy then I had trouble getting the videos to download and play on my computer, I ended up returning it yesterday. I'll probably buy another one in a couple weeks, they are pretty nice cameras for the price.

It looks like I'll be getting a mesh riding jacket today though.

Think I'll just keep using my phone for now, my computers at home suck which would make it impossible to upload from them

Got the mount for my phone yesterday, it will take some modding, but it should work, just need to figure out how to kill the wind blast on the mic.

Nothing wrong with that man. Do you have a link for the phone mount? I might try it out too.

This is a really cheap one and like I said is going to require some reengineering, but at this price I can keep hacking them up till I get it right, this is on amazon.com, there's a whole pile of them in all price ranges, I just did a search for "iPhone motorcycle mount"

Also I have the 3GS with the full Otter box, it fits pretty tight but I figure I'll throw on an extra strap just to make sure my phone doesnt end up splattered on the highway
