Camera is awesome, came off track car at 130MPH and kept recording, used underwater, on bike, on surf board. I bought one for my brother too (competitive downhill skateboarder)
I have an 1st & 2nd gen GoPro's also...not getting used at the moment.
I only ride on track so I safety wire/tether the case to the bike so it won't fall off.

If I go down without one I'm going to be pissed. If I go down, I at least want video proof...haha.

I find I only use 720p, for monitors and regular sized tv's it all looks the same to me.
I'm with you, it saves space and the quality is still great.

The 2nd gen is the new model. 1st gen went up to 720p 2nd gen goes up to 1080p and there are also some other lil differences as well

It's where you an an opponent attempt to ride a skateboard down a hill. Then when your wheels get stuck in the first 6 inches you see who slides the farthest on their face.

Hey! I've done that a couple times!lol not a very fun sport. Gopro does that drawing to win one of everything they make every day. I've heard rumors that real people actually win....

Ouch!

I paid ~$215 for my GoPro HD Motorsports package, which is about £130. 58cycle was a good site that had them cheap, as did RiderDiscounts, but I ended up saving the most money by getting it on eBay.
