Sorry for the vague info but only reason why I posted is to test if its worth setting up a GB.

I am trying to work out quantity and price with the company...so as soon as I get an update on the price breakdown, you guys will know too...Sorry about the delay.

I am getting the consensus that everyone wants the GP HD. IMO is the best one...So I'll setup for that.

As it stands the retail is $299.00 HD Motorsports HERO.
So I'll find out exact price when I get an update.

I'll try to get the GB setup for Monday....

thanks guys

if it's the HD one, then I'd be interested. I almost jumped on the riders discounts one for 212, but was short on cash then. Now that christmas has come and gone, and i returned all the crap I didn't want, i've got some moola.

This is true, it's small but the design makes it quite bulky.

Bullet cameras are by far the best for motor sports, but the video quality of the GoPro is pretty darn good.

I guess it comes down to preference.

BTW I have a GoPro HD, a Standard Contour, a Standard MotoComm and an Oregon Scientific ATC.

They all have their strengths and weaknesses.

These are my video cameras:

what I really want to do is take it apart and install the camera into my helmet or something

Leave a little wire hanging out which I connect the recorder to but all seem to bulk to put inside the helmet

yeah I was looking into them but there are no HD spy cameras. Not to mention, I doubt the video quality would be very good.

there are ppl who do take slim point and shoot camera's and stick them in their helmet to do motorcycle vlogs. plenty of them on youtube. i used to be one of them till i crashed and broke my two front teeth as a result back in 2007.

i still have the vids up if you want to see em BB at livevideo.com/jonnyfranx.
