    I use the GoPro HD2. Great videos and the I use the time lapse for longer rides then edit to a slideshow. You'll need to find a good "deshaker" program to smooth out the videos from the vibration or head/hand movement. The only problem I had so far was a windshield mount that broke while I was on the needles hwy last summer. Luckily I noticed the camera tilting down and grabbed it before it fell off. I always tether the camera now. The HD3 sounds great but I bought mine before it came out. If I were to buy one today I would go with the HD3.

    I have a GoPro Silver that takes great video. It worked great on VISTA and Windows 7; however, I cannot get it to work on WINDOWS 8. I would discourage you from going with Windows 8. Stay with VISTA or Windows 7, Better yet... APPLE.

    I use a Contour +2 and edit it with iMovies. Works great although they no longer make them but did hear they are trying to start back up.

    I use a small JVC digital camcorder mounted with a RAM mount to the engine guard, it produces a rock steady video with no vibration. The only problem is there is no moving it while riding.

    I have a GoPro Hero 3+ silver, and I love it. It takes great photos and video. GoPro are built to last. Just look up some videos of sky divers that knock them off them helmets when getting out of the plane.
    Here is one that has a funny ending.

    I posted in this thread http://www.motocampers.com/forums/sh...ht=#post135359 about my GoPro experience. Worth looking at.

    Jimmarby: I noticed you have a Victory. I have a Harley with engine guard and wonder if your cycle vibrates like mine, or similar. Tried mounting a camera similar to yours on the handlebars, and it shook so bad it was annoying to watch.

    Hi LeakyGasket, actually my bike is a 2012 Kawasaki Vulcan Voyager but from the little bit of it showing in the picture I can see how it could be mistaken for a Victory. Even hough the Kawasaki is a 1700 V twin there is just a slight amount of vibration and the videos from the engine guard don't show any vibration at all. Originally I had the camera on my handlebars and there was a lot of vibration but as I mover it to the center of the bar it calmed down a lot but still not as good as the engine guard.

    Here is a link to one of my videos as seen from the engine guard mount.

    I have a Sena SPH10H-FM bluetooth headset currently and love it, but Sena is set to release their newest headset soon, the 10C, which includes a built in camera that will allow you to add audio (from both you and others you are communicating with) to your recordings. If I didn't have to replace two tires first thing this season, I wouldn't think twice about pulling the trigger on the 10C. Solid company with excellent customer service and support. Here's a link to the 10C if you're interested: http://www.sena.com/product/intercoms/10c/
