My GoPro HD has been one of my favorite purchases in regards to my motorcycles. We go on some good rides that I want to be able to look back on later, or show friends of mine back home what I do out here track and street. Its well worth the money if you can get it for a good price. I got mine on sale for about 220 full kit. Do it, you won't regret it, if you do then sell it lol

I talked to 2 guys at the track who had owned the GoPro, which they said was nice but they could not stop raving about this.

Tjey said the video quality is amazing, it has GPS, has the red laser light for mounting to ensure its at the right angle, and it also has a wireless feed to your phone so you can see how the camera is mounted and ensure perfect video without it being crooked and not find out till you get home. Operation is easy too. just a sliding off/on button so there is no question whether its on or off. They run about the same price but i think to have GGPS on it it cost a little bit more.
