I had a Thread like this a while ago. I've been shopping for a Camera for the longest time. The problem you run into is finding a mount that will work for your bike. For example, if you are into Performance riding you cannot get a gas tank mount because it eliminates your tuck.

GoPro dominates this area and thats why they are highly reccomended. If you can find a mount that will work for your bike, I would get a different camera for better quality and something with a view finder to see what you are shooting.

FWIW I have a Flip Camera and a GoPro HD. I use my GoPro HD for the bike and the Flip for "point and shoot". Hope this helps.

Although I have not tried them yet, there is a site that sells "heavy duty" suction cups. Depending on how big a risk taker you are, you can try one and see if they work well.

I personally want a gopro but at the same time want a regular HD camcorder for other purposes. I think you will get the same output not-so-great output if you upload it to youtube whatever way you go.

That being said, gopro might just be a better cam for the bike.

The gopro comes with a real sterdy suction cup mount, I've used mine on both back roads and the track and have not had a single problem with it, just FYI

I say get a gopro, it's one awesome little camera to say the least and is pretty well priced

I have talked with another member on here that has one and he has literally used the suction cup mount of the gopro in every possible place on his bike and he didnt tell me anything about it failing. He told me that if other than on some edged places it will stick and stay there.

I think gopro's lightweight makes the suction cup's job lots easier compared to putting a small camcorder on a suction cup mount.

I think that Motorcycle Consumer News had a big comparison review on that a couple months ago, if you want to look it up.
