thanks in advance

To film yourself riding roads or the track, you will like the wide lens.
To film other riders, you want the regular lens.
Spend the extra money on the HD camera.
They come with several mounts that use a double sided tape that work well.

I second the opinion on the HD camera....I recently got it and love it. You can change the angle from wide to narrow on the HD. I ordered mine off of ebay and got it $50 cheaper than Cycle Gear (new in box)

Thomasninja650 has one that does pretty good. I think he paid $30. He posts a lot of vids on here using that cam.

I got this in today and it's really not half bad AT ALL. I can't wait to use it on the bike to see what's up. Although a bit confusing (especially since it only has two buttons). So word to the wise.. Don't try to read the directions.. lol.. Use the video above.
