Justin will get you one by Friday, you'll just have to pay extra for express shipping. Should be pretty cheap though, the thing only weighs about a pound.

Assuming I'm riding, I'll be @ the track early Fri morn. Would need a Thursday ship but I'd rather go somewhere local to buy it and have it in my hands
We'll see what happens, If I don't get one by Friday, I'll just be shopping around till my next TD. Thanks for the info. I may give Justin a shout.

Not sure. Email him and see. I sent a guy from the CMRA board and he seems very pleased with the deal Justin gave him.

$130-$200 depending on if you get the regular lens, wide angle lens, and what, if any mounting kit you get for it.

I just found one on ebay for $155 with the wide angle lens and the "motorsports" mounting kit.

You guys really like the wide angle view? I think it distorts things too much. Is there something that is a little narrower?

Thanks for the info. I just remembered a zx-10r.net member has a slick deal running on these. Only problem is I won't get it by Friday. O well.

Will do, hopefully he can beat the discount the guy on the 10R forum is giving the members so I can have it this weekend if I need it. . .

I have one and like it alot. The video quality is pretty good and the audio is alright with the right settings. Haven't tried helmet mounting it but have a couple points on the bike, seems real secure. My only complaint is without using Energizer Lithium batteries it doesn't last long, with the lithium i've got about an hour of footage.

Bought it from here, pretty sure this is the best price when you put in the word HERO at the checkout it becomes $155 shipped.
