I have one and I am very impressed with the quality. The most effective mounting method I have found is the roll bar mount that can be purchased separately. The camera didn't move while pre running the rock garden that was the Mint...I would get the 170 degree camera as well. I have a friend with the narrow vision unit and the field of view is to narrow.

Cody, I love the GoPro.. There are several ways that work very well. We used the adhesive mounts and they worked well, and at the San Felipe 250, I saw a Class one with it stuck on the roof! still there at race mile 168 haha. Even the suction works well if its a smooth, clean surface..

They also make a handle bar clamp on mount, which I'm going to get for my dirt bikes. it would be fairly easy to use that of a tube in the car somewhere.

In short, they ALL work really well.

I am currently looking at the system because it is very cheap and looks like it has great quality. Does anyone else have this setup? What is the best way to mount it? Thanks

I use this camera... I love it. Cheap and easy to mount. Easier to download. Check out my video posted on here in the tube section. Or on Youtube:

Go Pro....

Love them

I have a couple moto videos cut together with them.

I rode one on my mot helmet for 1050 miles in Jan and rode all of San Felipe pre running with it. I even stuck my head in the dirt with it on with no issues. Then I mounted one to the pre runner and it made it all the way.

If you take 10 min to read the instructions it is really easy to switch modes and the footage looks pretty sick for a $200 or less investment.

i just bought 1 last week , with the roll bar mount . i stuck it to the back window of my pickup and drove arround then down loaded the video. it was easy .then i went to a plastics shop and got soe roll offs from the local KTM shop to build a clear lense system i think its a great bet for the money

Unfortunately the little camera cannot do more than 3hrs tops with it's internal battery no matter what memory it could handle. I'd like to see it take 16gb cards and have an external power source.

I use the regular one I bought a long time ago. And I bought the Wrist mount at Marshals of all places for 39 dollars. The wrist mount tourned out kind of nice because you can strap it around any tubing.
The camera is not made for doing super high quality video and there are not a lot of adjustments. It is a good cheap camera!

They're great!

Low price-139.95-199.95 depending on mounts(we have the 139.95 model, but it's not on the website yet)
Sealed water proof case, so the dust won't hurt it
No wires, runs on batteries
Will take still images, has setting to take a still every 5 seconds
Uses 2g sd cards

They're will be a firmware update for the Wide angle model that will double the record time.

We alsways have them on the trailer, stop by at the TT250 and we'll show you how they work.
