I bought a Go Pro from Rocky Mountain ATV a month or so ago. Used it at Glamis and Ocotillo Wells and it does a great job. I bought a 16GD card because the 4 that came with it filled up pretty quick. The battery expectancy is good and to charge it all I have to do is plug it into the laptop USB. The price of $179, no tax and free shipping is a good deal. It would be a little less if you can find a discount coupon online. Also, you can look at some more reviews on the Go Pro here http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/produ ... lyId=30013

Just picked up a Gopro hd wide when we bought our kid a new KTM 50 SX a couple weeks ago, they gave us a great deal on one for buying the bike. Excellent unit. Very versatile. Picture is incredible.
