I'm a lousey photographer, I see wonderful things but my cameras never match my eyes, with my eyes I can scan, zoom, focus and color balance, but when I try to do all those things with a camera I end up with rubbish, I have a couple of bike cameras but wherever I ride with one it just looks like road..

and rain..

Go Pro. Get one. I usually suction mount mine to the tank though other mounts are possible. Lots of was to take pictures and video. Strap it on, turn it on and forget it.

Iv'e got the Hero 2 and it works great. I'm not the best at getting things edited but Iv'e got the video when I have a chance. I've got about 40 Hours of video and I don't know what to do with it. But at least I've got it. Great Video.

Here's a fun example of what a GoPro video can be like on a motorcycle.

You'd almost think that was a sport bike!

Number One: I am a Video Production Professional, over 25 years of experience.

Number Two: I won my GoPro and everything they make it for through their contest on Facebook.

I shoot video, as if I see something I really like, I will stop and use my Digital Camera for that, zoom lens, exposure controls, etc.

The new GoPro 3 has Wifi Built in, but you can get a WiFi Back for the GoPro 2 that will send the Image, on a slight delay, to your Smartphone. You can start/stop, set up, etc. all from the phone.

Like others, I would say set, and then forget it until the ride is over, especially with video. Still frames I would do the same, but I would want a remote that is close to the Handle Bars to snap the shots, like the WiFi Remote. Make sure you set the camera up so it doesn't turn off after a time of inactivity.

I do a lot of shooting like you guys will do, one ride, one camera angle, no editing. I also do a lot more with multiple Angles, having a camera op on the back seat, and stopping and doing passing shots.

Remember your first priority, YOU ARE RIDING! Taking pictures may not even be the second thing you are doing!

What assesories would you recomend and would it really be worth the money? Safety is #1. No photo in the world would be worth an accident. Any recomendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Get a go pro.. shoot while riding.. repeat and enjoy you'll survive.. and if not..it probably won't have a thing to do with picture or video taking
