    So last night, a brainstorm hit me...............

    I have a cheap, digital camera that's not all that intrusive, so I decided to test it today to see if it would work okay as a helmet cam. The testing I did just consisted of having my goggle strap hold it to the helmet since I didn't want to mess around with the velcro just yet.

    Give me a mountain bike and I'll pull some wheelies.

    Let me borrow your truck and I'll pull some donuts.

    I've already done an incredibly stupid thing by being a nOOb dirt bike rider and buying that beast that I did, I don't have to add on to the dumb:haha:

    need to make a figure 8 track, its better than going in circles.

    my dad bought an oregon scientific ATC-1000 a while back. works well, just hard to secure it to the helmet at the right angle.

    yea, its preaty easy to use. just push a button to start it, push the same button to stop. then plug in a cable from the camera to the TV and you can watch what you just recorded. there are 2 other buttons, i think they are for seeking (forward and rewind). i havn't played with it too much. its easy to get on the comp also, just like any other digital camera ive used.

    ill have to look what my dad has on him comp and upload it.
