Many motorcycle riders like to record their motorcycle trips on to a video. It's one of the largest number of YouTube Open link in a new windowposting. Having a look at those twisties, or your wheelie at 120 mph, is something that interests many bikers.

The problem is that you can't hold a camcorder while riding, or fixing it to your motorcycle is too limiting. The only logical place to put a camera is on your helmet. There are plenty of helmetcams out there, but they all suffer a few weaknesses, the main one if the wind drag, but also the head is not the most stable recorder platform out there.

Hands free camera
