I'm not debating. I'm just sharing what I heard from some guy at the track. He knows about this stuff.

I stopped by the shop today. To sum everything up, that's the type of shop I like walking into! As soon as we step in, we were greeted. Talked to Angie and one of the owners. Very nice people, traded great stories. Looking forward to visiting this shop more, now that I know about it!

From the videos I have seen side by side the GoPro is a much clearer picture and much brighter. Check on youtube and see the comparisons. I bought the go pro2 after my own research and love everything about it except the 2 hour battery life....but for $20 you get a extra battery, not to bad. My Vlogs are all shot with a go pro if you want to see real world quality.

Naturally the go pro has a clearer picture. The fast guys use contours, everything is blurry at those speeds.

I personally have a gopro, and if you haven't figured it out yet I'm giving David a hard time.

Yes he is! I like my Contour. I do wish the video quality was better, but it's worth the trade off in my opinion.

Yawpz! I haven't been to too many shops around the area because there aren't that many plus I just hear bad reviews about them. I sure wouldn't like to take my money to a business that doesn't even acknowledge you when you walk in. Hey, I could be looking to buy 3 bikes that day! but not from you guys!
