What is Best Video Rig for Track Bike?

I am looking for suggestions on the best video rig for my track bike.

Currently I run a SportbikeCam mount with a stabilized, video camera. I get GREAT images with it, however, I find that it inhibits my riding, since the camera is ON the tank.

I'd like to get a system that allows me to record from a bullet cam. I actually will put a front and rear facing bullet cam on the bike, with a swithc to allow me to toggle which one is the source.

I have heard about DVR solutions, solid state solutions, and also about video cameras in the tail section.

I am looking for a high-quality solution that allows the easiest method of recording and dumping the video. I do not want to have to take the tail section off every time that I access the device. Also, it would need to be covered, since I plan on basically leaving it in... rain and all.

Anyhow, I think I heard of AVROS (name?) and a couple of others. There are even a couple of systems, like DAVID that can overlay data from the speedo, RPM, braking etc...

Or this system from http://www.vdlmotorsports.com/

Anyone have any ideas or experience here?

Thanks for any suggestions...
