    Motorcycle dash cams

    Hey fellas, I want to get a continuous recording dash cam mounted on the bike. I have no idea which are decent, it seems there are many for motorcycles. Looking for recommendations for a camera that mounts front and rear and has at least 5 hours continuous recording capability. Don't care about a live view of it, just want to record my riding just in case. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

    Vandal if I may add once you select a make /model of camera do additional research on what SD card has been proven to work best in the model you choose, otherwise you may end up with failing SD cards over and over again. Card capacity and Card speed should not be the only considerations.

    Good luck!

    High Endurance SD Cards

    Flash memory has a finite number of write cycles. This is a real issue with dash and security cameras, where new footage continuously overwrites the oldest. High Endurance SD cards cost more, but are recommended for dashcams as they're designed to handle more write cycles.

    My son put a cheap SD card in his dashcam and wore it out in about a year. You don't want to try downloading important video to your PC, only to discover that parts of it are corrupted!

    Cant say enough about the INNOVV system, the quality is excellent. My lawyer said this was the game changer as usually whenever someone hits a motorcycle in the rear they say that the bike cut in front of them at the last minute your word against theirs. Here's the video of the impact

    Are they pretty easy to install and mount? Going to get the K2 for my F6b

    Saw this on Amazon. Looked it up on other sites and most all reviews were 4 Stars or better.

    * Just found a post on ADVRIDER with the same unit (different name) and some detailed experience with the product.

    Looks like this one is a keeper and I'll probably be getting and installing on my "B".

    The hardest part is taking off the Tupperware on the bike, it's plug and play, made a video.
