camcorders and helmet cams

My buddy has got a Tony hawk helmet cam, so far it has been a piece of crap. It shuts off by its self all the time and the video and sound are terrible.

I would like to get something a little better. We don't do stunts, alot of the footage I want to take would be on the bike.

I thought a cheap miniDV cam, but it would probably be too big to use, I guess the best solution is a actual helmet cam feeding to a camcorder?

Anyone got any ideas.

Thanks Gastro, by the way, I love your "one less horse" designation. In my forest, shawnee, the equines outnumber bikers 10,000 to 1. Can't quite figure out what is fun about riding a horse around in the woods.
