    I liked my first BikerCam so much that I bought a second one to replace a GoPro Hero 3 Black that I was using in another vehicle as a dash cam and as a helmet cam with my bike. Now both vehicles are using the BikerCam (sharing one with my bike) and they are performing extremely well.

    Video quality is excellent. These cameras are so small that they can be mounted easily just about anywhere. I’ve mounted mine high on the windshield behind the rear view mirror. Both are connected to a 12v source and turn on/off with the key. The GoPro required turning it on, waiting for the beeps, then pressing the record button. Not at all difficult, but the BikerCam requires none of those steps.

    I’ve noticed that one of the BikerCams displays the date/time stamp in the lower right corner of the video and has the running time as the video plays. The other BikerCam does not display the date/time this way and only has it stamped as a static time on the video file name. Still trying to figure out why they’re different.

    Overall, I’m very happy with both of my BikerCams and would highly recommend them to anyone needing a small, lightweight helmet or dash cam.

    I got this because it’s relatively small, didn’t want a massive gopro sticking off the side of my helmet. And it’s fairly decent, lots of mounting and wiring options come with it, picture quality isn’t great but doesn’t need to be (good luck reading license plates), but the main setback which is reeeally irritating is that the timestamp is wrong. As another user said, it comes set an hour before. I tried setting the date and time 4 times with the manual’s instructions but it kept reverting to 1/1/2014 and various times. The video won’t be useless, but if you’re showing the insurance company or a judge, you will not be able to pin down exactly when the incident happened. Also seems like the instructions were written by a chinese dude.

    I purchased this camera after reading about it in American Iron magazine. Rather than use it to record sightseeing for posterity and sharing, my primary use is to have it on in case some idiot in a cage turns left in front of me or does something else to cause an accident, with hopes that the camera will survive the accident and provide specifics on what happened. Accordingly, I use the camera in Moto mode so it starts recording as soon as the bike is started.

    I’m currently using this camera with my 2017 H-D FLHXSE CVO Street Glide. I have it mounted on the right front engine guard towards the top, just below the lower fairing mount, with the power provided by a 12V to USB converter wired into the bike’s electrical system. This system worked flawlessly until recently, when I noticed the camera was no longer powering up. Turns out the connector within the camera and the cable itself were bad. I contacted John with Tachyon support and he processed the return and provided a replacement camera and cable, so I consider Tachyon customer service to be OUTSTANDING.

    One note, when I start my motorcycle, the bike’s electrical system is momentarily shut off (I believe to dedicate all power to the starter). Once bike is started, all the electrical accessories are again powered. I’ve noticed that the BikerCam does not always recover from the momentary loss/reapplication of power (as evidenced by the red RECORD indicator going out). In those cases, the BikerCam must be rebooted to start recording again by momentarily pulling out and reinserting the power cable.

    Recently purchased & installed the Bikercam for my Harley Sportster, and it’s a small & sleek solution. I set it to moto “police” mode (time stamp, looping, 15-min clips) as my main use for this is a dash cam, and it works flawlessly.

    As soon as I turn on the ignition, the camera turns on and records, and when I turn the bike off, it stops recording and shuts off… perfect solution if you just want to set it and forget it. And whenever I travel to the city, I am able to easily & quickly remove the camera from its case.

    The 1080p quality is great, and the camera adjusts to all lighting conditions. The only issue I had was formatting the micro-SD card on my Mac, but once I did it as FAT32 and 32kb on a PC, it worked like a charm.

    All in all, this camera is definitely worth the price for its motorcycle-focused functionality, size, durability (and waterproof case) & quality.
