Arrow Dash cam question

One of my friend has a Rexing Dash cam on his k1600 BMW and the filming quality is exceptional.
I am in process of ordering on line , and looks that for around $ 250 I Can get a good one with all the weasels and jingles .What is what you are using and How happy you are.
I am not even half way but This sport is getting more expensive daily.

I put an Innovv K1 on my K1600GT last year and have had no issues and was pretty easy to install both cameras and the DVR. I don't believe the K1 is available any longer as its been replaced with the K2 model. It's good to have the peace of mind it's recorded if I get hit, but the cameras don't make other drivers more cautious, but the red light on my helmet cam will help with that

Folks also have helmet mounted cams. Is there an advantage of one over the other? Or, is this a just personal preference thing?

It's mostly a preference thing. My son has the helmet mount go pro that requires periodic removal for charging but he can capture video in any direction he is looking. I prefer front and rear mounted cameras that turn on/off when I cycle the ignition key so I don't have to think about camera setup and maintenance in comparison to helmet mounted.

Re helmet cams, some jurisdictions don't allow them as the authorities claim the camera mount can compromise the helmet integrity.

Have a look at these reviews:

Top 10 Dash Cam For Motorcycle - Best of 2018 | 59,094 Reviews Scanned | SheKnows

Mine is permanently mounted and wired to start with the ignition, just like a dash cam, and set up to overwrite the oldest recording when the card is full. It is the best set and forget option.
My stomach lurches every time a helmet cam rider looks sideways.

Please let us know how you like it. I currently use a Mobius Actioncam https://www.amazon.com/Mobius-Action.../dp/B00DP1WYD2 which is infinitely adjustable via free downloadable software. The only issue I have is that at 55mph+ the wind noise drowns the audio.
