    I have been thinking of doing this with the back-up camera's at wal mart for $79.00 I see some company is already working on it. I think it would be awsome to see behind you.

    USA biike motors has a camera on a trike they have built, the only down fall is that you cant really see the screen in the daylight sun. but this would be sweet, if you can see it i would likely use one too, so keep us posted, good luck!!!

    but I wonder about vibration - I couldn't mount my cam anywhere on the bike w/o problems and it even has some compensating ability...

    More bells & whistles... I ride in some of the fastest & heaviest traffic in the country, & I don't even need mirrors. A quick glance over the shoulder & I know whats there!
    I think something like that (camera & screen)on a bike is just one more thing to distract you from watching the road ahead!!

    Did you guys read that "road kill at 28MPH thread"??
    The guy was too busy looking at the side of the road for bottles & cans, & also looking in his mirror at what's behind him & ended up hitting something right in front of him!!! (which is where we should be looking!) ;)

    Exactly!

    [Dr. Evil voice] Is it too much to ask to get a bike with freekin' lasers mounted on the handlebars?! [/Dr. Evil voice]

    Bells and whistles are fun though. My bike is getting mirror, led lighting, GPS for speedo and occasional directions (when I'm across country), and even a motor! ZOMG BELLS AND WHISTLES!!!!
