Well I would Suggest a good quality Bullet ccd cam that you can mount on a helmet like.. humm

Both run off a 12v power source so you can wire it to the bike, but I would put a 12V regulator inline for the camera , but thats just me,

then comes the recoding issues...

and I really think im going to try the Archos 120V series device,
basically a 20GIG HDD in a mp3 player with a built in MPG4 Encoder, with A/V inputs, you can also pick up a remote on and off switch for recording, kinda nice when your on a bike and its pretty small,

I purchased a 480 res. camera. I have used it a couple times as a helmet cam. The picture quality is good, but everything looks too far away. I was riding like ten feet behind some of my bros, that were doing wheelies, etc. and it still looked far away. It might work ok if you were racing or something, and passing people. It does not work good for group riding and trying to pick up action in front of you.:(
