GoPro Goes HD Next Year.

The more you do any sport the more you want to see what you are doing and how you are doing it, well GoPro is here to help and with HD. Now some will do it to post on YouTube some to see better form and some well to be safe. The more you ride on the road for training or commuting the more you want a record of what is going on around you. Cars not giving you the amount of room you deserver (3 feet) or truck buzzing you, at least when you go the the police and show them the video, crazy you won't be called.
