Honestly unless you're really into heavy video post processing, the 2 would suffice just fine. The 3 has some interesting features but for the casual user the 2 would suffice. I'm sure you can find a 2 for a pretty decent price while the 3's are running around $400 here in the states.
Well, I bought a new Hero 3 and a 64GB card to use on my upcoming European road trip. First mistake, the 64GB card cannot be formatted so that I can view my films on my iPad (which I want to do while on the trip) so I bought a 32GB card. That works okay but I've yet to fit the mounts and use it on my scoot. Will post up when I have something interesting to look at!
I have a GoPro Hero HD and even it does almost anything that a person would want. The only real shortcoming in actual use that I see between my camera and my riding buddies GoPro 3 Black is the Wifi feature. I would like to have that but it is not worth that much money to me to get it.

Another huge advantage that the Hero 3 has for me is that it uses a microsd card, same as my android phone... so after recording an hour of video, I was able to move the card from my camera to phone and watch the video. No choppiness, issues, truly amazing for me. Phone is an HTC Sensation.
I have a GP 3 , 16gb card is big nough for me as thats about as long as the battery lasts.
My biggest issue is knowing if it's on or off, he light is hard to see on the bike. I used a ram mount on the brake/clutch and fixed the GP mount to it.
Had a cople of rides where the mount was vibrating against the cover o had an annoying rattle, but worked it out now.
Wold love to have a way to play back like the htc , but iPhone sucks for that.
Steve looking forward to this years video and to keep on discussion, here's my journey home. Sort of boring, but about same distance and time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7CtYc4wk8E, should add its on my FJR not b650
@vince224 and I got a little sidetracked in the thread For those who have installed SpeedoHealers..., where he posted:
Rather than continue to wander off-topic there, I'll continue that discussion here.
The video, from 2017, that I posted in that thread ...
... was made with a GoPro Hero 4...
