    Ws,

    It is Contour+ camera mounted on my helmet. It is a small camera that can record in HD1080p resolution. I mainly purchased it as it could record the GPS coordinates and publish them nicely on the web with location, speed and altitude.

    Watch the same video in more details here:

    Contour | Stories | Islamabad Zero Point to Rawalpindi Saddar

    It comes with mounting kit that sticks pretty nicely on any kind of helmet and I have tested it against speeds of 150km/h. I bought the camera from amazon.com for $450.

    Thanks

    The following are conditions for motorcycle on motorway:

    - 30+ years of age
    - 500cc or above bike in good condition
    - Motorcycle License (should not be very new)
    - Motorcycle Registration
    - Safety gear (Helmet, gloves, padded jacket etc)
    - Single rider on bike only

    Once you meet these specifications, you can go to Motorway Police IG office at F-8/3 Islamabad with copy of NIC, License, Registration and 2 Photographs. They will issue the Motorway permit for free of charge.

    Currently there are around 150 permits issued in Pakistan.
