Default Want to record with audio my Motorcycle rides

I am looking for a decent camcorder or recording device that has an external mic input and has good image stabilization to record my motorcycle rides. I want to edit them and put them on YouTube, it called vlogging and I have tried a few different devices and not happy, it's all about getting the mic in the helmet so that I can talk or narrate. I started looking around and thought I could hit this site up for some help.

Thank You for your time.
Bob

I don't know if GoPro makes anything like what you need but I'd start there if you haven't already.

What else have you tried and not liked? What has been wrong with those things? What else have you looked at and decided against? Let us know these things so we don't waste your time recommending things you've tried and/or looked at already.

when you do find your your digital camcorder consider getting a "throat mic" which eliminates road noise up to about 40 mph. You can do an internet search for them I'm sure.

Well I have the Vado HD including the latest generation, I found after the fact that image stabilization is not one of it's features. The GoPro is something I have thought about and may invest in one after further research. The key to me is Image stabilization and external mic is important. I will be mounting this on the bike and will have the mic inside the helmet for wind noise control.

Other Vloggers install the cameras inside their helmet and I am not a great fan of this so I thought I would look deeper into whats available since this technology is going crazy with this kind of stuff.
