I just bought an Aldi tank bag. It's better designed than my Touratech with the ability to use it in three configurations with a separate map compartment in each one. Heaps of zip pockets. It looks well made and fits nicely on the tank of my CB1300S. At only $40 it's got to be the best motorcycle bargain ever.

They still have about 4 left at the Aldi in Kingston Road, Slacks Creek south of Brisbane.

Reckon its like the one I bought off ebay for a little less. Is a no name chinese job, but has ATC3K on the circuit board. Is it a unbranded copy using the oregon components?

Havent got round to using it yet but the buttons are dicky to use, forget turning it on without taking your helmet off to see what your doing. Apart from that seems ok, dont be expecting great resolution or sound.

If I was buying now I'd buy a contour HD from the states for $279USD.

WARNING: It's the old model that only accepts SD cards of 2GB capacity or smaller. Those cards are starting to get hard to obtain.

I have had a brief play with one they are tricky to use and there is no obvious way of know what if anything has been recorded until you get home and put the card into a PC.

Here is a youtube video I made using one.

nope, the 'big blue button' is the screen. The buttons are the raised rubber section behind the screen, you really need to watch the screen to check that the button has worked.

Saw the contour hd at mcas, has a nice big slide button to operate, but I aint paying $550 for one
