Need advice finding a portable Digital Recorder for my motorcycle rides

Each winter I look for good inspiration for my treadmill miles.  My hope is to record my motorcycle trips, put 'em to suitable music (Jean-Luc Ponty?), and play the video back--during those long winter months when motorcycling is impossible in the Midwest.

Question:  what's a type of camcoder that can withstand a motorcycle's vibration and can render ok video?  I need something lightweight that can use some lightweight, low cost memory such as SD chips.

What search terms would you feed into live search to find vendors?

The Archos digital camera, camcoder, player combo seem compelling, but I'm hopeful for something that doesn't need a special mount.
