I have the Escort 8500 X50 Blue....... they do have the new 9500ix with GPS as you drive/ride it learns and it also detects red-light cameras other..... not enough extra features for me to upgrade this 8500 picks up the popo over a mile away sometimes.:thumbup: I do need to pay attention to it more often though....... got stopped by a state trooper the other day i was gunning it passed an 18 wheeler..... he said i was doing 102....:whistle:

A friend of mine has a TPX Radar detector, which is designed for bikes, it is water resistant, so don't need to worry about rain etc and it seems to give decent warning.
He likes it and has saved his butt a few times.
You can also put it in the car.

radar detectors

I might suggest a Passort by Escort. The Solo is battery powered so you could velcro it to your fairing with a ear peice for audio with no direct connection it can be removed quickly for rain,theft, and other reasons.

forget radar detectors, they are soooo last year.
these days the cops in the US are catching up with europe & using lazer instead of ka & the reast of it.
you need a lazer jammer, however they are highly illegal so in a car the best one is the lazer pro, it actually works & is sold as a parking sensor.
the fact that it works on the same frequency as the fuzz's lazer & jams it is purely coincidental :whistle:
leave it on, wait for the beeeeeeeep, hit the brakes, turn it off, no ticket.

you can buy them for bikes too like the M27 cheetah. but they cost a bit.

i only have the lazer pro in the car as i don't really have much interest in riding on GA roads on the bike.

when it comes to radar i've used cheap ass cobra to valentine & the difference seems to be measured in yards.

jam the bastards that's what i say. :curtsey:

The cordless ones are good only because you don't have to hook them up to accessory power. I haven't had a radar detector in years so I couldn't say if they are comparable in features or sensitivity though. Here's what I would buy if I needed one:

Also has a remote notification system available:

Nothing is fool proof, if you speed(and obviously we all do) you run the risk of getting caught, no fancy gizmo is really going to help you. Save your money for a track day or the drag strip to let your bike stretch its legs.

In my opinion its just another distraction when we are all already too distracted. Just keep the speeding to 10 over the limit and you'll be fine.

Beltronics STI, Cheater jammer and a Vis Alert.
And chaff, maybe some flares too…
Stealth paint? In scorched yellow?
