I asked Twisty this same question before. He said that his mount they use was like custom made by one of the WOS guys. I wanted to buy a Digital Camcorder so I can video what goes on also but I don't have the dough right now so that's on the back burner.!

And a radar on a bike? Why? Isn't that just pointless?

I just don't get it. By the time the radar goes off, you hear it, and the cop gets started moving, you could kick the bike up to like at least 125mph or better if you weren't doing that already. And any cop with a pea-sized brain or larger knows full-well that they won't stand a chance to catch up to you on the bike. And they can't put down spike strips, so that option is out. They won't block the road, that is out the door too. So what option do they have besides trying to see the plate and at like 100+ mph, I forsee that highly impossible.

Yeah I have one and like it! It is only there as a tool and has helped me many times. That way I know if the cop got me at 130 so I can start going faster. More like 175 or somin...

Here's a pic!

See, now I can understand it for that reason Gas Man, but like it's usually not mounted for that reason. Most people try to slow down when it goes off, I just wouldn't understand why you'd do that on a bike.

But I do like the GPR Stabilizer, I was thinkin' red or black for mine.

Hey now, I only ran once. And I didn't even "run". It was more like they didn't even give chase. I won't run from the cops, that's a NO NO. I respect the law, especially here being less than 6 miles from the border!

If you truely "run" then you better be damn sure you can get away, odds are not in your favor with radios these days. I got tagged at 131, cop thought I had fled with another bike (unknown), however as he was exiting to turn around he noticed my tailight (I was coasting down). I never saw him until the red/ blue turned on and he was riding up my ass. Immediately pulled over, and long story short, officer was cool as hell and in court let me go with fine and 0 points! Had I fled more than likely down the road several cops would have been watching/ waiting, and I would be some dud named Bubba's bitch!
Talk all the **** one wants, but push comes to shove your not gonna run, and if you do ya better be one hell of a rider.
