Now are you talking guesstimate as, they pace you and say you were going 45 mph, based on their speed..or guesstimate as in , you drive past them while they are pulled over, and they guessimate how fast you were going?ShanMan14 said:Yup!
FYI side note...some call me Windy...double2000r6 said:Yeah that radar jammer is bad ass - what it does is it sends a scrambled signal back to the radar gun of the cop and therefore it confuses the gun and won't get a reading.. Of course two problems: 1. It is not made for a bike and would have to be hardwired 2. It is illegal and if you are going fast enough they will just pace you anyways
I went oodles of sites on radar detectors and talked to a guy in Canton about it (Electronic Connection). There is one made specifically for bikes - I forget the make and model - that takes batteries and has a headset for an audible warning as well as a scope that hangs out of your pocket. According to him it wasn't all that good and only worked to the front not 360. I never bought it though. When I have the extra cash I am buying a good one and working on a mount and I will hardwire it. I speed way too much not to have one.
Windy has a bad ass mount on his Kaw. I wish I could do that on the R6 but it has a digital speedo and his mount would block it.
Both from my research. I got my last ticket from this. It's bull but they can get away with it.Now are you talking guesstimate as, they pace you and say you were going 45 mph, based on their speed..or guesstimate as in , you drive past them while they are pulled over, and they guessimate how fast you were going?
:withstupi: Two of my uncles were cops and some of my customers at the car parts place I worked at. They will get you for something if you give them the opportunity.If the cop cant read your speed he'll just write you for wreckless driving. The cops have a way around every thing (they write the laws that way for a reason) and it comes down to your word against theirs and we all know how far that gets you. I wouldn't waste the money on a radar detector/jammer.
You have 2 ways to beat a ticket: #1 Run and don't get caught or #2 pull over and be as friendly and honest as you can possibly be... I would suggest #2 :2cents:
:scratch: The post before yours was almost 3 years ago.If your looking for mounts and such like that try Radarbusters.com they got a lot of stuff for bikes.:2cents:

Yeah I know, but I only thought to look at the date after I posted a reply. You guys are always saying "Use the search button, before you post anything?" So I did.
