Folks...

I've never had a need for a radar detector on a bike before... but holy jumpin JC, do I need one now. BADLY! Otherwise, I will surely end up as somebody's cell bitch. :'( I'm too pretty to go to jail, trust me. :D

So -- Radar Detectors for the M109R... anyone got a recommendation?

I've always heard the valentine 1 was the daddy.

Have you actually used that system? I have also heard the Valentine's a good one. I am interested in real-life field experience, though.

I am especially intrigued with the heads-up display add-ons... do they actually work?

I decided to stretch my 109's legs last night after putting on my homemade fly screen....don't tell my wife but I had to pull out after I hit 140 mph. because I couldn't hold on anymore. I think we should reclassify this thing as a sport cruiser or something. By the way the tach read 6000 rpm at 140 mph no telling what the top speed is. Prison here I come!!!!

That kind of speed around here would lose a fella his license for the summer, and probably 30 days in the Graybar Hotel to boot.

I ain't saying I wouldn't try it... but I gotta have some detection first.

Check out this video -- looks interesting:

Escort Radar Detectors makes a cordless detector that uses 2 AA batteries.* It's one of the best detectors on the market right now.*
I have one in my truck.* Check it out: http://www.escortradar.com/solo.htm

I use this one also.* Very good detector.* Batteries last about 3 months or so.* Saved me from a ticket just last night coming up over an overpass.* Started going off before I got to the up-slope and as I got to the top(all the while slowing), there was Smokey Bear, LA State Police.*

This detector is great and I'm already looking at ways to mount it on the 9'er.* Has to be something secure enough to withstand occasional 100mph blasts and also the idle vibrations.*

Owned the Valentine One. Very Bulky, and i got a ticket early with it.* Bought the sensoro Silver Bullet. Haven't had a ticket since, and it runs on batteries.

I have the Escort Solo S2 cordless detector, it works and detect radar on patrol cars, but two time had happened to me that did not detect the hand pistol radars,
I have even went back and park very close where they were shotting and the Solo S2 did not make a sound, and I had it plug to the lighter.
