After being tagged this past sunday I need the best damn detector made ( bike use of course )
Some are using Beltronics 946 what do you guys recommend? and is $149.00 a good price??? although price is not my biggest concern.
I have the beltronics as well. I will post a couple of pics for you in this thread. I plugged the detector right into my chatter box audio jack. It works great. I just started using it but I don't have any complaints thus far.
Hey Jet where did you get your mount? also I read a review at amazon of these guy who said he had the Valentine in his car and the bel in his wifes and decided to take em both one day for a cruise. He said both were very close in warning sometimes 1 first then the other first... ? I have a cobra from last year I bought at costco for about $70.00 I think, and sometimes it reads way ahead and other times I see the cop first then it goes ballistic... hmmm? not sure how to tell if any of them work that good and what type of radar they cover other than read the manual and try it.
Jetset...The only guage that it covers is the odometer. When I have it in place I can't remove the key either. It is flexable and I just have to move it. No problems and it comes right out if I need it too.
anyone know of a good radar detector that shows a bright
flashing light when it gets a hit?---that way i don't have to
mess with helmet wiring.
got nailed last week going 78 in a 55 zone---i was not hotdogging and i honestly didn't
know i was rolling that fast. the cop nailed me going the opposite direction, i saw his brakes lights come on as he passed me and i knew i was history. $95 ticket and probable insurance premium boost. bike is so smooth you don't know the speed unless you look.
I have always thought of using one....borrowed one once..
didn't have a headset..saw the blinking light and the man at the same time..no ticket..didn't get stopped..oh good..
So..now...well over 100,000 miles..of riding..can hardly believe it..never....not once a ticket for speeding..been stopped for other reasons....Like how many times have you been going back and forth on this road...that thing goes REAL
Fast doesn't it..Yes sir it does..fzr600..with a muzzy..thought this is it ,finally iv'e had it..nope....he said he didn't the idea of seeing me plasterd all over the front of a motorhome..thank you i said..he said no no..just take it a little slower..
So all these years without a detector..probably will continue to be without one....2,500 miles on the Busa..whatta ride!!
picking yer spot to speed..can i see far enough ahead???
seems to work very well for me....SO FAR
