I use the K40 and I had no problems, I was shooting down 696 at 170mph and my K40 saw the state trooper alittle over 1/2 mile up.

Check out where I keep it, Out of the way but still insite

Badboy, Tuf and Train...

Yep thats my unmarked.

I think people get confused how RADAR works. One thng is RADAR corrobarates the officers speed estimate. I have to make a visual estimate of the vehicles speed independent of the radar.
(If anyone wants to test me I will take them out on the Road and will let them test me. I can get the speed of a vehicle within  +/- 5 mph.  That is mandatory in NC)
So I am not just turning it off and on standby. When I cut it on I am locking it in and getting ready to write a ticket.
VASCAR is a time distance computer (lidar is laser)
VASCAR doesnt give out a signal. I can put out predetermined distance marks and sit on the overpass and click you off as you go by.  ( hint: look out for white lines that run perpendicular to the road, or hash marks like on a football field.
Im just saying know what to look for and you will come out better than depending on those things.
(I dont write Busa's btw)

Served myself and your absolutely correct! But, as a former LEO I know generally what to look for! Twenty plus years and not one ticket......... Now onto the positive side of this debate; I've jammed every lidar gun that can be used in our county! Tested independantly on a closed course with my bike! Guys/Gals he is correct in that a very patient LEO can nab speeders even with the mighty Escort/Passport or V-1! I've done it, so I know it can be done! The best defense is a combination of protective measures.
1. Good Detector (distance is also a factor)
2. Laser Jammer (Not impervious, distance is a major factor)
3. A watchful eye!
4. Don't be the lead dog on the highway, stay in the right-hand lane, and hug the right-hand side of the road when vehicles are in front of you...

Atomic, VASCAR is Visual And Speed Computer And Recorder.

Bascally its a high tech stop watch. Time distance measuring. This is one like I have. It gives you speed time and distance.

Trick is, think like a cop.  Where would a cop hide to detect you speeding?  And think ahead.  Hang left, (vehicles block radiation), pass right.

Thing is, they aren't hiding.  I've seen them pull U-turns 3 times in the past week, and shoot off with lights lit up.  I've sort've expected to see them parked at certain places, and now they're not there, they're out and about.

No offense to any LEO's here, but I think my county is a little short on revenue, the way they're going around.

So it's just a big fancy stop watch, ehh?

But I could have sworn that I read somewhere that Vascar couldn't be introduced as evidence of speeding?  Or maybe it was just someone who argued that in court, can't remember.

No VASCAR is almost indefensable. Most attorneys dont even argue VASCAR in court.
16 years I have never gone to trial on a VASCAR case.

Great info Kweave! Thanks for sharing.

I have a Puig touring screen that is BLACK. You cannot see through it. Will a Escort/Passport 8500 X50 work OK through this dark screen??  I love the screen, I'd hate to part with it.

If its transparent it'll work bud, if you can drive looking through your screen your Radar detector can see

That's what I was afraid of, it's not transparent at all.

Take it from a COP....   None of that crap works.
I have (in my unmarked both Radar and VASCAR) There is no way to beat VASCAR. What I am saying is be smart and when you ride be aware where officers could be hiding.

VASCAR is a mobile system and I nab plenty o ppl driving past me. I really think those detectors are crap.
Also when I run Radar, I run it it standbye mode. When you get a signal, you already have a ticket.

Any questions or arguments I will be glad to entertain.
P.S. There are many idiots out there that are not very adept at traffic enforcement, however, When you have someone that knows what they are doing, then your gonna get tapped.
how you can sleep at night ? everybody hate you

And of course you always obey speed limits.... don`t ya

And of course it is for public saftey when the pull over a lone biker in the middle of nowhere. Not a single car on the road in either direction while I was riding, getting pulled over, or getting written up. Cop just happens to be coming the opposite direction on this otherwise deserted road. Gets the reading on the moving radar and I'm sure he's thinking "Merry Christmas to me." I'm such a menace for going over 35 MPH on a freshly paved road with nobody around. I pulled over as soon as he hit his lights. I made it easy for him. He wouldn't even cut 1 MPH off the ticket. A$$hole LEOs like that are the reason people try to run. Mandatory court appearance. I have a spotless record except for this one incident, but if my attourney can't get it fixed, I may lose my insurance not only on the Busa, but all 4 of my and my wife's cars.

BTW, if you haven't figured out the racket yet, they intentionally set the speed limits 10-15 MPH slower than the average person would comfortable drive in order to increase the number of tickets and revenue. The Department of Revenue is in charge of the States' drivers licensing and points system, so you can't tell me it is in the interest of public saftey. It's State run racketeering.

Wow, I love threads like this.  I have both side of the coin/ opinions.  14+ years as traffic enforcer.  Lead the state in felony arrests and lead the state in recovery of stolen vehicles, top dog several years in a row for top narcotic officer of the year for QUANTITY recovered etc etc.

Most vaulable tool in the efforts of fighting major crimes are traffic violations.  90% of most crimes are commited and the scene is left by motorvehicle.  The vehicle is used to facilitate more criminal activity than anything else.

License plate light, speed, no headlight, obscured and defective registration, following too close, and lane violations are the top reasons in traffic violations that criminals get caught.  Also the top reasons for fatal's.  No a lic plate light has never caused a fatal, but you know what I mean.  I hope

Until you have picked up a dead body, knocked on mom/dads door and broke them down to a crumbled tear because johhny was going to fast to turn or what ever Its hard for me to accept the complaints towards cops doing a duty.  The people who seem to complain the most about cops are the ones who tend to bend the laws most.

If your bike wasnt able to do 190+ then you wouldnt get caught trying to do it.  If you were restricted mechanically to 65 or 70 then you wouldnt need a passport or laser jammer to hinder LE from catching you.

Now on the other side of the coin..  Ive been over/at 200 and yes it was on a highway.  For every ticket Ive ever gotten I earned it.  If not for that day for the other 1000 that I got away with.  It's hard for me to complain.

Do we all take unneccessary risks,  Sure all da time because we can.

Some are better at getting thru the cracks than others.  Im not saying speed kills people, people kill people or themselves.  Speed just makes it messier.  It's that tree that usually makes the deciding factor.

My advice which is worthless.  Be smart about what you do and where you do it.  If your going to attempt to max your throttle then dont do it during rush hour, on a holiday weekend, on road that has had so many other crashes that it's a KNOWN problem area.  Hell those "TARGET ENFORCMENT AREA" signs are there for a reason.  If your the ONLY BIKE ON THE ROAD why in da hell would you invite a traffic stop.  The COP is the ONLY OTHER BOARD DRIVER on the other side LOOKING FOR ANYTHING to go by and here you come at 100+ or heck even 15 over.

Ive worked in counties where it's shut down week for Honda, it's cold, and there hasnt been any traffic on the road for the last 3 hours, suddenly here you come.  Yep betcha I at least take a look at you.  Thats what you pay me for.

Ive let just as many speeders go for highspeed as I have given tickets too.  It's the contact not the ticket that makes the difference most times.  It's funny.  Every day there is a new thread here alone about a stolen busa.  If I stopped the guy on your bike for 8 over and recovered your bike you would have nothing to say.

Anyway.  Thanks for entertaining my thoughts. Oh and this is not a defence for the actual dikhead cops that use the badge as a toy or weight to make them dishonest. There is a bad apple in every bag but the bag as a whole is good.

Life is funny and has a wierd turn of events that has an equal and yet oposite attraction to it. EVERYTHING and EVERYONE around you are touched/connected by what you do.

YOU HAVE TO RENT AND/OR WATCH THE MOVIE "CRASH" TO APPRECIATE IT EVEN MORE.

That same dikhead cop usually has a good heart and good intentions. He's a jerk today but might be the guy pulling you out the fire tomarrow. On the other hand he might be the good guy today and a turn of events makes him a jerk tomarrow.

WATCH it, It worth it. PAY ATTENTION TOO! Alot of small details.

Icemann, that was very well written.  I do sometimes blame the LEO for doing his job, (not to his face, though), and I shouldn't.  I haven't ever had a vehicle stolen or vandalised yet, (only owned my own vehicles for 2 years now), so I can't say how I would react if someone were to recover my vehicle.

I do not, however, approve of the speed limiting laws written by the politicians working for ME.  These sugarbritches think they are working in my best interest when I am fully capable of taking care of myself.  If I want to do 70 down a deserted freshly-paved road with no intersections then that's my business, not that of the politicians that work for me.  I don't want to bend the laws, I want them to become history.  If I blow a corner doing 190 and kill myself, then I deserve that.

If johnny gets a brand-new R1 for his first bike and promptly wraps it around a tree with 25 miles on the odo with no gear on, then he lacked the common sense to stay alive.  Tell the parents to try better next time.

I understand your remark about criminals using motor vehicles to get away from a crime, and I can see the logic in that.  I personally just see a stark difference from my speeding vs. a criminals speeding.  But I probably just watch too many of those shows where the criminals are trying to outrun the cops.

Totally agree.  I saw that picture where an almost brand new SS600 was rammed into the side of a small car, at an estimated 150mph, that killed all 3 people in the car and the rider.  I would never travel like that on a road with intersections or in any kind of traffic.

If your bike wasnt able to do 190+ then you wouldnt get caught trying to do it.  If you were restricted mechanically to 65 or 70 then you wouldnt need a passport or laser jammer to hinder LE from catching you.[/QUOTE]

Mine doesn't go 190+, but it does go 100+.  And I don't think I would buy a vehicle restricted to that speed.  Just wouldn't sit right with me.

Now what I would like to see the highway systems go to an Autobahn system.  No speed limits, just compose yourself at whatever speed you are driving.  I think the speed limits we have now actually do us as a nation a disservice, by encouraging lax driving habits and attitudes.

I'm rambling now so I'll stop.
