Ok so I figured I would purchase the ESCORT 8500 X50 with Blue LED's which is about as top of the line as it gets (yes its better than valintine
Anyways I am wondering if it is really worth it for my bike.
I was thinking of how to mount it and I can either make a custom bracket off the mirror or drill a hole though my windscreen and bolt it up to that.
Where do you guys mount them?
How do these work for side/rear protection if you have it mounted on the windscreen?
Do you guys hook the detector up straight to the battery or ues a fuse?
Also it is such a curve screen will it distort the way the detector works?
I think it should work better than a car at oncoming radar/laser as they have to shoot for the headlights and that is right where the detector is but i just want to hear if people believe they actually work or if its not worth my $4xx.
