Jammer, don't get caught.
Jammer, don't get caught.
Radar detector (with laser detector) = Legal.
Jammer= Illegal, subject to vehicle seizure.
Might have been the scatter issue that worked for me. SOP was to swerve in my lane, hit the brakes and pray. It's worked a couple of times for me now.
Are there rules against laser jammers? I can understand the legal issues with interfering with radar frequencies, but light?
OTOH, a member of the WSP on Wetleather says they played with every type of LIDAR jammer they could purchase, and none of them worked worth a damn.
His shop is a thing of beauty btw
He and I were chatting about Radar/Laser Jammers one day and he explained to me he could build me a jammer that would "likely" work. Of course he added it would cost at least $250,000 in parts and I would need to tow a trailer with a generator to hold and power it.
He smiled and said that the Officer would know he was being jammed immediately and that an FCC violation in the USA was a far bigger deal than I could ever imagine. He said just "man up" and pay the speeding ticket.
In other words the Jammers you can buy are about as useful as those "100% natural" instant male enhancement pills
I use a V-1, a CB and constantly look for the police.
I would never have got my "bear in the air ticket" last year if I had remembered I-5 truckers use CH17 not 19.
On another note is it time yet to ask which is better the V-1, the Bell, the Escort or something else?
BCSB had mountains of experience with a lot of things. #1 on that list is pouring out bullshit to dumb questions by the Gigabyte. (TripleTime, 12-10-2014 03:19 PM)
From the reviews I read before getting my x50, most people went towards the escort. A few people said it was nice to know what direction the signal came from (ie V1), but otherwise the x50 was more sensitive and had better results. Don't forget you should get a fully synthetic radar detector from Beacon
If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.
X50 saved me many times.
Too sexy for this forum.
Laser is still not widespread (especially regarding small towns) as it requires departments to make a new invest for the hardware and training, and is limited in that it works only in virtually clear conditions.
So yeah, a good detector is worth it even without factoring in laser.
great info! i'm researching the Escort ones....
have you guys got pictures of how you've mounted these to your bikes?
Here's mine, Techmount (Control Mount model) Escort 8500 X50 also have radar screamer (not shown) 2007 CBR600RR
****************************************I'm just telling it like I see it !
i just talked to a friend of mine that is CHP in california....he says "save your money. i've given 100's of tickets to people with radar detectors. the majority of the time you are already caught before you know it"
having said that, i'm sure a detector could save you a few of the times...and just those few times would have it paid for anyways.
X50 story I love telling
Im on my road trip last season, Im on a straight stretch behind 4 cars moving at 90kph... I have to pass...so pull out... a van is seen way off in the distance..probably 500+ meters
as soon as I pull out I get a little bleep in my headphones from my X50 so I pull back in...then as the van pulls by me I look over , sure enough, its a cop in a family van ghost car
without the radar I would have been up into the 160 -170 's without question
bike taken away and in the back of the squad car without question
does the radar work...you bet !!! If you ride the speed limit, then no you dont need one
unfortunately I like getting out of third gear every once in a while so ill keep mine thanks
Anyhow, I have the 9800i and it's fantastic. It's the same detection technology as the X50 but with a very robust GPS feature that allows you to permanently disable false alarms and it blocks out all detection signals when traveling at legal speeds. It's very elegant.
I also like how the 9800i will tell you your speed when the detector goes off and it has voice prompts that tell you the radar band it's tracking.
My bike is so much faster than yours that I dare you to ride it, you lame little turd. Do you have the balls to ride this BOTTOMLESS PIT OF TORQUE?
