Motorcycle Radar Detectors

I need a new detector for my bike(s). This ticket shit is not fun.
Background:
I am a huge V1 fan, my cars all have them and I couldn't be happier.
But I want to hide the detector so I can permanently mount it and not have to fool with it when the bike is parked in a lot or whatever.
I bought a Whistler Cruizaider the world's shittiest detector and it died on me, and I will never even consider another one.
A V1 is great, but if I hide it the rear antenna will be useless and to be honest, all I want is to know when there is radar when I am out on the road.
Another problem is what to do when it goes off. I need something in my helmet (wireless) to inform me of it going off. There are a couple of products on the market that seem to be okay.
I was looking a the Adaptive detector made for motorcycles, anyone tried one?
FBA, can you chime in on this?

I was a big V1 fan as well...but it's gonna be tough to do what you want to do. The laser detection has to be visible for it to work. What about the helmet remote setups? Have you seen those?

I have also used the latest Bell/Escort units, and they are probably better than the V1's. The above unit is compatible.

yup...up to a whopping 165 now. I think you got more fat on your bald head than I do on my entire body.

Do you really need a radar detector? Maybe an idiot detector so it goes off every time you start acting like one.


Best detector out there is...slow down in areas where cops are. Ya know that throttle thingie goes BOTH ways right?

I have the Adaptive TPX detector on my C14 and i find it works fine and I have the visual alert mounted on my dash and wear the wireless alert speaker in my helemet.All works great now as i had an issue with the wireless alert but Adaptive fixed it under warranty with no issues.
A lot of radar tests say it is a little weak on the distance detection side ,but I have not had a ticket yet,touch wood.The convience of quick disconnect mount,waterproof and large buttons to use with gloves on all our features I wanted,and it was easy with everything avaliable from one source.
I use a Bel STI in my corvette and I feel it does detect a little quicker then the TPX,but all in all the TPX is a decent unit,even though it is not the best.

Thanks,
One problem I have is that I already have speakers in my helmet and there is really no good place for another one.
As for all out range, is it quite noticeable?
I use the V1 in my Corvette, and my Escalade and just love them.

That is the point of a Radar detector, to know where to cops are so you can slow down. Or are you just now learning that?

If your only purpose is to disrupt and turn this into a pissing contest and not have anything useful to contribute, I will delete your posts. Consider yourself warned.

Range or early alert is really not much less then my BEL,but I have no comparison to the V1.You really do not need the wireless speaker if you have the included visual alert mounted in your field of vision.The led in the alert is quite bright and is adjustable.

Thanks, I may just go that route if I can see it. More junk in the helmet is not a good thing.

get a 9500i, have one on the C-14 and the ZX14r...don't leave home without them...use the center Techmount on the C-14 between the handlebars for the GPS, I use the handlebar Techmount for the C-14 for the radar detector....hooks into a Screamer so you can see and hear it better and plugs into the Mix-It amp so I can adjust the volume when I get a hit and never get a ticket....

Passport is the name of the game..expensive but those tickets are too...
