If you want the best, there are two choices, the Passport 8500 or the V-1. Also heard good things about the Solo too though, and it is battery powered.mark erhardt said:Which radar detector works best on a bike? Can it take the heat and humidity or any type of wet weather?
Dang I like that shelf!DaleC said:Depends on where you mount the Valentine. In my case I have it mounted on a shelf so I have a square of industrial strength velcro and that baby isn't going anywhere unless I rip it off. It also has the telephone cord connections for the power cord which snaps into it also, but the Velcro for me is more than enough for my setup and I have no worries at all.
Most of the m/c designed mounts are made to soak up some of the stress of being on a bike. The RAM mounts are good, but I like to have the unit in front of me, where I don't have to look away to see it.GL1800GSXR1000 said:Got the Valentine 1 for Christmas with the audio output unit. I've used it in my truck and like it but haven't put it on either of the bikes because I want to be sure the mount is extremely secure. I don't want to watch $400 bounce down the road in my mirror. Any ideas for a mount that does not involve the cost of something like Texelent?
TIA for any ideas.
lol... that would be great if I wasn't 7000 miles from my garage & my bike.DaleC said:<use the info you gave me to come up with one of my own>
Golly gee wiz, Mike, that was over 2 weeks ago. Heck, that's enough time to build it, mount it, and take a 13,000 mile Iron Butt ride and vacation in Hawaii for a week sipping "Sharks" (a great drink, I might add).
Let's get cracking Dude!
