mrlopez, radar detectors are fine if the officer is using stationary or moving radar. I use a laser radar on cars they are hit everytime. Motorcycles are harder because of the smaller radar signature, further we "aim" at the headlights since the headlights are the most reflective part of the vehicle. The closer you mount the radar detector (it better have a laser detector built in) to the headlight the better you are off. As a note the laser signature at 800 feet away is only as wide as a stop sign. Keep that in mind. This is why laser radar units are incredibly more accurate and harder to defeat. Hope this helps.
