Radar Detectors???

What one do you recommend? Not because I speed everywhere...but i have a long road trip coming up and i don't wanna be caught when the speed limit changes from 70 to 65 or even 60.

You know how it goes...what are your thoughts?

OH and if there is anyway the same radar could work with an adapter to fit on bike that would be perfect!

At the risk of being a smartass the color of the LEDs !! Seriously it is just the color that is different.

I have the 9500ix and it's great. Having said that I have only used it in the car and not on the bike. I think that the guys over at legal speeding sell some sort of helmet remote display that gets good write ups.

Blue favored because it can be seen easier in sunlight.

Get an escort 9500. I know people who have had both valentine and the 9500. Always the 9500 is their choice.

I had an 8500 for about a week, but I had to sell it for the money. Worked great.

I don't know much about the availble detectors , but a good 5-7 years ago I used a Valentine 1 on a trip to New Mexico, and was very impressed.
Read about it at the Valentine site , and noted it can be had with some remote opertating options and displays making it motorcycle friendly.
Not sure if others have similar capablities
