I've been riding a street-legal KLX300 around the hood, lately. It will do 65 if pinned, but who wants to ride like that? I've been followed for a bit, but never pulled over.

That worked for me when I was an el tee, too. Right up to the time when some COL decided he needed to lecture me on safety.....

Here in New England, there are tons of roads with corners and hills, find them. Use the dips in the hills or corners to hide you from behind and speed till line of site ends. Have situational awareness at all times. It's amazing how fast you can go on the interstate or even local roads if you just look as far ahead as possible. If you can't see what's on the road ahead, don't speed (too much). It's all about bursting around on our insane little machines...isn't it?

Lidar travels in a reasonably straight line, but it does widen the further it travels. By the time its about 1km its about 4ft in diameter if I remember right - but thats a hell of a lot better than radar which spreads much faster.



The other way lidar detectors can help is that when the signal hits a vehicle, it "splatters" similar to spraying a car with a high pressure stream of water. That splatter is called back-scatter. It flies all over the place, and you can detect it from miles away with a good detector. The concept was actually stolen from the military who use it to identify when someone is using a laser target designator.
