Default Re: Cops for Dummies

Good suggestion. Instead of calling the cop an @sshole Kook should just launch into one of his "Traffic Enforcement for Dummies" lectures.

What good fortune? You think 600,000 miles in a cage over 15 years is good fortune? I want some of what you smoke - now!

So thats where HD's R&D is going to. Bio-degradeable chrome. Wait I had a 72 Baracuda that had that, I hope HD came up with there own proprietary system, or they could be facing a lawsuit.

Default Get a Screamer

I use the Valentine with a Screamer. The Screamer is basically a small but very loud speaker that sounds off when the alarm goes off. This eliminates the need for an earpiece. I ride with earplugs and can hear it easily at arrestable speeds.



Whatever you decide to buy, be sure to use strategy as you ride. Do not wait for a beep to initiate appropriate action. Be proactive in your lane and pack positioning and active in scanning.



Like others have said, laser detection is just to alert you about the wallet lightening. Unless you see the cop and start slowing before he pulls the trigger on the laser, you'll be sitting on the shoulder again.
