Radar Detectors Forum Logon:


Veil Guy Over the years, the Veil Guy has pioneered a unique reviewing style of radar detectors, laser jammers, gps detectors, Veil, and other speed trap countermeasures. He drives extensive miles throughout North America, pitting these countermeasures against genuine speed traps to determine the real-world potential of each of the products tested. While his unique style has been imitated, it's never been equaled. The Veil Guy has used radar detectors for nearly three decades and his experiences should be considered before making an informed radar detector or other countermeasure purchase. The opinions expressed by the Veil Guy are solely his own and not necessarily representative of speedtraphunter.net.

Default A little help with all this

I ride a motorcycle in California and need some protection from speed traps and the CHP. I ride a cruiser, so I'm not on a hot rod sport bike, but the speed limits in my area (and maybe all areas) are rediculous. So it's just a matter of time until I get a ticket. In fact, got one last night on a country road with no cars for miles around, doing 64 in a 45 mile zone where the speed limit must have been establish for Model-T's in 1910. A cop was hiding and nailed me.

I know nothing about radar detectors. I can't afford too much money here, but i would like to get something. What would you suggest? So far, I'm thinking a radar detector with a little laser-jamming paint. Laser jammers are, I guess, illegal in California.

Any help?

If you are on somewhat of a tight budget but don't want to compromise on performance, I would recommend either the Beltronics Vector 955 or the Whistler Pro 78 to accompany Veil.

Danny offers a couple of nice packages that may fit within your budget constraints:

Laser Veil / Whistler Pro 78 Radar Detector Package

He's got other packaged deals as well that you may find appealing:

If you need customized motorcycle mounts:

Radar Detector Motorcycle Mounts

Radarbusters also offers a bunch of them:

Motorcycle Mounts at Radar Busters

If you can get away with using a license plate cover, I would recommend an motorcycle fitted Ontrack Laser Shield or a Photo Blur that has Veil applied to it, so you can be protected from police laser and certain photo enforcement devices.

Smile Some ideas

Mstaples,

I would recommend the Bel 955 or 965 vector series and some Laser Veil G4. For the money they are both outstanding performers and the Veil really helps knock down on the reflection of the head lights. Laser jammers are illegal in california, but as long as you turn them off when approaching a police officer shooting at you and slow to the speed limit you will be just fine. Right now Jammers are at there lowest prices due to the economy. You can get some great deals out there on Laser jammers. If your interested in a laser jammer PM me. Escort and Blinder are the jammers I recommend.

What do you guys think of the Escort Solo S2? I hear it gives false readings, and it isn't waterproof... so that's a negative. How do you think it would stack up against the Bell 965?

Also, there is a product from Adaptive Technologies called TPX that is waterproof. Any thoughts about this one? I've kind of narrowed it down to either the Solo S2, the TPX, or the Bell 965.
