Hypothetically speaking :wink: , what would be the best way to attach a radar detector to a strom so that it would not be noticed by the Tax Collectors? They are illegal in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

How much money you got? The SR7 is the ultimate stealth radar detector.

For the rest of us working people you can put it anywhere it is not blocked by metal. You do lose the LASER capabilities by hiding behind plastic but the radar is virtually the same. You will want to put a power switch somewhere to turn it off. Will not do to have the thing beeping like crazy while talking with the cop.

There is one other model that has caught my interest but I have not heard of anyone that had one to compare. The problem is everyone recommends the V1 or Escort detectors and this one is a Whistler. Still I would be interested to see what someone with experience in this area had to say about this model:

This ones look great. If only the front of it said Volts or tire pressure or something.

i'm a cheap ass...i just velcroed a beltronics 895 ($200 at radioshack) to the little space above the gauges.

as far as stealthieness goes...if you see smokey, i would just pull it off and shove it in your pocket or tank bag...when i was going to Virginia Tech i had a detector on my dash in my truck that (if i had ever gotten pulled over) i woulda just thrown it in the back seat.

although its not one of the super fancy brands i LOVE this detector...i picked up a K band at 2 miles from behind a hill and around a corner last night...this thing is awesome!

You could attach the radar detector under one of the dash pannels and plug a "radar screamer" into the radar as a audible warning system. Or attach the radar to the inside of one of the tank panels. I have a Radar Screamer on both of my bikes, it has saved me from many tickets. You can hear the radar screamer go off a 85 mph with a full face helmet and ear plugs. I use a escort 8500 detector.

The V1 is the most difficult to detect with the different Radar detector detectors.

It may be the most expensive but you can do a stealth install and have a remote display and a speaker with volume control. Both extra items. If you mount it permanently it needs to be away from the environment it's not water proof. So it needs to be in a box or baggie.. All I have seen done.

It can be an almost inviable install and is the most invisible of them all with electronic detection equipment.
