Sounds like Beltronics STi Driver for your needs...

The new Beltronics STi Driver is the one I would buy if the detector-detector feature is a factor. Everthing I have read claims that it is the only detector that is immune to the newest technology in detector-detectors.

The Blinder laser jammer gets the highest ratings in laser jamming tests.

I bought a Beltronics RX65 for my '06 FJR. I am going to mount it somewhere above the guages right behind or to the windshield. Neither the RX65 nor the STi Driver are waterproof, so I will have to cover the RX65 or remove it to wash the bike or when caught out in the rain. That aggravates me because one of the reasons I bought a Garmin 2730 GPS and a Yaesu VX-6R two-way for the FJR was that they are waterproof.

I am not going to put a laser jamming device on my bike for now.

A google search will yield more than you will want to read...

What about if the police have a radar detector detector detector do you have to get a detector with a radar detector detector detector detector?

The mmost widely used detector by endurance riders (who have a on of accumulated miles on their bikes and accessories) is the Valentine 1. The locator benefits tends to be underestimated by reviewers who don't put much seat time into how it helps in real world applications.

Radar jammers are illegal in the US because they are a broadcast device that is controlled by the FCC. Passive radar jammers are a hoax.

Laser jammers work (some better than others). That may be why there are several US states trying to pass bans on their use.

The V1 is probably the best overall RD for highway use but it gets expensive to set it up for a motorcycle. If you are ging to ride alot in Eastern Canada, West Virginia, and Australia then I would recommend the Bel STI. Invisible to the police Spectres

Personally I would get one of the cheaper Bels like the RX-65 and get a laser jammer. The Blinders used to be the standard but there is a new gen of jammers come out from Europe and they absolutely kick ass. They dont throw jamming to codes to the gun :D

The other thing I would look into is a product called Veil. I use it in conjuction with the Ventura Light Guards to reduce the target range from laser on the bike. Could be another way to go if you dont want a jammer

If you want to learn more theres a board with radar wonks

Everything that you need to run it on a bike is included with the V1 unit.

IF you want to pipe audio into your headset/earphones, then an aux audio unit will be needed. But it's not required.

Valentine V1 is a must.
The locator really is really easy.
They have interface for intercom and small display
You can put it below the seat (but nolaser detection then)

Escort 8500 is what I have used for the last several years. It is small and easily mounted on most any bike. The Valentine is a good unit also, more expensive, more false alerts, and harder to mount due to it's size and multiple components. Get something, a detector is a must in my book, especially if you travel the secondary roads and go through small towns.
Good Luck.
