can any one tell me if i am correct in thinking that if you have two motorbikes in the field of view the gun can not tell which bike it has taken the reading from?

If the officer had a unit with a Strongest/Fastest display such as the Stalker units, and only two bikes were in view, it could display both bikes' speeds.

For instance, if the lead bike is traveling 40 and the trailing bike is traveling 42, the unit would show the strongest at 40 and the fastest at 42 whereas the strongest is the bike closest to the officer.

So basically they have to decide who is who?

In addition to what Just1n stated, if there is only one reading say 40 mph, it tells LEO that both bikes were traveling at the same speed.

Radar is non-specific, and is not required to identify a specific vehicle. It is up to the officer to visually identify the vehicle off of which he has just received a reading.

Hence the reason many people believe they have been falsely ticketed - they were the lead vehicle perhaps, while the car behind them was going faster and the officer just assumed the lead vehicle was the faster one...
