So I am now the proud owner of a escort 8500x50 and I could not be happier. Next step is to install the unit onto the bike. The big question in all of this is do I go with the H.A.R.D or the visalert for my helmet?? It seems to me the visalert is where it is at no questions since you can have an indication of signal strength and a way to tell which band you are detecting. Before I go spend more of my hard earned cash I wanted to double check with you experts.
btw I own a 07 Triumph Daytona 675 in the fastest color scorched yellow. Where is the best place to mount the unit? I have seen mounts that use the hole in the center of the triple tree and also ones that mount to the top of the forks. I was thinking maybe right on top of the instrument cluster if I can figure out a way to make a bracket attach to the windscreen.
Any advice and thoughts on these subjects are very welcomed.
