    Default Motorcycle Summer is one its way! What's your summer RD plans this year?

    What RD are you planning this motorcycle season?

    Valentine One
    Escort Redline
    Escort 9500-series
    Escort 8500-series
    Beltronics STi-series
    Beltronics GX-65 or RX-65
    Beltronics Vector-series
    Adaptiv TPX

    (and other RD-Motorcycle considerations)

    How are you mounting the RD?

    On handlebar
    Mount up from tank
    On top of gauges
    Under windscreen
    On my elbow

    How will you see/hear the RD?

    I can see it in my field of view
    I ride a really quiet motorcycle really slow with no wind noise, I can hear it fine
    I listen via an earplug/helmet speaker
    I patched the RD in with my music player
    I use the H.A.R.D. visual alert device
    I use an external speaker to make the RD louder
    I use Cheetah's VizAlert
    I use some bright lights/LEDs that shine up from the RD

    How will you protect the RD from the elements/rain?

    I remove it when I see the storm clouds a-comin'
    I put a sandwich bag over it
    I have a mounted cover for it
    I have a GoldWing with a convertible top, air conditioning, and 30" LCD TV
    I don't ride in bad weather

    How do you power the RD?

    Hardwire to the battery, I have to disconnect the RD when done
    I use a BMW-type plug for it
    Hardwired, but with an inline switch
    I use a cigarette-lighter-type plug
    Hardwired to an ignition-on-only circuit so it shuts off automatically when the key is off
    Batteries. Lots and lots of batteries.

    What other countermeasures are you looking at?

    Laser/LIDAR jammer
    CB radio
    Not having Sammy Hagar's I Can't Drive 55 on the MP3 player
    Veil on the bike...and maybe on the helmet...and maybe some on the seat of my pants
    Escort Live (with gloves..and mounting the iPhone)
    Some piece of junk radar "jammer/hider/dephuzer/absorber" that I saw on late night TV
    Trapster (maybe running on an iPad while you ride the bike?)
    A rabbit - preferably a 1977 Special Edition Pontiac Trans Am driven by a dude with an awesome 'stache
    A SureCheck TPAS RX-100 to detect transponder aircraft (the CAS-67A TCAS II was a bit too pricey)

    What kind of bike?

    A totally cool cruiser that makes young women faint and sets off car alarms when I ride by
    A rad rice rocket that reaches Warp Factor 5 and back to the speed limit..all while I'm on the onramp
    An adventure bike that can go anywhere I want
    A giant luxury-liner-touring bike with a built-in refrigerator, Sat-TV, and Internet
    A 1971 Honda CB750 getting back to some roots of the modern bike

    Nice survey. Funny too. Are you hosting it on any other forums?
