I was wondering if you guys could help me with a project I'm planning for mounting an RD to my scooter. (That's right, I want to stealth out my scooter!).
Mods, please don't dump this into the motorcycle section right away, since the questions I have aren't confined to the motorcycle set.
First of all, you can see pics of my scooter at my site, "www.i-said-ouch-not-stop.com".
As you will see, there is a big space between the nose of the bike and the front fender, and I plan to mount the RD right under the nose, basically sticking it to the underside of the nose.
I will be running a smart cord to the dash through the body panels, and one earbud headphone cord up to the cockpit/helmet.
I would only be using the detector in dry conditions, of course.
What I'd like to know is if anyone on this board has mounted a detector 'outside', and if so, what they used to protect it from road grit/bugs, etc.
What would work to cover it but not interfere with it? Plexiglass? Real glass? A basic plastic case?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
