    Default Radar detector for a motorcycle

    this may be a stupid question but hopefully you guys can help me...

    I just purchased a escort solo s2 cordless for my motorcycle, and have been reading though many forums on where exactly to mount it
    a number of forums said that it works through a tank bag, but i wanted to know would it still be able to detect radars if it is in my jeans pocket??

    either way i would have to wire headphones to it so i can hear it beep, since i doubt i would be able to hear it over the exhaust

    would the reading be reduced significantly? would it work at all? or would it just be a minor difference if i put it in my jeans or jacket pocket

    thanks in advance for any help

    You will want it pointed in the direction you are driving. Radar isn't effected much by non-metallic objects so you can have it behind plastic or cloth with little loss of radar detection. You will totally lose laser detection with any non-transparent obstruction.

    Escort Radar customer service is available from 8am-6pm Eastern Time Mon-Fri at 1-800-543-1608
