One would be much wiser and safer to observe speed limits and use the purchase cost of this gadget to buy more gas to ride more!
Do make sure you buy one of units you can hide from easy observation. Can also pretty much guarantee a ticket, rather than a verbal or written warning if your radar detector is highly visible and you are stopped for a violation!
That's enough on this anti-law enforcement and promoter of unsafe riding practices item from me. I'm sure your only intent in using one is just to know what is happening around you as you do not ever break the speed limit!
Rant ended!
Rocky Mountain Radar does not promote unsafe riding practices. Radar detectors are very useful in every day riding especially for a motorcycle as they alert you not only to radar and laser, but also potential dangers on the road.
tfdeputydawg is correct about instant on radar that is the reason our unit has a 3+ mile detection range. Having a detector that is visible will pretty much guarantee a speeding ticket, that is why the Moto-Raptor was built to disappear when installed.

Since you responded:
There is one use and one use only for a detector! That being aiding and abetting one in violating the speed limits.
You and others can rationalize this any way you want to but, it does not change the facts, which is promotion of a device that leads to dangerous driving/riding practices.
Everyone call your insurance agent and ask if this device will be covered by your policy, should it be stolen.
I,as a LEO, find it very insulting for a forum about motorcycles to accept money to promote such a device.
By the way-3mile detection range-REALLY
Anyway, even if it were 10miles-How would that help against any officer activating his radar, when he observes a potential speeder?????

This argument makes about as much sense as the anti-gun lobby's argument that guns cause murders! Speeding is also a choice.
Just as the decision for this forum to welcome Rocky Mountain Radar as a sponsor was their choice and I support their decision.
I own a Radar Detector and I drive/ride with the flow of traffic which may be 5mph over, but that is a lot safer than impeding traffic, and that is my choice too.

You are correct, my intent was not to argue, but I do it constantly because I'm an a**.
Have a good day.

I live in a RADAR detector illegal state. I am neither a proponent nor adversary of RADAR detectors. I have lived in this anti-detector state for most of my life and I think it strange and inexplicable that some state allow and some don't. What's up with this ?

Moto-Raptor Radar/Laser Detector

We are excited to be part of the forum and hope to soon be posting some pictures of our Moto-Raptor installed on our customers motorcycles. This unit was created to blend in when installed. To view some pictures of the unit installed visit our website c450.net. If you have any questions or suggestions about the unit don't hesitate to let us know.
