the "high speed" guys swear by the Valentine... they say the "look behind" function is essential.
mount the detector as high as you can...
do you need to keep it concealed?
for warn light get a helmet led.

Hmm... my only concern will it still rear radar signal if its mounted behind the 3rd eye or under the headlights. In any case I don't have high expectations for any detectors to pick up radar well from behind... if it does I'd be surprised.
Three main reasons for concealing it are: to prevent theft, so a police officer doesn't see it "IF" I do get pulled over, and incase I'm visit a state that frowns upon detectors (in that case I would just cut it off, via switch or something).

Oh yeah, put a tiny Bluetooth communicated tiny LED receiver fused into a polarized shield for heads up display in a shatterproof pyrexed glass. And could you also make the sonic portion in feedback with some Bose quality speaker system that can be mounted directly into an Arai Corsair V helmet lining. And while you're at it......
HA! would you like a hot baby alerter add to that also. Laser jammers are not legal in SC unfortunately. I've seen the heads up display for detectors, but they all run on battery or have cords running from the bike to the helmet. I hate having to replace batteries, recharging and all that stuff and don't want a bunch of cords attached to me.
Iv thought about this too, in BC they are legal. Just how to make it clean and factory looking is the problem, you would have to take the unit apart and rewire it.
Also which one is the best and doesn't go off at just anything?
Perhaps a write up would be nice if you go along with it as long as its ok with the mods.

I'm sure its going to happen sometime between next week and in the next month.. I just need to raise money for a detector right now and maybe some labor hours if I recruit a shop to help me. I think I can do the wiring part. My soldering sucks though and I've never desoldered anything.
