I still own my original HP905 quad, thinking of installing it on the bike. It jammed TSS and TruSpeed, which is all I need. Add to that a Uniden. I'm not clear on the kill switch setup on a bike. It needs to be right there with the other bike controls, or have it on a timer and no kill switch.

Lets say you have jammers, the LEO hits you at 100mph and pulls out and turns his lights on, you do what?
a. pull over and accept ticket
b. keep going thinking the LEO must be going after someone else
c. drop a gear and disappear

Depends on situation. LEO is on a bike, pull over. LEO is going opposite direction and attempts to make a U TURN, I'm outta there.
The jammers would be for those situations where I am going +30 and it is possible to bleed down enough speed so as to avoid him trying to make a stop in the first place. I do often go on Coastal Hwy 1 and go 100+ but unfortunately they don't use laser there, radar.

If I do happen to get nailed at 120 with a jammer, at least (in theory) it jams until I am below 100. In California a ticket for 99 is a 1 point, anything 100+ is 2 points and possible reckless depending on the cop.

FYI, I joined a Facebook group for California Highway Patrol. Lots of CHP members current and retired on that group. One of them admitted a few weeks ago that he was on one of the new CHP Harleys and someone outran him in a Honda Civic going uphill. He said it was a total dog. So unless the cop is on one of the CHP BMWs, my ZX-14 will blow away any Harley. (Well, it would also beat the BMW, but I'm not going to do 160 in the process). Word has it the CHP Harleys top out at a whopping 109 mph.

I can't understand the thought process of getting leo harleys, what are they thinking!!!? I figure it is because they are "American" but that seems like a safety hazard to me!

I've been considering how to mount countermeasures on the two wheeler but I'm considering another bike so I'll be interested to see how this goes.

Police bikes aren't typically selected for their ability as a pursuit vehicle. That's not the intended purpuse. The HD's are very maneuverable and easy to ride in traffic and city streets. So are the BMW boxers with their low COG. Those new BMW R1200rt's are no slouches. By no means ZX-14 fast. but you'd be surprised,

On another note, I wonder if being on a bike, taking a bit longer to JTK would be less of a concern, due to the smaller profile?

That was my thought also, as I am putting ALP's on my bike. It might not be easy to hit the smaller size of a bike and a delay in reading might not be uncommon.

That does not deter them however, I was laser-ed on a bike twice last year while in Sandusky Ohio at Bike Week...I will be there again this year too :dance: !

I was thinking the same thing... you could even JTG and the cop would likely shrug it off. Which is why this is the only situation where I would have a timer based kill of 4 seconds. I can almost come to a stop from 100 in that time frame.
