    Coming back from the Giants-Dodgers game (Kershaw is pretty damn good)...

    Anyway, I'm blowing down 280 and 85 on SF peninsula and south bay and was not expecting LIDAR.
    I was probably going 88 on initial hit, used brakes to get down to 75 before killing. There's an acceleration and deceleration lag on the camera speed display - as to be expected with GPS. Anyway, I was way into 'ticket zone' for CHP.

    This is why I bought these devices.

    That's only 145km/hr. As anyone who has ridden with me knows, that's literally the speed I drive at, all the time, every time. (when possible). Big whoop

    :D :D

    In all seriousness, great save. Big grin ear to ear on me this morning after watching your video. EFF OFF POPO!!

    :)

    Nice! Great save! Are you still running dual Rx heads? I just added a Tx head, for when my parking sensors wander out of state.

    Sneaky CHP!! They have been hiding a lot lately, I ran into an officer the other day at the bottom of a hill on the 210 in sunland area running a PL3 he was just setting up as i sailed on past at 85+.

    This was a TruSpeed. The moto cops use TSS but the vehicle guys use TruSpeeds (a few moto cops also use the TruSpeeds)

    Nice save! But you've gotta be careful there. CHP likes to sit in that little alcove, backed up against the fence, sometimes. If I am ever speeding through here, I always have my eye on that alcove and if I see a CHP cruiser back there, I'll slam the brakes before the cosine angle allows him to get my real speed. https://www.google.com/maps/@37.264...4!1sMvKZjuXPSZcJS_5DqD_AiQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

    That game sucked. Giants needed to hand the Dodgers 12 straight losses. Damn it.

    Great save! I got hit yesterday, highway 99, around Stockton I think, on my way to Lake Tahoe. TrueSpeed ...scared the crap out of me, I JTK'd in about 4 sec. The CHP gave me a dirty look while talking to himself, I saw him pull out and turn on his lights and said oh %#]*^!! He dropped behind another car and pulled him over. Whew.
