Not true. I've been pulled over twice on my RT, each time doing 91-92 MPH in a 75/70. The first time was just north of Wichita, KS, and the Trooper just gave me a warning (a fellow biker). The second time happened in SC, where the Trooper, who was literally hidden in the tall grass in some trees, dropped the speed from 92 to 79, resulting in a much lower fine and points; I need to see if they allow for paying fines/court costs for no record on DL.

Now normally I ride at 85 all day and it's fine. Hit above that and they can and will come after you because now you're worth it.

But I'm a lot like most in here, wanting to get protection, but not needing/wanting to spend $3,000 for the best (ALP- 2 heads, front/rear + their radar front/rear). This is why the Adaptiv system looks promising but not fully confident, though Studio is making a believer out of me with his testing.
I ran a similar test than Studio.

Passed the tests for all the guns, including Dragon eye and XLR,.

Can not go wrong with this system

What kind of laser are you being hit with?

Can't answer that because I am riding raw and unprotected, LOL.

Probably not laser; more likely radar. I was definitely going those speeds, so no questioning that.

look into mounting a regular Detector on your bike or get the detector/jammer combo from TPX

Also have one of these and your findings work for me because I dont have the equipment nor the time to do the testing.

Please allow me to add these comments on weather ability. I recently rode north through spearfish canyon to I90 then south to Rapid city. However long that is through heavy thunderstorms . This was not the first time riding through those conditions. I believe Any other non bike specific system would have stopped working within minutes. This system along with the tpx2.0 never quite. Along with your test results this is proving to be the right product for me.

Thank you (those of you testing and posting the results) and to the site for providing a place for that to happen.

I am glad that you find the results helpful!

Honestly I was not expecting a JTG to even the DETC and XLR, with only two heads!

And my heads are not even fully balanced and alligned like Studios, yet they were able to block everything thrown at them.

And yes ,I have been rained on and the system held well.

May I ask where you installed the CPU?

I have mine under the seat.

I am hearing, but haven't seen the data, that the radar detection capabilities of the Adaptiv system is junk.

So many options out there...

Radar systems: R7, NetRadar DSP, Adaptiv
Laser: ALP, Adaptiv

Each has its pluses and minuses, but I'm really starting to lean to the full ALP/NetRadar DSP setup. It's stealthy, both visually (in terms of flashing lights and such), and electronically (not detectable). While the sensors are weatherproof, the CPU isn't but I have lots of room on my RT to put it.

Make no mistake, I am not happy with the financial raping my wallet is going to take and I don't even know if it makes sense financially since I'm at 85mph (where the cops don't seem to mind) 99.999% of the time, but the few times I hit 90 in wide-open spaces, I got nailed twice and fined once. Since nearly all of my bike riding is with the IBA, I am not interested in running triple-digit speeds since it really negatively affects range, but I don't want to have to worry about every single break in the treeline or what's over the next hill, ya dig?

I think I can keep this expenditure from the old lady's eyes, but I'll have to sell my recumbent to help cover the costs. :)

ALP on ta motorcycle why spend 1000 dollars + when you can spend 450 dollars on a motorcycle specific radar jammer that can JTG all guns on the market including Dragon eye , the system is water proof and even has a flashing light and water proof remote .

The only + of the ALP I can think of is that on a rear shot you may have a better chance to jam dragon eye which what are the chances really unless you live in laser infested Georgia.

Another benefit of the ALP is blue tooth which is sadly missing from the TPX, but there are ways around it where you will still pay less.

My set up is R7 at the handle bars with the TPX , I mean if your wallet or your credit line is huge then go for it, I honestly think that it is a huge over kill,

For 1000 dollars you can get the R7 plus the TPX.

Also installation on the TPX is fairly simple and easy, I don't know how many cables you are going to be dealing with the ALP.

and the + side is that you can get the R7 which you can also use in your car.

Whichever you chose is up to you.

But ALP for a bike has not proven superior at jamming DETC any more than the TPX with two heads.

Edit: the only reason I was suggesting the Adaptiv radar unit is because it is water proof

Oh I get it...I really do. I'm still going over it in my head trying to justify it because eventually the old lady will get wind of what I did and then I would be forced to buy her that $8,400 Yamaha piano she wants.

So I am impressed with the performance of the TPX and it's low cost, but maybe a little hesitant because it can only handle one head at the rear (why do I feel yucky typing that? LOL). Yes the ALP will straight-up bitch-slap every laser system out there and make them make it a sammich, and yes it's not inexpensive, but the laser detection/jamming is only half of the equation...

I live in Middle Tennessee and do multiple long distance rides; these rides can range from about 1,650 miles in under 24 hours to 3,200 in under 48. I ride all over the country, including the great revenue-generating states of GA and VA. Now VA doesn't look kindly to speed detection devices, so the last thing I want is to have a box mounted in the cockpit of the bike with lights all over it (I know the R7 can have the screen off, but it will light up for alerts). I am not spending $600 for the R7 plus another $150 for another Sena device to connect the audio output of the R7 to my 20S via BT, not to mention it's not waterproof and I'll need a whole series of new mounts for it. It all adds up.

The NetRadar DSP system operates through the phone, making it A LOT EASIER to operate with gloves on (something the R7 won't be). The NR-DSP is also invisible to counter-detection measures as well, something the Adaptiv and R7 (the latter according to Mr. Vortex himself), are not, which means I can ride protected without fear of them detecting the detector.

Now when you add up all of the costs, a full ALP/NetRadar system is only a few hundred more than the Adaptive laser system paired with the NetRader system (I'm ruling out the R7 for bike use for reasons I've stated). It just makes more sense.

As far as the car goes? ****, I don't ride over 80 because The Law don't give no breaks to box drivers. :) Almost 40 years of driving and zero speeding tickets in a car but several on the bike (in my sportbike days).

Well your conditions are very specific, so yeah it sounds the ALP is your best choice.

I ride quite a bit but not as much as you, I wish I did !

I always look up to serious tourers and Adv riders such as yourself.

I consider myself semi serious with 3 long distance rides last year (Georgia Athens, Savannah and New Orleans) from Miami as well as several mid range ones like Bonita beach, key west, Orlando.

But you have me done with your rides! make sure you record and share, if you have a you tube channel let me know.

Safe travels and 0 bites from the LEOs wished!

Thanks...I actually did a ride that was over 3,100 miles from middle Tennessee, to Savannah, to Key West, then to NO, Jackson, MS, Shreveport, Texarkana, Little Rock, Memphis, and back home. I started at noon on Christmas, reached Key West at about 5am, and then got p1ssed on from a severe storm system from NO all the way back. I think it took me about 51 hours to do that, thanks to the traffic in the F-L-A.

Another ride had me going south of Birmingham before turning northward towards Memphis and westward to Denver to see the Wings Over the Rockies museum. Same distance as the above-ride, but finished in about 46 hours.

But there are others who absolute obliterate me when it comes to the number of rides and what they've done, but then, they've been doing this for decades and I just started.

I have a HaloCam M1 on the bike and record the rides but I don't really do anything with the footage (it ain't GoPro-level), and I don't have a youboob channel.

Some pics...
