the nice thing about being on a bike is you have a very small radar signature (meaning they can't measure you from as far away) since you have such a small surface area to reflect back radar waves.

Is that true though? I thought it mainly bounced off of headlights and stuff.. but yeah it does make sense a smaller target would be harder to clock the farther away you are.

Crazy wide angle makes it look farther in the vid than it really is though, but he was behind trees and earth, then popped out from that long corner behind a car. It didn’t give me a ton of time!!

Thanks! Yeah it was actually kind of strange to see two bikes right in a row in that short of time while I was making a vid. It’s in Upstate NY in the boondocks- back in Aug I think, on a road I haven’t been on in decades. Quite a few bikers out on nice days actually.. because we’re all coop up all winter!

Nice save! Do you run you your DFR7 with Ka Wide or Narrow? 34.80 is definitely creeping up there for KA Narrow!
I think I run KA wide and K narrow and I don’t run X at all. I don’t get many Ka falses that I am aware of so I just keep it wide open! Yeah that was weird seeing 34.8!

Probably best that you run it Wide. NY seems to have Stalkers transmitting all over the place
