    radar detector

    I just installed the motorcycle specific detector on the K1200GT. It looks cool and works very well.

    It does look really cool. What year GT do you have and color GT do you have?

    Luz:

    Are you using helmet speakers with it, and do they work i.e. you can hear them over the wind noise?

    2007 K1200gt

    Pearl is a white 2007 that has 12,500 miles now. The wireless audio for the helmet works fine. The only problem is determining if it is actually on (if it's daylight). I've started re-starting the unit to make sure I can hear it cycle thorugh the different bands. It is very usable at speed.

    visual update

    I ordered the visual update and a car mount, but haven't used either, yet. I'll get home next week and try them out. I probably don't need the visual, but it's not that expensive and I like "belt and suspenders" approach.

    I've had one mounted since July, 08. Easy to install. Flashing alert lights are visible in bright light. I use City NoX mode all the time in town and Highway mode only on the Interstates. In the twisties it doesn't matter because it can't see around curves. It senses being lit up from the rear, too. Occasionally convenient if you're not paying any attention to the mirrors.

    Notably, it is waterproof (the seller says water resistant) but I've had it in downpours and no apparent effect.

    that's good to know, as I have just installed it. I'm going to use it in the car, as well, to get a handle on how it works. So far, I've left it in Highway mode, just to get it to go off more. I'll learn eventually. Thanks for the update.

    flashy thing

    I just installed the light flashy thing to go with the wireless audio update for the unit. I haven't ridden with it yet, but it looks cool.
