    Karl-
    I like the mount for the V1 and I see you have an audio adaptor....then what?
    Do you have a cord to run to your helmet? I've been struggeling with how to better see/use the V1 myself.

    If you have a better pic or a link to the V1 mount I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    On the Valentine 1 (actually your whole project)! So many I know think that the best radar detector is not worth the money. Actually it doesn't look like you have held back on anything-very nice. Gary

    to the V-1, usually I run a remote "stealth display" up to the dash but the S1RR doesnt have room on top of the gauges.

    I do have an audio mixer similar to a "mixit" it is called " tesseract" and the company doesnt currently have a product but by their website think they are working on something.
    the tesseract handles up to 4 audio sources and has the ability to gate 1 of them and to prioritize one also.
    I run a cord out of the front of the seat and wear custom molded earplugs and can see the directionals on the V-1 when I get an alert..

    this bike being setup completly is my 50th birthday present from my wonderful wife (some of you may know Cheryl) and something I have waited for ever since being a teenager and seeing Reg riding the R90S I have waited decades for BMW to build this bike and ridden airheads,oilheads,bricks and slants awaiting it
    this bike is a keeper and will have a home with me for as long as I live.

    Nice bike! I'm a big fan of the BMW motorsport colors.

    I test rode one and was impressed with the bike, but hate those pesky speed suggestions. Really need an autobahn here in the US.

    Thanks for keeping us on your your SRR. Awesome.

    Perhaps I can get one for my 60th, albeit a plain vanilla one.
