    Does anyone have experience mounting a Valentine One radar detector on their 6th gen? I am interested in doing it inconspicuously but still removable.

    Yep, done it. Not inconspicuous at all though, sits above rt. grip (my Garmin sits over lt. grip). Have had it mounted center, but moved location later.

    Ride fast enough, you don't need one ... lol ... honestly, I have no use for those things. I have this little trick that will stop you from ever getting another speeding ticket again ... DO THE SPEED LIMIT. LOL!!!

    If I get caught speeding, it's my own damn fault for breaking the speed limit and I'll take my lumps like a man.

    Carl, How did you attach it? Saeng? Are you happy with the mounting? Jeff I've used the escort then the valentine since they came out. I have only gotten one ticket. I drive defensively but every time im looking down at the speedo its way faster than Im expecting :) I feel naked without it!

    I went with a Ram Mount setup for mine. The base plate that I'm using has a magnetic center section and there's a metal plate that you attach to the bottom of the RD, easy on and easy off. I have not had any issues with it falling off or even hinting that it would. All the parts and pieces can be purchased from Revzilla or Ram Mount directly.

    Jeff, although I agree with you in regards to speeding, there are sometimes when traffic is moving much faster than the limit, so sometimes you have to speed to keep up with the flow, unless you want to be a rolling road hazard! There have been a few times that I found myself going above the speed limit and you only need to be going about 5 MPH above to have an over zealous CHP officer to pull you over. I've been on several rides where the RD theoretically has kept me from receiving a "performance" award. Although I don't always have it with me when I commute, I will when I'm heading South to San Diego, as people on the 5 fwy haul ass!
