Windsheild time, your bonne must not have the vibration on the highway that mine does. You definately feel when you're going between 60 and 80 MPH. Although, you said you were going almost 100 so I guess you wouldn't of felt it anyway. haha. It really does seem like the cars get smoother the faster you go eh?

I love it too...but how do you keep the numbers from going up and not stopping? I nearly drive with my foot off the pedal...

Yeah, I just got ticketed last Friday. First ticket in over 10 years. My wife'* GP has the HUD, and that really helps. I wish my Bonneville SE had it.

As for getting a radar detector: I got vastly more speeding tickets when I used a radar detector. Where I live now, so many other things use the same radar bands that if I had one it would just be going off continuously, so I don't bother any more.

Still, I have to pay an expensive ticket now. And I was caught by handheld radar by a motorcycle cop.

My radar detector has SAVED me from many many tickets. I haven't had a ticket in years because of it. Now that doesn't mean i speed all the time (which i don't), but when i do, i have a third eye in my windshield to look ahead for those radars. And as far as things using the same bands as detectors, most of the newer detectors filter the junk out.

There used to be detectors with a separate sensor module that you mounted in your grille or something, that connected with a wire to a module in the car that you could mount to the dash or someplace inconspicuous. I'd consider getting one of those if anybody still made them. I just don't like the mess of the window-mounted suction cups and cigar-lighter wiring.

Anybody know if anyone still makes those 2-piece hardwired models?
(Don't mean to threadjack, but I think this is relevant to the discussion.)

Yea, I doubt those things can even get close to 80, let alone 90.

Any radar detector is better than none. Mine picks up all kinds of stuff, but it serves as a reminder for me to slow down, because sometimes when that thing goes off, the cop already knows how fast you were going. I have been saved several times already of tickets.
