From Charles out of Arizona using a very trick custom paint Aria helmet and a fabricated mount for his 1000RR. Thanks for the great details:

"I have ridden now for a few weeks with my new HARD system and I'm very satisfied. I especially like that the LED doesn't distract but is almost like an unconscious alert."

- From Nils out of Texas:

"Just a quick update on my unit. I used it for my last 2,000 mile trip to Utah. It worked very well with my Valentine One detector by giving me a "heads up" alert when the V-1 got a signal. Probably saved me 2 tickets and maybe 6 hours of driving time by allowing me to go faster.

At first I found the light hard to aim so that I would get a good bright light. In a few minutes of bending the stalk, I was able to mount it in both my Arai and HJC flip up lid. The light is very noticeable by putting a red dot directly in my vision. Also the helmet unit was completely buried in the helmet and could not be felt. This is a great product."

- From Gene out of California:

"‘The system is the bomb. The few times I’ve been out (I’m really sick of all the rain) its quite the toy. The first day I got it I went out for a test ride after dark and all of a sudden it went off ,the red light kind of freaked me out at first, I thought that I had a cop behind me with his REDS on and instantly realized it was the system then I just chuckled to myself! Sport Bike night was this past Thursday at a pizza place it the Twin Cities, everyone mingles and walks around looking at bikes. I’ve got my detector mounted above my speedo and tach. Two guys said good idea but isn’t it hard to read/see, (take your eyes off the road). I showed them the receiver and explained it to them and the one guy looked at the other and said "see we should of signed up with that guy at the cycle show ,yea I know but it sounded to good to be true." Anyway I gave them your web address."

- From Brad out of Minnesota:

"As you know, Legal Speeding is selling this wireless LED device that alerts you when your radar detector sounds the alarm; it fits up under the padding inside your helmet and you place the light in your peripheral vision. I bought one and gave it to my older son to test drive, since he is now returning from a 15-day road trip from S.F. through Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado.

The report is that the LED device works like a champ. My son said that yesterday it saved him from two sure-deal tickets, picking up the police each time, well before they were in sight. When he started his trip, the LED wasn't here yet, so he used a Y splitter from the Passport 8500 to an iPod, and then to ER-6 earplugs (which cut out 15 db of ambient sound and allow a sound source to pass through). So, for the first five days of his ride, my son used the earplug alert, which worked just fine-- the 8500 signal, on low volume, easily overriding the music. The LED caught up with him in Taos, NM and he's been using it since. It makes for a nice, clean installation-- no wires to your helmet unless you want to hear music. It's pricey at $159.95, but tickets cost a lot, too.The URL is:

All other gadgets also worked quite well. The Garmin GPS V sent my son down a dirt road that got worse and worse, so he had to struggle in deep sand to turn the bike around and go back. It only goofed up that one time, failing to discriminate between a highway and a donkey path. The ER-6 earplugs are flawless, but also pricey at $139.00. The URL is:

Everything was mounted on RAM mounts from Cycle Gadgets, whose URL is: and it was all connected to the motorcycle with John Swiatek's EXCELLENT cables.

I read about all of this stuff (and a whole lot more) here on this list and I am forever grateful to all of you who shared your private finds with the rest of us. In two days, when my son returns, I get to keep all the goodies... it'll be my turn to play."

- From Robert out of New Mexico

"I left San Antonio on Saturday the 22nd of June stopping in Dallas to hook up with Aaron Zimmerman of Legal Speeding Enterprises (see post #2554)to let him install my H.A.R.D. system ( We were planning on riding together from Dallas to Hot Springs, but he totaled his BMW 1100S late Thursday night. He was OK, but had to postpone any riding until he aquires another bike. The system worked flawlessly for several days, until I got into a rainstorm, and literally soaked the receiver mounted under my visor. Normally, the small receiver with the flashing LED resides inside a full face helmet, but I wear an open face that necessitated mounting the receiver under my visor. Anyway, I returned home without a working unit. This morning I took the receiver apart, dried it out with a hairdryer, replaced the battery, and lo and behold, it works! I can certainly recommend the unit for anyone with an Escort or Valentine radar detector."

- From Larry out of Texas

"Aaron, I used the H.A.R.D. system last night and this morning on my commute. It's about 21 miles each way and I am usually guaranteed at least one Ka police speed trap a day. In addition, there is one area that has a permanent X band due to some type of traffic monitor.

Your system performed flawlessly. The system even lit up when I had a momentary Ka signal that bounced off of a car in front of me. I have routed my Escort 8500 audio into my Autocom Pro I audio system, so I can hear as well as see the alerts. My audio system did not pick up the signal since it was so short of a duration but your HARD system did alert me. Your system works well with the Autocom, as the Escort only beeps a couple of times before going into automatic mute function, yet your system continues to flash until the signal is clear."

- From Paul out of California

"Hi Aaron. Not sure if you remember, I have a H.A.R.D. system and was having trouble with it working with my older V1 (pre-2000 thick chassis) and concealed display. Upgraded to the latest V1 and everything works great. Been using it a while now and like it a lot. Worth EVERY penny."
