Coming up with a preventative device to either block or fool this thing is going to take some work. Sounds like a job for the "Myth Busters".
My K-40 in the cars works great, they don't get a reading until you're almost on top of them, giving you plenty of time to check your speed. On our GT's, mounting space is really at a premium on the front, not sure where I'd mount the sending unit. Still chewing on it.
In my case, I really don't need defense on the bike, as when I'm in traffic I just flow with it, and that's where it's most likely to be used. Out in the boondocks, where I'm likely to be going a few MPH over the posted limit, I've never seen anything but radar. Even radar could get you if there's nobody ahead of you to get zapped with instant on radar, but if you check your speed when seeing oncoming traffic, AND have a good radar detector, you really cut the odds down of contributing the the revenue collection efforts.
I haven't had a speeding ticket in at least thirty years or so, but I've been using the best radar detectors that I can find ever since way back when the original whistler came out. That thing was huge compared to modern detectors, and back then they only had X-band, but it worked like a charm.
