Left or right side mounting? Where are the Police?
I am wondering about mounting my V1. I want to mount it as 'outboard' the bike as possible to allow pick up any radar behind me. That got me thinking, on Interstate Highways the most likely location of the Patrol car is the median, correct? However, driving along a undivided highway the Patrol car is most likely along the right shoulder, etc. correct?
What got me started on this was reading the V1 site about motorcycle use of the V1 itself and they mentioned mounting it as far away from your body as possible to reduce the 'blind' spot created by your body. The blind spot started my anal analysis process.
Anyone have any ideas on the best arrangement or does it really matter?
