Project CBR954RR with Super Streetbike Magazine

The guys over at Super StreetBike Magazine recently installed out TPX Radar Detection System and TPX Laser Jammer System on their CBR954RR.  Instead of following the standard installation instructions, they went a step above and came up with their own "stealth" installation.  We are impressed!  Read up on what they did in this month's issue, available on newsstands everywhere.

AdaptivMount and TPX Detector Set Up on Kawasaki Ninja 650

Found some old pictures that we took when we were setting up the Ninja 650 when we got it this last summer.

We used AdaptivMount Control Mount on the left control housing.  We first removed the stock pinch bolts on the bike:

Then we installed the "base" of the Control Mount along with the supplied spacers and extended screws:

That's it.  Simple as that.

Now onto the TPX Detector.  First, we connected the Wiring Harness directly to the battery terminals:

Next, we placed the Visual Alert on top of the gauge cluster using the supplied double-sided tape:

Now we connect the Visual Alert to the Wiring Harness:

Now we tidy up the wires:

And we are done!  It's as easy as that!

AdaptivMount Install on BMW K1300S

We had a great time at MotoGP at Laguna Seca last weekend.  The crowd was in force and it was extremely busy and fun at the same time.

At the race, we installed our AdaptivMount on our friend Tom's shiny new BMW K1300S.  It was simple and easy.  This is how you do it:

First, remove the two pinch bolts with the torx key that came with the bike, located underneath the seat.

Then, install the base of the mount with the supplied spacers and extended screws.

Tighten the screws.

Install the links and top plate, and we are done!  Yes, it's that simple.

A big thank you for everyone that stopped by our booth at the race track... See you next year!

2012 SML Shootout

Last week I did my annual pilgrimage of riding the bike out to Texas for the SML Shootout.  Even though the ride is long and hot, I've always looked forward to the trip.

I left the office on Wednesday afternoon and got on Interstate 10.  As expected, I had to fight LA traffic and pretty much had to split lanes until Riverside, and then it was wide open.  I was cruising along pretty good and came upon my first threat in Palm Springs. I was going along pretty well around 90, when the trusty TPX Detector started going off on a weak Ka band.  I immediately let go of the throttle and got my speed back down to around 70.  The alert would fade in and out for about 15 seconds, then it ramped up to full alert in a hurry.  Sure enough, shortly after I spotted a CHP cruiser coming up from behind in my mirrors and went speeding past me.  Count that as a save!

I finished off the ride in Mesa, AZ and spend the night there.  It just so happens that Miss Arizona was holding their pageant there that weekend and all the contestants were staying at the same Days Inn that I was staying in.  I wished I could've stick around for a few days, but, I had to go to Texas for something more important, at least that was what I was telling myself.

For day two I took the scenic route, taking US60, which had some long sweeps and it was a few degrees cooler as it went up the mountains, then over to US70, then back to I-10 in Lordsburg, NM.  As I approached Las Cruces on I-10, the TPX Detector recorded another save.  I was going up a long, gradual incline going at a pretty good pace, and as I was approaching the crest, a K alert came on.  Again, I backed down immediately to the speed limit of 75 and sure enough, once I crested the hill, there was a New Mexico trooper waiting in the median looking for speedsters coming over the hill.  I would've been toast for sure had I not had the TPX Detector!

This year at SML, we tested production unit of TPX Detector Version 2.0 as last year we tested a pre-production unit.  As expected, it detected everything accurately and with plenty of range.  We also tested something else that I can't tell you right now and let's just say, it passed the tests with flying colors.  You'll hear about it as soon as we can let the public know what it is!

After three days of getting cooked in the Texas sun, we finished the tests on Sunday and I hit the road back to California.  I spend the night in Goodyear, AZ, and finished the ride the next day.  Believe it or not, I didn't have a single encounter with any cop on the way back.

The ride to Texas and back was also the first time that I took the GlowRider Jacket on a long trip in some serious heat.  I'm not going to spin it, I was hot riding in 100 degree weather with it, even with all the air vents open, but it wasn't intolerable.  The true-flow air vents definitely helped me stay cool and I'm pleased with how the jacket handled the extreme heat.

All and all, another great SML Shootout weekend, and I'm looking forward to the next one already!
