We’re I’m at, United States, it’s only illegal in a few areas. The false alerts depends upon the filtering of the detector. The cheaper detectors aren’t that great, but the valentine 1 gen2, uniden r7, and escort max 360c are good detectors.
I’m using the escort max360 right now and it’s a good detector, a little old. It has Bluetooth, and through the app I can hear alerts on my cardo headset. Combined with Waze I haven’t received a speeding ticket in years.

New Michelin tires mounted yesterday. Nothing fancy just ole Pilot Powers that were heavily discounted. Only bad part was had to get the 190/50 for the rear no 55. Oh well I will survive it. Gotta say though the 190/50 looks the business width wise on the rear. I have the K-tech rear shock thought about changing the ride height up to what a 55 rear profile gives me. However after looking under the bike It would be simpler to remove the shock to make the adjustment. Way to tight to get two large wrenches on that shock under there mounted.

Did the throttle reset where you put on diagnostic mode and turn ignition off with the throttle at full open. Definitely a noticeable change in throttle behavior for the good!

Finally got my radar detector, phone, and camera where I want them. View attachment 43306
Nice set up.

A word of caution about phones on the GSXS/other litre bikes.
Later phones of all makes have optically zoomed/focused cameras and there are now a plethora of reports of the focus function failing after mounting on the bars.

I’ve had 2 go now.

Older, electronic zoom models don’t suffer the same.

I tackled the ride height adjustment on the rear K-tech shock. I have it raised up 6mm in ride height verse what I was running stock height with the 190/55 rear tire. Al this was to account for the loss of the 190/55 tire back to the 190/50. Didn't go the full 7.5mm difference because I am already 3mm low on the front with the fork tubes raised up. Test ride confirmed it handles just as good if not better like this than with the 190/55 rear tire. Plus the 190/50 looks better on the rear of this bike over the 190/55 IMO. Didn't have to remove the shock I found a wrench in my tool box that would fit in under there from chain side and make the adjustment. I have the full M4 exhaust so not to cramped under there.

It’s the way to go if you want quicker handling.
I dropped the front by 5mm ages ago and haven’t looked back.
It loads the front just enough to make corners a dream without compromising braking too much

Yesterday I filled up with petrol for the first time since 1April. (13.0l for $13.90) Only riding the 5km back and forth to work. Looking forward to travel restrictions easing this weekend and being able to get out on the highway

I went on a ride today, and fell in love with my bike. I’ve always liked it, but often thought I need to change the handle bars as they aren’t quite right; the mirrors could be better; exhaust; a PCV ; add this, swap that. Today... all that melted away and I just enjoyed the ride. When I got off, I just stared at it like my high school crush. <3
