I have my Redline mounted in the beak, in a rather inconspicuous box. It's powered by the headlight wire and the detector is on whenever the engine is running, all automatically and seamlessly. Alerts come to me thru wired ear buds, with a nice female voice telling me which band is causing the threat. I have a small mute button mounted on the left handlebar and whenever I have an alert that I'm not interested in, I simply tap the mute button and the current threat is muted. The unit automatically un-mutes when that threat is gone, and it's ready to alert at full volume for the next threat. A small bright single red LED light in my dash confirms power-on status and it also flashes when the detector alerts. It continues to flash thru muted alerts, which is also very handy. The box is totally waterproof. I have not removed the detector from the bike all summer. I wash the bike, park it at hotels, restaurants, etc and never worry about theft or water damage or anything. It's that inconspicuous, plus it requires a T10 screwdriver for removal. I live in Canada where detectors are illegal, yet do most of my riding in the USA and I cross the border weekly and I have no worries of getting busted.
I guess the only drawback to my mounting is that I don't have easy access to my detector to toggle between settings. But I ride in rural areas 90% of the time so leaving it set with my custom settings works well for me. If I decide to adjust settings, it takes me 5 minutes to access it with the T10 screwdriver I carry in the top case.
I'd be happy to post pictures here but posting pics on this forum requires a background in IT, which I do not possess.
