Thank You Valentine!
Was riding between thunderstorms yesterday evening. On a 2 lane mostly no passing zones. Behind 4 cars, the leader going right at posted, maybe a little under.
Everytime I'd go down a gear and ready to twist it hard and pass them all, the Valentine would bark and I'd go to watching my manners and also looking for the source of the radar. about the third time it did that, looked down at the Valentine and noticed it indicated the source was behind me. As I was headed east, sun at my back and wearing bifocal glasses, did not notice the law right behind me. He was lighting up the oncoming traffic looking for a speeder. He almost got me as I probably would have exceeded the 50 mph limit by just a little if I were to pass all 4. Second gets me to 80 in short order.
That thing has paid for itself a few times over in saved speeding citations.
Made it to Dave's and back and only got sprinkled on twice, once in each direction.
