Not sure if I posted elsewhere. All problems solved, audio plays thru Autocom as desired and Blinder does its job against Laser. However, rather than the auto-shut-off of some units, mine alerts me both visually AND thru headset/Autocom and I have a switch to kill Blinder and drop to legal speed.
DOES IT WORK? Using a 'laser pointer', yup, works very very well. I have also used my handgun "Laser Trace' grips at a couple of hundred feet, and yes, it works fine. No real-life laser test yet.
WHAT DID I HOPE TO ACHIEVE? I don't speed much other than at times overtaking and/or getting away from Interstate 'wolf packs' which are inherently dangerous to cars and especially cycles. Also, being the lead/only vehicle and singled out 'mistakenly'
And, it was a fun project.
ARE MOTORCYCLES INHERENTLY 'LASERPROOF'. Don't know. We have a very narrow profile and dark colors are best. At least the GT and sport bikes are relatively narrow. But, a couple of years ago I was 'laser-ed' by a very sophisticated unit, described to me by the FL Hwy Patrol as I believe, the 'stalker'. It had a laser device that could track, I think up to 6 vehicles automatically on a video screen (camera) showing each vehicle and the speed dead on the vehicle. I was on the wider/bulbous LT at the time. In defense of my riding it was 65 in a 55 construction zone where construction ceased months ago and the D.O.T. never removed the 55 mph signs. It was a favorite spot, I learned later, that could reasonably be called a 'speed trap'. Thank goodness for lawyers!
