Vehicle Radar Capture Range Laser Capture Range
Chevy HHR 1.51 miles 1.7 miles
Harley 1.54 miles 1.6 miles
Kawasaki 1.58 miles 1.3 miles
Yamaha 1.53 miles 1.4 miles

and I guess I should have said 1.5 miles not 1/2 mile for the Cop and 9 miles for you with a V-1 or the X50. See here http://www.speedzones.com/long_range_test.html
