My girlfriend bought a Burgman. She wanted me to figure out a radio install (I thought satellite) but from the reads appears an iPod or MP3 would be a better fix. Now, how do we talk bike to bike? A $40 CB to mate with my wing or would something else suffice?
1- Hondaline CB designed to integrate with the GL1800 audio system (very costly compared to what CB costs in other applications) and a low-cost portable/mobile CB on the Burgman.
2- Low-cost mobile/portable CBs on both bikes - see Sierra electronics for a good solution along this order
3- FRS/GMRS radio on both bikes - This solution may be one of the best (FRS/GMRS radios are fairly inexpensive, reliable and useful away from the bikes, i.e. camping/hiking) if you pay attention to several details: Kennedy Technologies has an integration tool for using FRS/GMRS on the Goldwing; it's called FRSet, I think; GMRS requires licensing by the airwaves police (FCC); a very high quality microphone is essential with FRS/GMRS to reduce overmodulation caused by wind noise.
