I've been thinking about adding a CB to my Wing. Everybody I ride with has a CB, so to be able to communicate with the group, by default, I needed to get one on board. All of you know the OE style CB's are not cheap, and the antenna alone runs around the hundred dollar mark. During a ride this weekend, I met a member I hadn't seen before and noticed he was talking with one of the other members about which channel they were using. Neither of their bikes had a second antenna, so I quizzed them about their radios. Both were carrying a Midland 75-822 portable 40 channel CB on their belt with an earbud and a small push to talk button clipped on their jacket. So clever, they were talking with everyone, and for about $100 +/-. The one member said it just made life easier, as he could switch bikes and could simply use it with either. The other has a 2018 GW and refused to pay the crazy amount of money Honda wanted for that option. I love hanging around smart folks! :grin2:
