Let me attest to the fact that your iPod should not come in contact with the vibrations from your bike! Well, the hard drive types (video), anyway.dcom said:I wouldn't put an iPod on the handlebars. I had one mounted in a bracket on an '04 Heritage and it worked for about 30 minutes then the iPod locked up due to the vibration. I didn't think there was much, but apparently it was enough to screw things up. Now I just keep the iPod in my pocket and no lockups yet. I use it with some Etymotic ER-6i Isolator earphones.

I've been toying around the idea of setting up some type of system on my bike as well. I like this sytem http://www.customdynamics.com/2_wheel_tunes_speakers.htm but I'm concerend it won't be loud enough at cruising speed with my Reinhards. I like the idea of putting a sub in the airbox, then there is the wiring and the additional mounting for my XM and so on. A lot to think about to get it right.
spinedoc said:I switched from this system to the 2 wheel tunes system the OP asked about. Very nice system. I also upgraded to the highway acoustical baffles and they made quite a difference. The system is well worth the cash.
One caveat however is that the company went out of business, so there may be warranty issues. I hear they were bought out and will be released again under a new name, but have no idea if they will warrantee the old customers.
I got them from customdynamics.
Which amp are you using? The one I have is a piece of crap (but it was cheap - connection?). I'm looking for a better one.Thegeneral said:I've got the 2wheel tunes - modified(bent) the brackets they sent to mount the speakers to the wind shield - put the amp under the fuse block above the rear cylinder..

I have the same removable windshield as you do. Do you only listen to to the spekers with the windshield on, or have you tried them without it? I only use my windshield on long trips, so getting enough sound is important considering the loud pipes and wind.Thegeneral said:I've got the 2wheel tunes - modified(bent) the brackets they sent to mount the speakers to the wind shield - put the amp under the fuse block above the rear cylinder..
