Now Rickey G. ,
You make me look like an Idiot!:slap2: Be Nice to them till they have at Least 100 post then you can Bust their Balls!:whack:
do an Intro first in the new to the forum section so they don't think your a Troll or a Spammer and B Your B's!:diablo:
I think the problem you will have is accoustics. Without a fairing, music will nearly impossible to hear at speeds above 45mph. The way around this is with a headset inside of your helmet (I have a Goldwing with four speakers and even behind that huge fairing I only use the headset as the speakers are too difficult to hear at speed).
Several companies make headset systems and amplifiers. Autocom, Air Rider (or is it called Cycle Com?), HJC and J&M. Cost is dependent on what features you want. Intercom, CB, FRS, etc.
I think WORM has the right idea..... I've talked to others and if you get the right ear buds that block out wind noise its a good deal.... Remember the V-ROD will never have the luxuries of a Gold Wing ........:2cents
I've got an autocom system with full duplex driver/passenger intercom, GPRS (FRS) bike to bike, cell phone interface and MP3 player interface. The system automatically mutes the music whenever the driver or passenger talk, the FRS has either a PPT or VOX and everything mutes when the cell phone rings. Passenger and driver can hear and talk on the cell phone or FRS.
It's a killer system that's the size of a large pack of cigarettes and sits in the HD frame bag wired to the accessory fuse with a quick disconnect. (it will work off a 9V battery too). Even without the FRS and MP3 it's a great intercom.
BTW, I used to ride a BMW and you know how we like our electronic gadgets
Mjw, I have the autocom system installed on another one of my bikes, a Honda VFR, and agree it is a killer system, by far the best system around. I found it far better than than the sound / intercom system on my Ultra or any of the other after market systems that I have tried.
I bought a system off of ebay, but since I went cheap, I got whay I paid for. I might try the autocom system for long rides. Nice to be able to talk evey now and then. For music, I want to try that Sony setup that is a minidisc/fm/tv/weatherradio, that will record from any source, not just a pc.
Mines an MP3 player with ear clip on headphones. The player holds 1500 tunes. Only problem is the volume adjustment does not bring the music up high enough, as the volume limiter works to keeps you from harming your ears. With a full helmet it works okay until you get to about 60 or so, and it is hard to hear.
Add the problems of putting the damn thing on, battery charging, and it is a total pain in the ass. Ended up giving the batteries and charger I bought to my daughter, and I am not sure where the MP3 player went.
We are planning a ski trip, and I would imagine that the MP3 player would be good for that, and not much more. Brekenridge in March, anybody gonna be there?
