Used to ride a Heritage. Did not want to add that H-D thing. Not surprised it is a piece of... Curious to know what other options exist out there that are decent. I'm not confident there are any for the Heritage.

If your buddy doesn't mind ear plugs/buds and wears a helmet, on long rides I'll stick an MP3 player/iPod in a jacket pocket, with the music delivered by some outstanding Etymotic ER6i ear plugs/buds. Great sound reproduction, minimal to no wind noise, but can still safely hear the bike, emergency vehicles, etc.

That's what I do..........it works good and it does not mess up the lines of the bike!

I've seen them at rally's etc, but personally have never seen a set-up I liked. Too busy and messes up the lines in my opinion. I use a portable XM/MP3 player from Pioneer with earphones. Mine (several years old now) has 1Gig of storage for mp3's or I can switch it to XM. The remote is programable with 20 favorite stations and I carry the radio in a variety of places (belt, armband, tankbag, etc). Putting the remote in my left pocket, I can find the buttons by feel for switching from XM to MP3's or between 20 presets, including the XM traffic station for my local area. Depending on overhead obstructions like trees, etc I occasionally lose signal on XM, but then I just switch over to MP3's and roll on down the road.

I'd use a deck designed for a boat. They are sealed against moisture better.

I was asked by PM for images of the Cycle Sound system on my 08 Heritage I figured I'd post them so all could see in case anyone else is interested.

Looking Forward:

G K Vessa, check them out. Best part is you can use them when you're not riding. gkvessa dotcom Sunglasses with MP3 players, FM tuners built in, even work Bluetooth.

Kuryakyn Airmaster. Great sounding stereo and great look on the heritage. I will try and get some pics posted later this evening.

If he wants tunes tell him to buy an iPod or iPhone, and buy some SkullCandy Titan Chrome headphones. They are the best sounding headphones I've ever heard. Even sound like they got little subwoofers built in them. Very distinctive bass, mid & highs, and no distortion.

I bought a pair going off a friend's recommendation, and he was right. They're the most kickass headphones I've ever heard.
