Got most everything installed. I have a powered tank bag that I keep the Starcom com unit and Kenwood FRS radio. This way I can just switch it from bike to bike without too much hassle. Use one BMW plug for the bag/XM radio and one for the heated gear. The Givi top box mount's back ordered for a couple weeks, and I just haven't got around to installing the centerstand and Scott oiler. Just need to order some LED's to replace signals/tail lights and a mount for my HID aux lights. :D

Bike looks great. I really like the look of the Pat Walsh crash bars. I am seriously thinking of getting a set as I need a good mounting spot for some highway pegs and the Walsh bars look like the ticket.

The Pat Walsh stuff seems very well made. It all went together easily and feels sturdy. Won't know for sure until I drop it a couple times. :lol:

What? No replacement windshield?
I thought the consensus was they all suck so why waste the money. :lol:

Probably get one when it gets cooler.

Looks cool; I have the Pat Walsh stuff on my 650. It goes tegether great & really helps in the rocky dirt roads we have around here, rocks and/or sand; take your pick. However, when you are riding 2 up on a tight right hander the protrusion for the rear bolt will grind. I have almost cut the edge off; thats the only problem. The highway pegs work great for old knees. Love your electronic. I have a GPS with the Tourteck mount, Givi v 45 & Cortek soft bags.

Dam, it looks like you almost got as many gadgets as me. Now I’ll have to look for other stuff to install. :wink:

Seriously, the bike looks awesome. Do you have the 2610 audio hooked up? I used Mix-It 2 and am very happy with it.

Romeo,
I use Midland 75-822. This is a really nice CB and it comes with external antenna hokeup. I would really recommend it. I know that Cobra makes a unit comparable to this model but from what I read on the web, this is a better unit.

If you want to see this thing in action, stop by and I'll let you play with all of my toys.

Wingman.

Wingman, yup I run the 2610 audio through the mixer then into the Starcom. Works like a charm. I use the HARD setup on my V1 so I don't need audio for that.

You got it, any time. I'm a gadgets feak and love doing this kind of stuff.

BTW: Another alternative you have is to install a J&M CB. I did it for a couple of friends of mine and this is the best and the cleanest installation you can make. The only drawback is you'll need to buy a J&M headset as well, plus the cost will be higher. Overall, if I didnt need to be able to use my headset on both bikes I would have gone that route.

Yeah, I love being able to hear Bitching Betty (2610) throught the headset so I dont have to glance at her every minute or so.

I still have 1 more Mix-It input so I might go with a radar detector. Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced one that has audio output?

install a J&M CB.
Yea I really don't wanna have to go the bank to take out a loan :lol:

I have found that I prefer earbuds as opposed to helmet mounted speakers. Starcom sells a microphone with a stereo jack for the purpose of using ear buds. Now I just to find the right ptt harness.

I actually have one...but its a single-pin harness for an FRS radio so I doubt that would work with the Midland
